One of the biggest draws for tourists to Beverly Hills is the opportunity to see and potentially meet celebrities. Beverly Hills is a hub for movie and music stars living in California, and is the city where many celebrities attend award shows. Keep your eyes peeled during your trip to Beverly Hills and you just might see a star.

Eat Where the Celebrities Eat

While there are a variety of top-tier restaurants in Beverly Hills and the surrounding area, some of these high-class restaurants are more frequented by stars than others.

Begin with Gordon Ramsay at The London West Hollywood, where Ramsay’s famous cuisine is given an American twist by Executive Chef Anthony Keene. This very posh spot is known for attracting stars like Sophia Bush and Khloe Kardashian. Be sure to stop by from 5-7pm for $5 world-class cocktails. If you’re in the mood for Italian food, head over to Ceccioni’s West Hollywood on Melrose Avenue where celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres are regulars.

Head over to Sur Lounge, the location for reality show Vanderpump Rules, and guaranteed you will meet someone famous. Reality star Lisa Vanderpump and husband Ken Todd, unsurprisingly, own this restaurant and are both often seen hanging around.

Look Out for Hotel Roof Parties

It’s no secret that Beverly Hills is where many prestigious events and award shows are held, like the Academy Awards and the Golden Globes. While many stars own a home nearby, many stay in hotels for the event. When you get a bunch of A-list stars together for a high-profile event in Beverly Hills, you’ll often find rooftop parties across the city.

The Thompson Beverly Hills, with its gorgeous private pool lounge and bar, has been identified by the NY Daily News as a top celebrity hangout. Not only will you have the chance to see a movie star, you’ll also be located just a few minutes from the legendary Rodeo Drive.

Visit the Peninsula Beverly Hills, the official host of the 2010 Grammy Awards show party. The Peninsula regularly hosts events that attract celebrities of all levels. As a bonus, the rooftop has a garden restaurant and pool that gives its guests scenic views of Hollywood.

Shop Around Beverly Hills

There’s an endless supply of high-class shops in Beverly Hills. Check out the unique styles at Fred Segal or the always sophisticated Barneys New York.

Want a chance to see Mrs. Victoria Beckham in the flesh? Go window-shopping at her favorite boutique, Maxfield. Maxfield, offering shoppers both high fashion and fabulous styles, and will blow visitors away with its massive clothing selection.¬†Even if you aren’t a big shopper, the flagship stores of worldwide brands like Prada and Versace are a sight to behold.

Spotting a celebrity is always exciting, but remember to be respectful. Celebrities are people too, and and no one wants to be pointed at like a tourist attraction. Remember to be respectful and treat celebrities like any other person on the street. If you be nice, you might get a couple pictures or even an autograph.
