LOS ANGELES TRIP FINAL PART

Hope you are loving these posts about my latest trip to Los Angeles. In this last part, I wanted to share with you some cool restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs and fun places to visit if you are in Los Angeles. So lets start with the restaurants. :)

Spago Restaurant is located in the heart of Beverly Hills on 176 North Canon Dr, one of the best spots to eat in Beverly Hills. Celebrities such as George Clooney, Zoe Saldana , Whoopi Goldberg, La Toya Jackson, Christina Aguillera, Paris Hilton, Larry king, Sean Connery, Courteney Cox, Gwen Stefani and husband Gavin Rossdale, Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Tom Hanks, John Mayer,  Bruce Springsteen and wife Patti Scialfa, Oprah Winfrey, Jane Fonda, Madonna and many more... love this restaurant. This one is for sure on my to do list next time I am in LA. But don't forget to book ahead of time.
On 246 North Canon Dr. in Beverly Hills right next to Spago, you have Mastro's Steakhouse. Another famous restaurant. It's just one block down from Rodeo Drive.  You can also spot famous celebrities at this restaurant such as: the Beckhams, Ashley Tisdale, Selena, Brad Pit, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, The Kardashians, Lamar Odom, Adam Levine and many more...
 
 
If you like hot dogs and hamburgers The Carney Train offers apparently the best in LA. I didn't try this one since I don't eat hot dogs or hamburgers. But I really liked the train, it's so cute and apparently it was featured on several movies.


Mariasol is a great restaurant on Santa Monica Pier. We liked this one! Awesome location!!! Lovely spot to stop on the Pier for some drinks and a tasty meal.
