Hope Ewing

There is something about descending below-ground that conjures feelings of mystery and adventure - just ask Alice. In few places is this more true than the underground bar. Secret entrances, darkened staircases, being in the know are all part of the appeal.

There's no better place to enjoy this feeling than Downtown Los Angeles. Early 20th-century architectural gems have been revived right and left since the start of the 21st - and with them the basement bars, dance clubs and jazz lounges that once served the booming city’s movers and shakers. Bank vaults, a power plant and historic speakeasies are being redesigned for the thriving Downtown L.A. nightlife scene. Read on for Downtown L.A.’s finest in subterranean drinking, dining and dancing.

There is never a shortage of things to see and do in Hollywood. Even if you're in Los Angeles for a long stay, it might seem as if there isn't enough time to check out all that this world-famous L.A. neighborhood has to offer. When you're in Hollywood, it's best to keep your eyes on alert for the local gems. If you get swept up in the crowds on the main drags, you might miss the Egyptian Theatre or the Hollywood Museum. While the neighborhood's massive dance clubs are a big draw, don't overlook more intimate spaces on Cahuenga Boulevard. Take some time to head down to Melrose Avenue or veer west to La Brea or head east on Santa Monica Boulevard for a performance on Theatre Row or an outdoor movie at Hollywood Forever. Read on for Hollywood hidden gems that you don't want to miss.
