Quick Trip to Beverly Hills

Last week, I popped out to LA for a quick work trip. The trip was very quick but I did score a few free hours in Beverly Hills to play. While I’m certainly no west coast expert, here are a few places I recommend if you travel like I do, and need a few suggestions.

Olive & June

If you’re looking to treat yourself, I highly recommend getting a mani/pedi at Olive & June. Inside, the place is so simply chic it’s easy to unwind during your services. The ladies at the BH location were fantastic & are nail art experts. Since I was still rounding out client meetings and additional weddings, I opted for a simpler nail art experience.

Sugarfish

Lunch at SugarFish is a MUST. Hands down, the best sushi I’ve ever had. Choose one of the pre fixed menu options (I did the Trust Me Lite) & you won’t be sorry. In hindsight, go hungry & try as much as you can, because honestly, every bite was incredible.

Shopping on Rodeo Drive

Besides the fact that Rodeo is one of the most beautiful streets anyone could want to shop on, the stores are so fantastically staged; just the site of it is gorgeous. Not to mention, everything is more charming with palm trees.

The Beverly Center is awesome for additional shopping & I also hit up the and The Grove for a quick lunch between meetings on Tuesday in between meetings.

Ladurée

While Ladurée this isn’t a west coast novelty, I can always go for
a macaroon & champagne as a mid-afternoon snack.

In-N-Out

The second I found out I was heading to LA, friends began to make me promise I’d try In-N-Out. While I 100% understand the hype and it was truly delicious, I don’t think any burger joint can top Swensons.

La Scala

Old school Beverly Hills, highly recommend the chopped salad.  Good place to see & be seen.

I also took a quick stroll down Melrose, which is cool area to explore. Very eclectic & chic.

What are your favorite LA spots? Where should I make sure I get to next time?

Cheers,
