People & Lifestyle
Popularly known as WeHo, West Hollywood was incorporated as a city in 1984, but the area’s reputation for being a progressive hub long precedes this. The iconic Chateau Marmont has been featured in countless movies, including La La Land and A Star Is Born. Writers including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Hunter S. Thompson, and Quentin Tarantino have all produced work while staying in the hotel. From the 1960s onward, countless legendary music acts have played gigs and hung out at clubs along the Sunset Strip. The Doors and Led Zeppelin were early trailblazers of a live music scene that later incubated acts such as Mötley Crüe and Guns N’ Roses. This storied corner of Los Angeles remains a hotbed of creativity for the movie, music, and fashion industries.
