Visit famous and infamous Los Angeles bars on this unique tour. Sip your favourite cocktail while you hear Hollywood legends and stories of the great drinkers of yesteryear.
Enjoy the period décor and funky features in the lounges. You may find wonderful carved wood, off-beat décor, and even the odd 45rpm juke box.
This tour is not only a chance to explore the past, it’s also a great opportunity to mix with the locals, or even have a star sighting.
Explore LA’s classic watering holes on the Los Angeles ‘Stars and Bars’ Tour.
Accompanied by your expert English-speaking guide, venture out on the “Walk of Fame” and learn about the stars that dot Hollywood Boulevard, both literally and figuratively. The famous and infamous bars along the walk were lunch spots and evening haunts to the celebrities and wannabes of Hollywood's Golden Age, and still appear frequently in film and television. Speakeasies, mobster hangouts and even a “Writer's Room” are the lesser-known histories lodged within these historic hot spots.
Go behind the scenes - behind the beautiful Art Deco facades and bright neon lights--where these bars, lounges and restaurants are host to celebrity lore, ghost stories and maybe even star sightings.
You'll stroll the boulevard on foot, stopping into bars of note and admiring iconic buildings along the way. We'll enjoy select drink tastings at designated locations and get to know where the locals go!
At the end, your leader will return you to the joining point or provide advice on other nightspots where you can continue the evening independently.
