Lisa's Guide to Beverly Hills
Collected by Lisa Mazan, Collection Hotel Staff
As a Resident Experience Manager at AKA Beverly Hills, it's my job to stay in-the-know to create the best itineraries for our residents. These are a few of my favorite things to do around the Los Angeles area.

Cupcakes may have changed the world of desserts, but there have been revolutionary changes within the cupcake industry itself. One of the most innovative ideas that has been brought forth is the Cupcake ATM, offered by the Beverly Hills chain,...
Pacific Coast Hwy, California, USA
The journey down Highway 1 is the iconic California road trip, and this coastal route is a great choice whether you're in Northern California, the central coast, or in SoCal. But there's something extra special about driving the Pacific Coast...
465 La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048, USA
I went to The Bazaar by Jose Andres at the SLS Hotel last year with a group of friends who had just finished a special event and were looking to have a meal to celebrate. We came here ordered from their water menu, ordered plates of manchego,...
2301 N Highland Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90068, USA
The practically endless summer weather of L.A. means you can catch shows at the outdoor amphitheater that is the Hollywood Bowl from April all the way to October, and the 17,500-seat venue takes full advantage. The Hollywood Bowl has summer...
395 Santa Monica Place #300, Santa Monica, CA 90401, USA
A shopping mall is probably the last place you’d look for a quality brunch, but Sonoma Wine Garden in the Santa Monica Place mall may be the best boozy brunch in Los Angeles. With ocean views and cozy cushioned seating, you are transported from...
1 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90405, USA
Shutters is a preppy beach resort that feels more like Martha's Vineyard than Santa Monica. The amenities are luxury but its ambience is charming. With cool ocean breezes and the beach steps away, there's no better place to unwind and discover the...
1142 Manhattan Ave, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266, USA
The seasonal small-plates sharing menu at M.B. Post brings out the social side of dining. Upon entering, the liveliness wraps you in a friendly bear hug. The decorative accents pay tribute to the space’s post office past and are as thoughtful as...
Venice Fishing Pier, Venice, CA 90292, USA
The Pacific Ocean is a force that calls to some to jump in and join the dolphins that frequent its waters. Temperatures are warmest in August and September, but wet suits are available to rent year-round. Go surfing or take a stand-up...
4129001902, Playa Del Rey, CA 90293, USA
Biking the boardwalk is the best way to experience the beaches and coastline of L.A. Rent a bike in the middle at Dockweiler Beach and either go the 10 miles north through Marina Del Rey, Venice, and the Santa Monica Pier (or keep going to Malibu)...
21150 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu, CA 90265, USA
Dukes is one of several beachside restaurants lining the PCH in Malibu. Located between Malibu Canyon and Topanga Canyon, it is always busy during the weekends. Parking is valet but not too expensive ($5 on a Saturday afternoon) considering...
Venice Canals, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Before L.A. became a concrete network of high-speed freeways, gondoliers used to glide through a series of manmade canals that were built in 1905 to recreate Venice, Italy in Southern California. The remaining two miles of waterways are a peaceful...
