    17 18 19 Finish Start your stroll at the Beverly Hills Conference & Visitors Bureau (239 S. Beverly Drive). In case you hadnt noticed, youre on SoBev (South Beverly Drive) where locals and celebrities shop and dine! Want to feel like youre part of Entourage? Pop down to Urth Caff (267 S. Beverly Drive) and do lunch just like the boys in the blockbuster HBO series. Head one long block south (bearing left as you do) and peek in at the Avalon Hotel (9400 W. Olympic Blvd. just east of S. Beverly Drive), featured in the Oscar-winning film, Dreamgirls. Before it became a hotel, it was an apartment building with none other than Marilyn Monroe as a tenant! Now turn around and walk north again on South Beverly. As you head north, stop by the charming boutique, Harmony Lane (189 S. Beverly Drive), and youll soon be sportin the same style as Eva Longoria and Jessica Alba. Continue north to Wilshire Boulevard and take a left until you reach the Beverly Wilshire (9500 Wilshire Boulevard), a Beverly Hills landmark. For some, a hotel for others, a residence. Elvis Presley called it home while filming several movies, and Warren Beatty lived here for 10 years in his bachelor days. People from all over the world still flock to this hotel where Pretty Woman was filmed. Tucked inside the hotel are two exceptional restaurants The Blvd and Wolfgang Pucks first steakhouse, CUT perfect for a little people-watching. Perhaps youll be seated at the same table where Hollywood A-listers (Brad & Angelina, Tom & Katie, Will & Jada) have dined before. Cross the street to Two Rodeo on Rodeo Drive. Recognize the cobblestone Via Rodeo path from the chase scene in Hollywood Homicide with Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett? Or perhaps its more familiar to you from the TV series, Nip/Tuck? Drop into Jimmy Choo (240 N. Rodeo Drive) where Jessica Simpson and Beyonce shop for sassy, designer shoes. Slip into a pair of your own and keep walkin! Continuing north on Rodeo Drive, youll find youre smack dab in the middle of the playground to the stars. With Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Prada on your left (did we just pass Mariah Carey with a Gucci handbag on her arm?), and Harry Winston, Michael Kors and Chanel to your right, the world is your oyster. As you head north to the 400 block of Rodeo Drive, look for the classic, tailored style of Brooks Brothers (468 N. Rodeo Drive). Bet you didnt know that, in this store, Ashton Kutcher was fitted for a wedding suit. Yes, the one he wore at his marriage to Demi Moore.

    OTHER NOTABLE VENUES WORTH A VISIT: For outdoor dining and a little star gazing, Canons the drive : Via Alloro (Italian) 301 N. Canon Drive, Xian Restaurant (Chinese) 362 N. Canon Drive, Il Pastaio Restaurant (Italian) 400 N. Canon Drive, Porta Via Restaurant (Italian) 424 N. Canon Drive, La Scala Restaurant (Italian) 434 N. Canon Drive. Youre sure to recognize these famous backdrops: The Beverly Hilton |Home of the annual Golden Globe Awards | 9876 Wilshire Blvd., Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences |Home of all things Oscar | 8949 Wilshire Blvd., Greystone Mansion |Location for numerous feature film shoots| 905 Loma Vista Dr. Imbibe at these celeb hangouts: Bar210/plush Lounge (at The Beverly Hilton) |True to its name, its plush | 9876 Wilshire Blvd., Bar Nineteen12 at The Beverly Hills Hotel (Mojito jelly shots in every flavor |9641 Sunset Blvd., Crustacean Restaurant |The must have garlic noodles |9646 S. Santa Monica Blvd.

    If the All-American chop house is more to your liking, then cross Wilshire Boulevard at Barneys New York and veer to the right on Dayton Way. Immediately on your right, duck into The Grill on the Alley (9560 Dayton Way). Some of the biggest deals in Hollywood, brokered by some of the most powerful names in the entertainment industry (think Sumner Redstone, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Brian Grazer), are hashed out over lunch. Steaks, chops, chicken pot pie? Who knew?

    Feeling a little weary at this point? Consider a stop at Mr. Chow (344 N. Camden Drive just a half block north of Barneys New York) where you could be rubbing shoulders with Jerry Bruckheimer or Paris Hilton. Waitstaff here take the guesswork out of ordering just tell them your favorite foods, and youre sure to be served the most mouthwatering Asian delicacies.

    As you leave Anastasia, head south again on Bedford until you reach Wilshire Boulevard. There in front of you the titans of shop-ping. To your right, Neiman Marcus (9700 Wilshire Boulevard), directly ahead, Saks Fifth Avenue (9600 Wilshire Boulevard) and to your left Barneys New York (9570 Wilshire Boulevard). Imagine running into Victoria Beckham or Katie Holmes as you head in to explore any one of these fashion meccas it could happen! Just around the corner (south on Bedford Drive), the definitive eyebrow expert, Anastasia makes her home at 438 N. Bedford Drive. Anastasia has shaped and created the highly sought-after looks of celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna and Oprah. Keep your wits about you theres more to see! Take a left as you leave Nics and another left at S. Santa Monica Boulevard. The now famous confectionary, Sprinkles Cupcakes (9635 S. Santa Monica Boulevard), is ahead (just before Bedford Drive). Youve seen them on Oprah and Dr. Phil. Now its your turn to indulge in red velvet, peanut butter chocolate or any of their other scrumptious cupcake varieties. A U-turn and three blocks will bring you back to the top of Canon Drive and Nics (453 N. Canon Drive), frequented by the likes of Demi and Ashton and celebrated for their martini offerings in just about every flavor imaginable. But the real draw is owner Larry Nicolas one-of-a-kind Vodbox an icebox cooler featuring a selection of exotic vodkas from all over the world. Once you reach Canon Drive, your choices are many. Turn to the right and in half a block, youll land at Celebrity Vault (345 N. Canon Drive) chock full of celebrity memorabilia. Recent exhibits have showcased timeless photos of Marilyn Monroe and James Dean. Another two blocks south, and youre standing in front of one of Beverly Hills hottest and most fa-mous restaurants Spago (176 N. Canon Drive). This quintessential and iconic dining establishment regularly draws celebrity clientele like Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock and Sidney Poitier, its true, but Spago has stood the test of time because of its reputation for amazing and innovative classic California cuisine.
