West Hollywood

West Hollywood, affectionately known as WeHo, is a city of less than four square miles completely surrounded by the larger, sprawling cities of Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. It just so happens that some of the major icons people associate with Hollywood, like the Sunset Strip, with its many live music clubs, are actually located in the city of West Hollywood. The city was formed in 1984 from a previously unincorporated area of Los Angeles County adjacent to Hollywood at the foot of the Hollywood Hills. The 84th of 88 cities incorporated in Los Angeles County, it’s one of the youngest in the county.
 
Whether you’re into classic rock or alternative, there’s something for everyone in West Hollywood when it comes to its legendary music scene. On Sunset Boulevard, pay tribute to past performers like The Doors or catch a classic-rock tribute band at Whisky A Go-Go—similar shows can also be seen at The Viper Room—and check out The Roxy Theatre, a standard go-to on The Sunset Strip since 1973. On Santa Monica Boulevard, stop by Troubadour, the rock club where legendary performers like Elton John, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, and Randy Newman debuted in the 1960s and 70s.
 
Located on Sunset Boulevard in the heart of West Hollywood, The Comedy Store—which helped launch the careers of Johnny Carson, Richard Pryor, Arsenio Hall, Robin Williams, and Jim Carrey, among other long-time stand-up comics and late-night TV show hosts—regularly hosts performances by popular comedians like Dave Chappelle, Bill Burr, and Harland Williams. Just outside the official boundaries of West Hollywood, you’ll find the legendary Laugh Factory (where stars like Tim Allen, Kevin Nealon, and Alonzo Bodden have been known to perform) and the Hollywood Improv (where comic Nick Swardson is a regular). All are great places to visit if you’re in need of a good belly laugh.
