Find Your Pre-Game Ritual
Before a big game – especially for your favorite team – the pre-game ritual is essential.
Whether it’s fueling up with a killer breakfast, taking a yoga or spin class at a local fitness center, treating yourself to a pampering spa day, exploring WeHo street art or taking a hike on one of Los Angeles’ many scenic trails, West Hollywood has everything you need to help you get your game face on.
Catch a Game at a Local Sports Bar
West Hollywood is best known for our buzzy nightlife, and we’re also home to a wide range of sports bars for pre-gaming, post-gaming or all of the above.
With more than 25 flat-screen TVs, plush booths and a swanky country club vibe, 40 Love is one of the most photo-worthy sports bars you’ll find anywhere.
Hi Tops is an LGBTQ-friendly sports bar serving “gourmet stadium food,” while nearby GYM Sportsbar and Grill prides itself on being West Hollywood’s original LGBTQIA+ sports bar.
The Naughty Pig and Barney’s Beanery are a few more West Hollywood sports bars to check out.
Hit the Legendary Sunset Strip
No weekend in WeHo is complete without a visit (or three) to The Sunset Strip. Where classic rock n’ roll meets upscale luxury, hedonism is celebrated in this world-famous nightlife hub.
If you’re planning to catch a game on The Strip, head over to Rock & Reilly’s. This Irish sports pub offers a complimentary order of chicken wings with all 60 oz. beer purchases on game days.
Then, keep the party going at The Troubadour, The Den, Whisky a Go Go or another legendary Sunset Strip venue.
Once your night is over, be sure to grab a cheeseburger or pizza at one of these top late-night eateries.
Find Your Morning-After Remedy
A weekend of celebrating can take its toll. But have no fear – West Hollywood is home to many breakfast and brunch spots that can cure even the most severe hangover.
Stroll from your hotel to grab an Angus Brisket Breakfast Burrito at Dialog Café or a stack of OG Griddle Cakes topped with whipped sea-salted butter and toasted cinnamon sugar at Breakfast by Salt’s Cure. And if those don’t do the trick, try a little hair of the dog with a Bloody Mary at Kitchen 24.
