Plan the Ultimate Game Day Getaway in West Hollywood


The Big Game is just around the corner! On February 13, the Los Angles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals will battle it out at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. West Hollywood is located about 30 minutes from SoFi, making it the ideal destination for a Big Game getaway.

Whether or not you have tickets to the game – or even if you’re just in it for the parties and snacks – here’s how to plan your ultimate game day getaway in WeHo.

Book the Perfect Crash Pad

Accommodations in West Hollywood range from stylish-yet-affordable stays to luxury hotels with rooftop pools.

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 the Big Game at a West Hollywood 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.

The Naughty Pig and Barney’s Beanery are a few more West Hollywood sports bars to check out.

Hit the Legendary Sunset Strip

The Troubadour, a rock ‘n’ roll institution on The 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 the 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.

Keep the party going after the game at The Troubadour, The Den or another legendary Sunset Strip venue.

For the ultimate West Hollywood experience, head to Whisky a Go Go the night before the Big Game for Hollywood Roses: A Tribute to Guns N’ Roses. The Whisky was a favorite venue and hangout for Axl Rose and the rest of the band when they rose to fame on The Sunset Strip in the ’80s and ’90s.

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

Catch L.A., where every brunch is worthy of your social feed.

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.
