9 Most Instagrammable Spots in West Hollywood

Perfect your selfie at these picture-perfect locations.

West Hollywood is arguably one of the most Instagrammable cities in the world. Just head to the infamous Paul Smith pink wall, and you will see influencers, TikTok creators and tourists vying for valuable wall real estate.

This is a great backdrop, but West Hollywood has so much more to offer your social media feed. Here are some of our current faves in and around WeHo.

Local tip: the landscape changes constantly, so check our Instagram to keep up with the latest.

1. Paul Smith Pink Wall

You may as well start here because, as we mentioned, it gets pretty hectic. We suggest an early start to avoid any unwanted photobombing. Bonus: Carrera Café across the street often features a great wall too.

Where to Find It:  8221 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90046

2. Carrera Café

Just steps away from the pink wall is Carrera Café, where you can take photos and fuel up for the rest of your tour. This sunny, black-and-white tiled shop sells sandwiches, salads, adorable pastries, and other breakfast and lunch fare. They embrace their enviable location with a mural wall program and encourage you to tag them for a chance to be featured.

Where to Find It: 8251 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90046

3. The Walkway at 1 Hotel

Catch an Uber or hike up to the 1 Hotel. They have a lovely walkway with water feature, Dream Catcher by Janet Echelman, and breathtaking views of the city. It’s a great spot to get that “casually walking” shot.

Where To Find It:  8490 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069

4. Alfred at Glossier Alley

The whole Alfred family is photogenic, but there is something so charming about this little spot in the alley. Blink, and you just may miss it. Fountains and outdoor seating make it a perfect place to take a break and a pic. Local tip: Hop next door to Glossier or get a portrait shot on the dramatic wall. They don’t even seem to mind if you take pics inside, but as always, be conscious of their guests. Only some people want to be on your feed.

Where to Find It:  8509 Melrose Avenue, West Hollywood, CA 90069

5. Great White

Keep heading West and check out European-inspired aesthetic with plastered walls, soft woods, clay wall lights, and zellige tiles of Great White. Grab a bite to eat and have someone shoot your effortless catwalk exiting the chic restaurant.

Where to Find It:  8917 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood, CA 90069

SUR in West Hollywood

6. The Vanderpump Empire

Head north on Robertson for Lisa Vanderpump’s two West Hollywood restaurants: SUR and TomTom. They’re both camera-ready in their own ways and located steps from each other. Check their hours because you may just spot a reality TV cast member while you grab something to eat, especially on weekends.

Where To Find It:  Start at 606 North Robertson, West Hollywood, CA 90069

7. James Peter Henry at La Peer 

While in the Design District, pop over to Kimpton La Peer Hotel and check out James Peter Henry’s studio. His working studio anchors the boutique hotel’s patio, adding to the creative vibe. Local tip: His murals can be seen at other spots in the city – visit his Instagram to keep up with his latest.
