14 Places To Visit In 2014

If you're looking for the perfect place to spend your Saturday, celebrate your anniversary or birthday, take someone on a first date, or just need something fun to do tonight, look no further. Here are 14 must-visit spots for 2014!

Rare By Drai's:

Victor Drai, the pioneer of the nightlife scene in Los Angeles and Las Vegas for the past 20 years, is reinventing the steakhouse experience of the masculine vibe, dark rooms and stuffy waiters. Rare By Drai's is a modern, stylish and excessive eatery in the heart of the Sunset Plaza.

Beachwood Canyon Stairs:

Located at 2800 North Beachwood are some gorgeous stone steps that will give any gym a run for it's money. Although I lose count every time I go up and down, work out your quads in 2014 while breathing in the fresh air of the Hollywood Hills.

Sweet Rose Creamery:

This ice cream shop makes small batches of homemade ice cream using only the best ingredients: organic milk, cream from Clover Organic Farms and eggs from Chino Valley Ranchers. The menu consists of twelve-plus unique flavors all year round. Their third Los Angeles location is opening in 2014.

Plan Check:

Recently opening its newest location on Fairfax, the menu has an assortment of burgers (some topped with ketchup leather) along with unique finds like Salmon Pastrami served with squid ink cream cheese and the Southern Fry chicken sandwich topped with duck breast ham.

Perch L.A.:

An one-of-a-kind rooftop bistro that offers unobstructed views of Downtown Los Angeles, a place to avoid if you're afraid of heights. Perch has two outdoor fireplaces, various fire pits and table seating both indoors and out.

Barnsdall Park:

A hidden gem located at 4800 Hollywood Boulevard has spring and summer Friday Night Wine Tastings for only $25. Enough said.

RivaBella:

In the heart of the Sunset Strip sits a rustic Tuscan farmhouse. Renowned chef Gino Angelini cooks up an Italian feast in the sprawling indoor-outdoor space... With a wine cave.

Hyde Lounge, Staples Center:

SBE and AEG converted suites into a 4,000 square foot space with three bars, a dance hall and private "Great Room" positioned at the arena's stage end. Hyde is the perfect place to be VIP in a sea of 18,000.

Tam O'Shanters:

For over 90 years, Tam O'Shanters has been wining and dining the Hollywood elite. However, their warm hospitality and exceptional food will leave you dancing a Scottish jig.

Lucky Strike:

With three locations across SoCal, Lucky Strike is the perfect place to spend a Saturday night knockin' pins and drinking and eating with friends. If you have out-of-towners, this is the ideal place to possibly see a celebrity!

Willie Jane:

Willie Jane's southern inspired cuisine offers dishes utilizing the harvest from the neighboring establishments. It takes "garden-to-table" and "garden-to-glass" to a whole new level.

Franklin & Co.:

In the middle of Franklin Village is the home of a casual neighborhood restaurant dishing unique, American fare. Inexpensive bar and appetizer menu pairs perfectly with their seasonal cocktail list.

Rosenthal Winery and Tasting Room:

The grapes for the wines aren't grown on the beach, but 1,400 feet above the Pacific Ocean. The Tasting Room, however, has ocean views and is the ideal location to relax and watch the sunset while enjoying the local wine.

La Dolce Vita:

Serving some of the finest Northern Italian cuisine in Southern California, La Dolce Vita has been the favorite destination of presidents and celebrities. Every meal is made from scratch, and any dish requested will be made to order.
