With movie and film studios right in your backyard, everywhere you go in SoCal oozes sophistication and new money. So where are the celebs?
To Shop- Robertson Blvd.
More popular than both Rodeo Drive and Melrose Ave., Robertson Blvd is a shopping mecca for celebrities, paparazzi who stalk them and star gazers, home to both boutique shops and designer labels. Favorite stores include Curve, which has seen Jennifer Lopez and Hillary Duff grace its walls and Kitson, who has actually sued US Weekly for underexposing them and blurring out their name on bags carried by young starlet’s, asserting that the lack of recognition is costing them $10,000 a week in damages.
For Groceries- Bristol Farms
Named after a street in West Los Angeles, Bristol Farms is a high end gourmet and specialty retailer. With a focus on farm fresh ingredients, healthy living and upscale wine, it’s no surprise that it’s the go to grocery store for Halle Berry, Drew Barrymore and Jennifer Aniston’s everyday essentials and entertaining needs.
To Play with the Pooch- Canyon Dog Park
Even celebs enjoy getting some sun, running the trails and enjoying their four-legged friends. Three acres of unleashed fun, Canyon Dog Park is in the center of the action on Mulholland Drive in Studio City. Famous faces have included William H. Macy and Cameron Diaz.
For a Quick Bite- Newsroom Café
Known for their trendy health food and people watching, this Beverly Hills café across the street from the infamous Ivy seems to permanently have TMZ paparazzo on stake out. They have served Leona Lewis, Mena Suvari and the Red Hot Chili Peppers and most recently were the backdrop of the E!

For Zen- Yoga Works
Just east of Hollywood, but not immune from the hustle and bustle, David Duchovny and Drew Barrymore center themselves at Yoga Works. Founded by a member of White Lotus, a famous Buddhist sanctuary in China, the two-floor studio features a life size Buddha Statue and rope wall.
