5. Instead of Hollywood Boulevard: Drinks at the Roosevelt
Skip the hordes of Midwestern tourists and stop by this historic hotel instead. The mixologists at Library Bar craft drinks to taste, Teddy’s keeps you clubbing well into the night, and the women look like extras in Spring Breakers. Plus, the classic Hollywood ambience will make your friends feel like Clark Gable.
Roosevelt Hotel. 7000 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood (323-466-7000)
