Runyon Canyon

Rivalled with Paul Smith’s pink wall and the Santa Monica pier for the most Instagrammed image of Los Angeles is the view from the Runyon Canyon hike. Downtown is spread out in front of you (when it’s not concealed in smog) and the Hollywood sit above, just close enough for you to capture it on camera. Seasoned travellers will know that a hike to the notorious Hollywood sign is the only way to cure jet-lag and those eager to celebrity spot won’t be disappointed as you repeatedly sight what’s-his/her-name-again? and their dog.

Shapehouse

It’s certainly not the most extreme of novelty exercise regimes to come out of LA, but it’s definitely one we’re happy to get in bed with. Snuggle into a heated sleeping bag, switch on your favourite Netflix series and sweat out up to 800 calories as your body is heated to 70 degrees for a whole hour. Selena Gomez is a fan.

Rehab Wellness

When you’re feeling under the weather you’d probably stock up on cold and flu remedies and feel a bit sorry for yourself – but not in LA honey. Pumping yourself full of vitamins from an IV while receiving a heavenly facial is the only way to do pre/post Coachella/Burning Man/Award season.

The Troubadour

On the border of Beverly Hills lies an underground music-led nightclub that has seen everyone from Elton John to Bob Dylan take to the stage. Immortalised in history, both James Taylor and Neil Diamond performed their debut gigs here. The décor is dark, the beer is warm and the crowd is lively, but the sound system is deafening and you’re guaranteed to be head banging with the mixed bag of patrons by the time the chorus kicks in.
