Seeing celebrities walking on the streets, shopping or dining while not in front of the camera often brings a feeling of excitement most especially to women who are avid movie and TV fans. In the U.S., Los Angeles in California is one place where these stars can be spotted. Many of them live in or near the area such as Beverly Hills and Hollywood where most studios are located.
Being in Los Angeles, however, does not guarantee you’ll see stars or bump into them just about anywhere. These celebrities value their privacy and don’t normally go out simply to stroll around. They are out in town only when necessary such as to do errands, go to the gym or enjoy a quiet dinner at their favorite restaurant.
If you’re really eager to go star watching in L.A., here are some tips on where you can spot them or even hang out with them.
Drop by celebrity-owned restaurants – Geisha House, Chi, Rokbar and Falcon.
Restaurants in Malibu such as Nobu and Taverna Tony’s are also favorite spots of celebs. On Robertson Boulevard, you can visit The Ivy, Newsroom Café and Michael Richard Patisserie. Stars who have been seen here include Tori Spelling, Paris Hilton, Halle Berry, Jessica Alba and Britney Spears.
At Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel bars, you just might see Lindsay Lohan. The place has a strict doorman, though and the long lines can be frustrating.
Coffee lovers should check out Peet’s Coffee, Starbucks, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf notably on Sunset Plaza and Montana Avenue in Malibu. King’s Road Café on Beverly Boulevard is also recommended.
Toast Café located at 8221 W Third St. is popular among celebs notably during lunchtime. Visit on weekdays and enjoy great salads, sandwiches and cupcakes.
Don’t forget to drop by The Chateau Marmont at 8221 Sunset Blvd, a favorite of stars. The patio is a great place to hang out while star watching here but be sure to order something.
The health buffs can go jogging or walking in the morning in Run Canyon at the Hollywood Hills Park. You just might spot Justin Timberlake, Jessica Beal and Zac Ephron here.
If shopping is your thing, go to Kitson as well as its other branches Kitson Kids and Kitson Men on Robertson Blvd. Fred Segal’s on Melrose Avenue is also a good place to spot a star.
For entertainment, Grauman’s Chinese Theater on Hollywood Blvd is another good place to visit. Best if you are there for a movie premiere and you’ll surely feast your eyes with lots of celebrities.
