The Best of the West, according to West Hollywood Rock Musician, Kat Meoz.
LA native, Kat Meoz, loves living in West Hollywood, where it’s warm and sunny year round and everyone walks to hear the best jams and feast on great grub. “Rock n’ roll is an attitude, and this town has forever embraced it,” the singer boasts.
Where to stay
Meoz credits the Sunset Marquis as the place to stay for old Hollywood glamour, killer rooftop views, and a history lesson into the rock icons that used to frequent its halls. Situated between Sunset and Santa Monica Boulevards, the location hardly gets any better to see and be seen.

Get your zen on
For those looking to zen out, head to The Face Place for what Meoz deems is “the best rejuvenating and relaxing facial!” A 45 year old institution, the esteemed facialists at this Santa Monica Blvd sanctuary are celebrated for their “Signature” that reportedly maintains healthy and youthful skin.
Where to stop for lunch
Grab a nosh on healthy lunch fare at Urth Caffe on Melrose Ave, and try not to stare at the various celebrity diners. Or, stop by Gracias Madre just down the street for spectacular plant-based Mexican dishes in an earthy atmosphere.

Don’t forget to Instagram
As you galavant on foot throughout WeHo (like everyone else), be sure and capture one of the many Instagram-able rainbow crosswalks for the feed. “I’d also make sure to attend Drag Bingo at Hamburger Mary’s on Santa Monica one Wednesday night for hilarity and solid entertainment,” she insists.

Where to get buzzed
Stop in for a caffeine pick-me-up at Melrose Ave’s light-filled Zinque, and/or catch a sunset over drinks at the E.P & L.P rooftop lounge on La Cienega Blvd for breathtaking views of the city.
Where to go for dinner
Dinner at Craig’s on Melrose is a treat (and yet another popular celebrity hangout), featuring American dishes like Grilled Artichokes and Vegan Cheeseburgers. “It’s also a beautiful space to dine in,” the singer dishes.
All about the music
But before you leave this vibrant Los Angeles neighborhood, you absolutely must catch a live music show. Three blocks away from dinner at Craig’s, The Troubadour is a favorite West Hollywood venue of the singer’s and anyone else who’s walked through their iconic Santa Monica Blvd doors. “Everyone from Elton John to newer Indie talent has performed there. It’s truly iconic, and a WeHo institution.”
