Tucked neatly away in Pacific Palisades on a spread of land surrounded by towers of Eucalyptus sits a staple of Westside weekend recreation. On Saturdays and Sundays, from May until the end of September, the Will Rogers Polo Club gathers for competitive exhibition at Will Rogers State Historic Park.

The small, leisurely crowd could best be described as a glorified picnic.

Unseen LA: Going To The Batcaves

Los Angeles Batcave Bronson Canyon 1

Every time I’ve gone for a hike in Bronson Canyon, I always head straight and up the hill toward the Hollywood sign or Griffith Park joining ridge walk. There is some path that turns right early, before you even enter the park proper but I have never entertained the thought of going up it. You’d confuse it for some sort of park ranger road since there are some gates blocking it and it clearly is a strip that vehicles frequently travel: it doesn’t actually seem like a trail.

Well, it is—and it’s a special one. As many locals know, Bronson Canyon is home to the original Batcave and that early trail offshoot leads to it. It is perhaps one of the easiest hikes in town and the payoff is pretty extraordinary regardless of your thoughts on the superhero or Hollywood: it’s a special little destination that easily wows.

Unseen LA: Excellent Dining In The Roosevelt

Unseen LA Excellent Dining In The Roosevelt

Most Angelenos hear the words “Hollywood And Highland” and cringe. The three words, often described as Los Angeles’ Times Square, bring forth images of confused tourists and suburban clubbers hoping to get lucky and traffic, traffic, and more traffic. If there isn’t a movie premiere, there is a concert happening. If one lane isn’t blocked off for construction, the entire intersection is at a standstill as a result of too many pedestrians storming the street. The place is generally considered to be a clusterfuck—and you would think that nowhere in a five block radius of the area would be worth your time…especially to eat!

With the exception of legendary dive Power House and culinary classic Musso & Frank, locals have little reason to venture through this urban bog unless they are doing their best to be an LA tour guide by bringing parents, inlaws, siblings, friends, etc. to Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Hidden in front of everyone, nearly on the same block as this LA headache, is Hollywood Roosevelt, a historic local hotel now overseen by Thompson Hotels. The space is very old Hollywood and usually misunderstood by tourists, who walk in thinking it may be as gaudy an attraction as the El Capitan and “Cabo Wabo Cantina,” and is avoided by locals because of the area’s reputation. But should it really be treated this way? We have a reason for you to weather the area for drinks, dinner, and more.
