1 Soho House
If you're a bigwig in the entertainment industry, you're definitely power lunching at Soho House West Hollywood. This members-only club is endless, opulent and its dark corners the perfect places to conduct secret business deals...while still seeing and being seen.
2 Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel
The Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel is a classic. The Pink Palace recently celebrated its 100th birthday, which is why those who love the feeling of old Hollywood flock here to do their wheeling and dealing over haute cuisine in a timeless setting.
3 The Ivy
If you're about to land a huge deal and you want the world to know about it, head to The Ivy on North Robertson, pick a spot on the outdoor patio and just wait for the paparazzi to arrive. Though this stunning spot looks like the perfect place for a summer garden party, it's also the greatest place in LA to lap up some press attention.
There's something comfortable and classic about Cecconi's decor, which may be why it's become such a beloved lunchtime institution for the Hollywood set. Industry execs also head here for its proximity to the Pacific Design Center, which is just down the street.
5 Barney Greengrass
If you're a Hollywood agent, you're doing lunch at Barney Greengrass, which is conveniently located inside Barney's New York in Beverly Hills. Perhaps this is because WME (William Morris Endeavor), one of the biggest talent agencies in LA, is within a stone's throw of the haute eatery. Or perhaps it's because they know they can shop afterwards. In Hollywood, time is money after all.
