Embassy Suites by Hilton - Glendale
If you'd like to stay at our hotel, near the reception venue, please book a room at the Embassy Suites by Hilton - Glendale.
Instead of the usual, predictable club, go to a Houston Hospitality (HH) speakeasy-style bar.
Almost every HH bar is defined by a secret entrance, excellent live music, some sort of live show, and an insanely attractive clientele. Take a gander at "No Vacancy" to start off, as it probably best defines what Houston Hospitality stands for (and don't spoil the entrance!).
Hiking in Griffith Park
For real, Griffith Park is so gigantic that you don't need to see the Hollywood sign to have a great time. Also, check out the Wisdom Tree and go to the Griffith Observatory for great views of Los Angeles.
Instead of the Hollywood Bowl or the Greek Theatre...
LA is undeniably a music town, and the city is filled with incredible spots to catch live acts. But instead of relying on one of the huge venues, consider some of the smaller local spots full of LA history, like the Kibitz Room (where Guns N’ Roses and the Chili Peppers got their start) or even Rainbow Bar & Grill (where legends like Elvis and Lemmy would hang). You should also consider one of the many amazing venues with free music nights where you can catch up-and-coming stars and sometimes surprise appearances from big names.
You can even split the difference between huge & tiny venues with excellent, intimate shows at the Troubadour or the Teragram Ballroom.
