Night // Clubs
Imbibe colorful cocktails while gazing upon the city (and each other). Start on the roof at Hard Rock’s Float, W’s Beach, Ivy Nightclub at Andaz or Siren at Sè—then move on to a sexy club to shake your thing. Check out the new Fluxx, Voyeur or 207.
Dinner // Nobu
This bustling restaurant in the Hard Rock lives up to Nobu
’s reputation. Your best bet? Hand over your decisions to the sushi chef and sit back to see what ends up on your table.
Afternoon // Shopping
If your taste runs to Max Mara, Tory Burch and Missoni, and your pulse rises at the site of Henri Bendel, head to the Fashion Valley
outdoor mall in Mission Valley. If it’s a one-of-a-kind vintage dress you’re after, check out Flashbacks in Hillcrest
Brunch // Hash House a Go Go
Serving “twisted farm food” for 10 years, Hash House
offers inventive takes on brunch favorites—in enormous portions. But be ready to wait.
Where to Stay // Hard Rock Hotel
Party like a rock star at this swank hotel, which boasts a Black Eyed Peas-designed suite, hushed spa to escape the paparazzi, a rooftop pool and the perfect downtown location.
If you’re visiting on a Sunday in summer, you won’t be able to miss the hotel’s Intervention party, which has drawn thousands to the hotel’s rooftop bar, Float, to revel in the bikini views and thumping beats of celebrity DJs.
