NIGHT + MARKET

Started by chef Kris Yenbamroong, this Weho restaurant describes its vibe as 'California chill meets Bangkok  frenzy', melding old school Thai with 90s Asian-fusion influences. - "Loud + fun vibe, good for groups + great food. This is a perfect 'go-to' spot, with locations in Silverlake + Venice as well."

CAFÉ STELLA

A bustling neighbourhood French bistro boasting a "great location, lovely food + friendly staff." Charlie's tip? "Make sure you grab a cocktail before + stay for a nightcap after, as the bar is well worth visiting."

LOS LEONES CANYON TRAILHEAD

Charlie's favourite spot for hiking is the picturesque Los Leones Trail: - "Set just off the PCH this has a number of different trails to pick from depending on your mood, all with some stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. A place for the locals when all the tourists are walking up Runyon."
