We Love LA & NYC

Metro Red Line

500 S Hill St, Los Angeles, CA 90013

"Sitting on the Red Line reminds me of NYC. No other place comes close to the awesomeness of NYC, but the Red Line tends to have the same smell and awkwardness of some NYC subs!" -- Dustin Ma

Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel

7000 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028

"The lobby of the Roosevelt hotel. It has fantastic architecture similar to a great many old and amazing buildings in NYC. I could spend days there." -- Kali Chan


6268 Sunset Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028

"The Bowery is a NY-esque bar. Has a great scene with no stress and no attitude." -- Scott Schneider

Bottega Louie Restaurant And Gourmet Market

700 S. Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90017

"Bottega Louie reminds me of NYC. It's got such a classy layout but has a melting pot of people that are eating there. Reminds me of being in NY!" -- Michele Serafini Nilsen "Bottega Louie. Total NYC vibe. Almost feels like I'm sitting in Midtown Manhattan." -- Cari Hah

Downtown Los Angeles

Bordered by the 101 Frwy, 10 Frwy and 110 Frwy, Los Angeles, CA 90014

"Definitely Downtown around LA Live. Between the lights, tall buildings and hot dog carts, one might possibly feel for a brief second they are in 'the' city. Can you tell I'm partial to NY? It will always be home to me." -- Jessica Caviness

The Varnish

118 E 6th St, Los Angeles, CA 90014

"The Varnish, since their handmade, artisanal cocktails are created by the same guys behind NY's Milk & Honey. But keep it on the DL. I've already said too much." -- Kika Davis

The Edison

108 West 2nd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012

"To me, The Edison is New York because you would never expect to find what you do on the inside, based on the outer appearance of the spot , as is most of NY." -- Chiara Greene

St Nick's

8450 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90048

"St. Nick's in LA, because the crowd is actually from the East Coast!" -- Olga Strickland

Village Pizzeria

131 N Larchmont Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90004

"Village Pizzeria on Larchmont reminds me of NYC because the owner is from New York and the pizza tastes the closest to New York pizza." -- Stephanie Lynn Erney
