Coming to Los Angeles? Don't forget to check out some of the lesser known rock star hangouts.

May 7, 2016

Summer is upon us and that means more tourist flooding into Los Angeles in record numbers. Having lived in Los Angeles a better part of twenty years, I have come to learn where I have spotted more rock stars than anywhere. I wanted to share them with you if you are planning on a trip and are hoping to see some famous rockers. I can tell you my experience with rock star sightings have been during the week and not on the weekends. If you are planning a trip to LA these are a not to be missed for your best chance to catch a rock star sighting. 


The Rainbow Bar and Grill 9015 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069 

This legendary hangout  is known for luring 1970s and '80s rockers. Some of the ones I have seen there have been Slash, Lemmy ( now deceased) from Motorhead. If you happen to go, try a Tuesday or Wednesday night the odds will be much better to get a celebrity sighting. Where can they be found? Eating in the dining room. And if a band is in town that you like, don't miss going there at some point, chances are you will see them eating or having a drink the day before their show.























Canters Deli located at 419 N Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036

Canters is open 24 hours and they have had more celebrity sightings they can be counted. Big names like Gun's and Roses have a history with the place. Bono was just recently spotted there at 2:00 a.m. having a sandwich. If you can name them, they have more than likely been there. There is no specific time to go for a "sighting" but again during the week is always better and your chances are always higher.
























The Apple Pan 10801 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064. It is the best burger place in town, they have been there for 70+ years and I have never been in there when a limo has not pulled up to the door and a driver has come in to pick-up to go orders. It's an amazing small little U-shaped counter only burger joint. Bring cash ( no credit cards) Chances are better than most you will spot someone famous. It has been a favorite of Bono, and Howard Stern is a regular when in Los Angeles, not to mention 1/2 of Hollywood celebrities love the place.























Good luck on spotting the rockers when in Los Angeles, and if you do let me know I would love to add your stories. Kris
