Award-winning actress and celebrity lifestyle guru Gwyneth Paltrow is no stranger to a life of luxury. The mega-star has homes all over the world, including two in Southern California, with stunning features like a wood-burning pizza oven, yoga studio and the most breathtaking ocean views.
Paltrow does luxurious living so well that she has established the very popular goop website where she recently published a list of city guides for Los Angeles, which includes recommendations for hotels, activities, restaurants and even books. The itineraries are broken down by personality type, but each list is curated for strictly A-list luxury.
Compiled here is a breakdown of all the ways to a Gwyneth day in lovely Los Angeles:
This itinerary is catered to those who want to experience classic, vintage Hollywood. Paltrow recommends staying at the very chic Hotel Bel-Air, a chalet that has played host icons like Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Prince Charles and Richard Nixon.
To eat, the uber-exclusive, six-table Chi SPACCA is a delectable little steak house with a healthy California spin to the menu. No vintage Hollywood experience would be complete without a stiff cocktail. Paltrow points to the Musso & Frank Grill, a hot-spot where literary greats like F. Scott Fitzgerald and Aldous Huxley downed martinis in well-worn leather banquets.
Arts & Architecture
With a burgeoning art scene and rich history of style and glamour, Los Angeles is a treasure trove of architectural wonder. Paltrow recommends staying at the old-world Chateau Marmont, a historic landmark of the Hollywood A-list.
Republique is a restaurant that occupies the former studio of Charlie Chaplin and features a menu crafted by a former chef of the foodie-mecca known as El Bulli. Paltrow also recommends touring the modern-style Eames House, the home and studio of design greats Charles and Ray Eames.
Curated for a total cleansing of the mind and body, this itinerary is features plenty of outdoor activities like yoga and hikes up to Inspiration Point and Paseo Miramar.For the upscale vegan, Crossroads on Melrose is a sumptuous bistro where dishes are as creative as they are delicious.
For a truly unique experience, Paltrow recommends stopping in at Zulu Tattoo, where the ink is vegan and eco-friendly. Artists work intently with clients to bring the inward spirit out with a sacred marking of the skin.
Hipster Los Angeles
East Los Angeles neighborhoods like Los Feliz are home base for this trend-setting crowd. Paltrow’s list of the most noteworthy of hipster hangouts starts with the Ace Hotel. This recently remodeled, 1920’s era building has transformed into a palace featuring hotel rooms, a popular restaurant and a coffee bar.
Up in the Silver Lake hills, a 1940s house is the new space for Barbrix, a tapas restaurant where seats at the kitchen counter will afford the diner a view of the kitchen and star chef, Don Dickman.
For those wanting to really embody the Los Angeles state of mind, Paltrow recommends checking out Skylight Books, a neighborhood bookshop with a sharp-witted staff, a shop cat and a great collection to choose from.
