West Hollywood’s borders are as unique as the city itself, but you just know when you’re in the actual neighborhood. On the architecture front, there are iconic structures such as the Schindler House, Hart House, and Colonial House, along with historical apartment buildings (Villa D’Este, the Andalusia, La Ronda, and Edward Fickett’s Ship’s Bow) in a variety of ornate styles that housed Hollywood starlets, writers, and socialites back in the day. West Hollywood is still home to stars of the big and small screens and has a thriving LGBT community (the gay bars are primarily on Santa Monica Boulevard, although North Robertson’s The Abbey is the most famous one).

WeHo is where you’ll find the Pacific Design Center (PDC), a 1.6 million square-foot campus featuring nearly 100 showroom brands, representing 2,200 product lines.
