Silent night…Holly night…
Forget the silent part. If you are wondering how to get around Hollywood to enjoy the pumping night scene without having to fork out lots of money for cab fare after cab fare, all you need to know that it isn’t a problem in Hollywood thanks to the Holly Trolley.
The Holley Trolley is a public transportation run by the LA Department of Tourism (LADOT). The Holly Trolley is special in several ways:
- It runs only at night.
- Its route takes you through the most popular night clubs.
- Tokens (fare pass) can be bought at bar, night clubs, and restaurants.
- Its very distinct orange picturesque look.
So if you want to get to the Kodak Theater from Capitol Records without paying $4 for a cab then just hop on the Holly Trolley for a wholly wonderful time at Hollywood.

Want to know where all the prettiest girls, models, and aspiring actresses hang out? It’s the
Garden of Eden (LaBrea and Hollywood), one of Hollywood’s best clubs — and one of the hardest to get into. Owned by the Mood creator, has a very picky doorman; girls will usually get in within 15-20 minutes — less if you’re gorgeous — while the guys wait for an hour at least. Tip: wear black. The crowd consists mainly of twenty-somethings. Entrance fee is $15-25 for entrance. 7080 Hollywood Blvd (at LaBrea). (323) 465-3336.
Treat yourself like a star the next time you’re in Hollywood at the Estee Lauder Spa. it’s got amazing beauty treatments including anti-aging facials and scrubs to release that natural glow.
