Hello West Hollywood! Melrose Avenue we are coming for you with our third West Coast store on December 1.'Opening a store in Los Angeles was always an aim when I started Sweaty Betty in 1998, so to open a third is amazing', reflects Founder & Creative Director Tamara, 'I absolutely love the healthy active lifestyle there'. To celebrate our shop opening, we've rounded up where to sweat, eat and stay in the area. 

Where to Sweat

We love to spin and when we're looking for a great cardio session, Cycle House in The Alfred Alley is our place of choice. You'll find us at Nichelle or Aaron's classes. 

For a workout with a difference, Rise Nation is the place to go - the first 30 minute full body workout, this climbing based workout is designed for serious results and sore muscles.  


A winning combination of beautiful decor and an intense workout, Carrie's Pilates Plus is home to one of our favourite workouts in LA. A mixture of cardio, Pilates and weight training, this class promises a lithe, lean physique in less time than your usual Pilates class.

If you like your yoga with a twist, Playlist Yoga is the place. With classes focused around you guessed it, music this is a dynamic upbeat workout where you match your breath to the movement, and movement to the music. Not your standard yoga class.


Known as 'the Soho House of wellness', Wanderlust is the place to go in West Hollywood for all things meditation and yoga. With three floors, multiple studios and a clean-eating cafe, head here to seriously chill out. 

Were to Eat

Made for Instagrammable moments, Joan's on Third is a speciality food marketplace where you can spend hours. From gourmet foods you won't find anywhere else, to baked goods and a restaurant for celeb-spotting, head here for gourmet groceries. 

Located minutes from our West Hollywood shop, Urth Caffe is where all health-conscious Los Angeles residents head for organic coffee, signature fresh salads and vegan desserts. 

You can't go to California and not eat Mexican food. With a healthier take on the cuisine Gracias Madre offers a plant-based, organic alternative. Tequila optional. 


You can't go to the home of health and wellness without a smoothie pit stop. Our place of choice - Beaming. With a menu filled with superfoods, we love the acai bowls. 

If caffeine is more your thing, try Alfred on Melrose for cool decor and well-trained baristas and a great cup of coffee. 


For an evening meal with a difference, head to E.P. and L.P for delicious asian fusion food followed by cocktails on the rooftop.

The Nice Guy has quickly become a frequented spot for A-list celebs. With its intimate booths, rat pack ambiance, and delicious menu, head here for drinks with friends. 

What to Do

West Hollywood is one of Los Angeles' most popular shopping destinations. Head to Melrose Avenue for edgier, cooler places including Restoration Hardware’s Gallery and LA’s Rag and Bone or try Melrose Place for high-end boutiques from the likes of Oscar de la Renta. 


For a more organic take of Los Angeles head to Runyon Canyon. This 160 acre park lies just 2 blocks from Hollywood Blvd and is known for its scenic trails and stunning views of the Griffith Observatory and the Hollywood sign. 


Few hotels are as famous or as notorious as the Chateau Marmont, for over eighty five years the Chateau has been home to wild parties, secretive trysts and Hollywood legends. Whether you're behaving or not, this hotel located high above Sunset Boulevard is the place to be.
