Hip/Happening Late Night Dining in LA


Foody stopping over in LA for the night. I will be flying in with my girlfriend and we were looking for a good place to stop by and eat.

The catch is we don't get in till about 11PM, so we need a place that is open late. We wanted something trendy that serves some good food. I'll be staying near the airport, but willing to drive to Beverly Hills or wherever I need to go.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

  1. If you don't land until 11, that means you need a restaurant that serves past midnight. I can think only of late-night diners and mexican restaurants (La Cabana) and then there's always Pacific Dining Car. None of these qualify as foodie places.

    Others will have ideas of maybe some late night ethnic, but just know that you're looking at sitting down somewhere about 12:30ish.

    Pacific Dining Car
    1310 W 6th St, Los Angeles, CA 90017

    1. Place Yuu has excellent izakaya fare (& sushi!), with a kitchen open until 12:30AM, sometimes even 1AM. About 15 min. driving time from LAX (at 2300h).

      Place Yuu
      2101 Sawtelle Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025

      1. Don't know about Happening but In N Out Burger on Sepulveda Blvd. one block north from the airport is open till 1am and 1:30am on Fridays and Saturdays.

        1. If you can make to Venice by midnight Gjelina serves until then. Hip and really good food.

          1429 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, CA 90291, USA

            Sorry, I used that word hip. I promise to never use it ever again. Please forgive me.

          2. Well my version of trendy is probably not going to be found in the dictionary under that word but I like the food they serve at the Kettle in Manhattan Beach. Open 24/7/365. Try their Oeufs Pain Perdu.
