Short answer: 372, more per capita than in nearby cities, 97% of them graded “A”

|

West Hollywood has 372 restaurants and bars. That’s our count from an inspection list published by the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health. It includes restaurant-like parts of grocery stores, such as bakeries. They’re all labeled “restaurants” in the County’s list. We’ll call them “restaurants/bars.”


Restaurants/bars by size

The County puts each restaurant/bar into one of four size categories. A third of West Hollywood’s restaurants/bars have 30 seats or less. About 10% of restaurants/bars have more than 150 seats. If we were counting seats, those restaurants/bars would represent much more than 10%.

Restaurants/bars per capita

West Hollywood has 104 restaurants/bars for each 10,000 residents. Beverly Hills has almost as many (101 per 10,000 residents) and Culver City isn’t far behind with 95. Santa Monica has fewer (84). The numbers for Burbank (57) and Los Angeles (36) are much lower.

Note: The numbers for Los Angeles include restaurants/bars for which the listed “city” is a Los Angeles neighborhood, such as Hollywood. Sources: County of Los Angeles, Department of Public Health; California Department of Finance population estimates; our analysis.


Restaurants/bars per square mile

West Hollywood has almost 200 restaurants/bars per square mile, more than any nearby city. Santa Monica is next with 93, less than half as many.

Note: Same as above. Sources: County of Los Angeles, Department of Public Health; Wikipedia; our analysis.


Restaurant/bar grades

The Department of Public Health gives letter grades to restaurants/bars based on inspections. Among all of the restaurants/bars they’ve inspected, 95% currently have an A. That is also the percentage of Los Angeles restaurants/bars with an A.

In West Hollywood, even more restaurants/bars (97%) have earned an A. It’s the same in Santa Monica and slightly higher in Beverly Hills, Burbank, and Culver City.

Note: Same as above. Sources: County of Los Angeles, Department of Public Health; our analysis.
