West Hollywood’s best dive bar? WeHo’s best sushi restaurant? Our city’s best barbershop, pet boarding place, Pilates studio? These are among the many categories we included on WEHOville’s Best Of ballot in August. The online voting turnout was great (and monitored by us geeks to make sure we weren’t being trolled — i.e. Putin didn’t vote, only you did).

We published the results in West Hollywood Magazine, our quarterly print publication, which was out last week and which you can find in news racks, restaurants and shops around the city. Today we will publish the second of five overall ballot categories, which include Best Beauty & Grooming, Best Dining, Best Fitness, Best Nightlife and Best Pet Supplies & Services. Congratulations to all of the local businesses who won “Best Of” and to those immediate runner ups. We’ll be back next year with even more business categories. And if you want to find the Best Dining choices, click here. Best of WeHo’s fitness choices? Here you go. And if you’re looking for the best place for a drink or an otherwise entertaining night, here’s what WeHoans are recommending. Remember, they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you want help catching that beholder’s eye, WeHoans suggest going here. http://wp.me/p2Ph78-hIr

  1. Laurel Pet Hospital removed six of my dogs teeth without asking me. There was nothing wrong with the teeth. I took my dog and the teeth to a Vet who specializes in dentistry. She said there was no reason to do it. They charged me $1200.00 to do that. Of course I did not pay them. My Attorney sent them a demand letter seeking damages relief. After 48 of no response we filed the Lawsuit in Superior Court. We settled out of Court. We had over 30 people who would have testified that the Hospital does unnecessary procedures and over charges, including current and former employees. They would not mediate a settlement until during discovery they learned about the witnesses. That was ten years ago, but my skin still crawls with I drive by the place. We have been going to TLC ever since and love it. I think they are the best around.

  2. I was so excited to shop and Collar & Leash when I moved to WH until both times was put off by the staff there. Rude, selective of who they help and who they ignore, poorly lit and junky looking. Healthy Spot may cost more but their customer service is top notch, it’s clean and bright.
