The Summer on Sunset project consists of events hosted by individual hotels, bars, nightclubs and restaurants on the 1.5-mile section of Sunset Boulevard known as the Sunset Strip. It follows the collapse in 2014 of the Sunset Strip Music Festival, which suffered losses of more than $1 million. The Summer on Sunset project is a partnership between the Sunset Strip Business Improvement District, West Hollywood Travel + Tourism Board and the City of West Hollywood, as well as local businesses on the Strip.
Through Sept. 3, visitors to the 1.5 mile stretch of Sunset Boulevard known as the Strip will find special discounts at hotels there and also will discover special events at bars and restaurants..
“The Sunset Strip has always been a hub of creativity – free-flowing with music, dining, dancing and shopping – creating a kind of endless summer vibe for those who join the celebration,” said Tom Kiely, president and CEO of West Hollywood Travel + Tourism Board. “It’s both trendsetting and transcendent of all fads, making it the ideal spot for anyone and everyone to come as they are and be a part of this world-famous culture.”
