Summer has come and gone, and while fall doesn’t exactly look different here in LA, there’s no denying the feelings of fall. We’ve tapped Charles Hawkins, our concierge extraordinaire at SLS Beverly Hills to let us in on his tips and tricks for the most romantic day in LA!


Start with a romantic breakfast for 2 in the White room of Tres, enjoying mimosa’s, the amazing homemade yogurt’s and more.


After breakfast, get settled into your convertible rental car that the concierge has waiting for you on the valet drive with pre-programmed destinations for the day.


First stop will be Van Cleef & Arpel jewelry where Patrick Levart will assist you in purchasing a new ring or bauble to enjoy!


After a leisure stroll along Rodeo Drive, head over to LACMA to view the Chris Burden designed Urban Light sculpture for an iconic photo op!


Before heading West, stop at Joan’s on Third to pick up items for your private picnic. Put the top down and head for Venice where you will take a private gondola ride around the canal’s while enjoying your picnic on the water.


Once you’re ready for an afternoon dessert, try one of the amazing selections at N’ice Cream & Gelato on Abbot Kinney Blvd.


After a stroll along Abbot Kinney Blvd, it’s time to head back to the hotel for a couples massage at Ciel Spa.


Once you’re nice and relaxed and you’ve enjoyed a nap, it will be time for dinner under the stars at Il Cielo, the most romantic restaurant in the area. Our hotel house car will transport you so you may enjoy that special bottle of wine that has been pre-ordered with Pasqual, the owner of Il Cielo.


Top off the evening with drinks in Bar Centro at The Bazaar by José Andrés. The cocktails are to die for!
