Hyde Sunset

The granddaddy of Hollywood club culture, this legendary spot has been around since the early 2000s, when the likes of Paris, Lindsay, and the cast of The Hills turned the Sunset Strip hideout into one of the world’s most exclusive clubs. Unfortunately, that was a long time ago, and Hyde Sunset today—in a new location down the street—is a hollowed out shell of its former self and barely even a club or a restaurant. Even after 10pm the room is empty, making dinner feel like those episodes of The Bachelor when contestants are forced to have dates inside rented out restaurants. We could deep dive into the food, but all you need to know is there’s a $42 chicken parm that comes out as sliced pizza. In the words of Kenny Rogers, “You gotta know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em,” and for Hyde, it’s time to fold.
