West Hollywood Night Market
Where we've featured it
Weekends are boring as sh*t right now. You can’t eat out, you can’t see friends, and there are only so many times that you can hike the same canyon and post sunrise pics to your timeline (OK, once). Here’s a suggestion: check out the West Hollywood Night Market. No, I don’t mean the well-known Thai restaurant of the actual same name, this night market is a real one that pops up every weekend next door to Employee’s Only. There’s a variety of vendors selling everything from succulents to excellent wood-fired pizza, plus movies playing on the wall and a surprising sense of normalcy. You can either preorder online or go exploring while you’re there.
Not to be confused with the very famous Thai restaurant of a similar name, this West Hollywood Night Market is a weekend pop-up concept that takes over the parking lot next door to Employees Only on Santa Monica Blvd. It features different vendors selling everything from Filipino rice bowls to wood-fired pizza, but if you’re trying to pull off a quarantine date night, make it easy on yourself, and just get the Date Night Package. For $65, it comes with bottled cocktails for two, handmade bags of pasta and sauce from Orso, cookie dough from Gemini Bakehouse, and even a table plant. And let’s be honest, if a bonus succulent doesn’t get you in the mood, nothing will.
