Every visitor to L.A. wants the chance to spot their favorite stars as a souvenir from their trip. While it’s almost impossible for regular folks to get tickets to movie premieres, reservations at The Ivy or into the V.I.P. rooms of the hippest Hollywood clubs, we’ve got a list of some of the more accessible places where Tinseltown celebrities hang out.
