West Hollywood, Los Angeles –
A line of waiting valets and an ever-present group of paparazzi greet guests at BOA Steakhouse, one of the Sunset Strip’s trendiest restaurants popular with an upscale clientele of Hollywood execs and A-listers.
A bland façade belies the luxurious yet ultramodern décor of the venue’s six distinct areas, all decked out in a dizzying array of unusual design details that pull double duty as conversation pieces.
The bustling lounge inside features a red granite bar and low leather couches where showbiz types gather to see and be seen, as recognizable faces in need of more privacy slip through the shimmery steel-rod curtain to the secluded club room, where they can relax in front of the flat-screen TV or flip over a lacquered table to reveal a backgammon board.
Moneyed social butterflies gravitate to an outdoor lounge area to huddle by the fireplace with their expensive cocktails, while celebs, power lunchers, and Sunday brunchers escape to the semicircle booths in the spacious enclosed patio with its stunning illuminated glass columns.
Guests who don’t mind being the center of attention can settle into a roomy booth in the smaller dining room, where floor-to-ceiling windows offer a view of the shutterbugs lurking out on Sunset Boulevard
A feast for the eyes as well as the palate, BOA is a one-of-a-kind restaurant for those who appreciate an ambiance as succulent as the steaks.
Agents, executives, A-list entertainers, and entrepreneurs, 20s to 50s.

Upscale casual to dressy: button-downs, blazers, or suits for men, though vintage sneakers and fashionable t-shirts are passable; dresses and heels or trendy jeans and stylish tops for women.
Any night for a great scene, though Fridays and Saturdays are particularly good and bring in a big moneyed crowd.
