Royal/T is a playful collision of spaces - cafe/shop/art space- presented in stunning fusion. An eclectic mix of retail and contemporary art re-imagined in the surrounds of LA's first Japanese-style cosplay cafe...if they say so themselves. Influenced by the traditions of Tokyo’s Akihabara district, Royal/T servers dress in playful maid uniforms while serving a menu fusing Japanese comfort food with a fresh California twist. Alongside the café, the inaugural exhibition 'Just Love Me' examines cuteness in contemporary art with works by Takashi Murakami among other internationally renowned artists. Loves it. Grown Men? Switch it up a bit, your lady-love will reward you. :) Eat, shop and be enlightened. After the visit, rent out the space. Located in the flourishing neighborhood of Culver City, Royal/T is a 10,000 square foot art space, cafe and retail store. With spectacular architecture and Susan Hancock's playful and sophisticated art collection as a backdrop, Royal/T is a celebration of space that offers a truly dramatic and unique setting for parties and events.

Nightclub veterans Danny B and David Stratton's goal to create a green nightspot that minimizes its impact on the environment has found a natural home in the middle of L.A.'s coolest club stretch. Angelenos don't seem to mind that Tokio Lounge was gutted to build this eco-friendly space from the ground up, and Planet Green has already put in their stake by documenting the entire transformation for an Adrian Grenier-hosted episode of "Alter Eco." But why watch on TV what you can visit in real life? Proving that energy-efficient design doesn't mean style-deficient, the spacious lounge has everything from a multi-colored LED lighting system to recycled steel air pressure toilets and, um, waterless urinals.
Ecco Ultra Lounge is open Wed-Sun 7 pm-2 am and is located at 1640 N Cahuenga Blvd in Hollywood. Call (323) 464-2065 or click the title link for more info.
Just a stumble from the beach in Santa Monica, this wine bar and lounge is perfect for conversation, a good glass of vino and small plate appetizers. Cushy sectional sofas fill the room. But it's the candlelit back bar, with sherbert-colored stools, that's the best place to see all the action unfold. Order a drink at the bar or mix and mingle while inserting pre-paid cards into one of the state-of-the-art wine dispensers that line the wall. Each machine delivers the perfect two-ounce taste from a variety of premium red and white wines. Italian small plates, Kobe beef sliders, cheese and charcuterie samplers, thin crust pizzas, and tuna tartar, can be ordered for a quick bite. Salute Wine Bar is located at 2435 Main Street in Santa Monica. Hours are Tue-Thu 5:30pm-12am, Fri-Sat 5:30pm-1am. Call (310) 450-3434 or click the title link for more info. ♥ Kan

Mike's Deli has been around for quite some time, but I just got hip to it a couple of years ago. They have a great selection of fine meats and cheeses, at grocery store prices, and an efficient operation. Mike's deli doesn't try to do anything too fancy to convince you its a "New York" deli, they just bring a sandwich that is a full meal in itself. Pastrami on Rye, hot is excellent. Mike's Deli is located at 4859 W Slauson Ave in Los Angeles. Call ahead to place your order. The lines can be pretty long. (323) 298-5960. I think I may get a sandwich on the way home... Ciao!

Luckyfish brings a contemporary spin on the classic Kaiten Sushi that has been in existence since the early 60's in Japan. Katien Sushi is sushi served on a moving conveyor belt that passes by both the kitchen and by all seats, within the restaurant. Guests determine exactly when and how much they eat! Hot food items may be ordered either directly from the Chefs or Servers. I was a bit concerned about the freshness of the food, but I was pleased to find out that the belt automatically discharges any plate that has been rotating for longer than 60 minutes. Menu highlights include traditional sushi, sashimi and rolls, and dishes like seven-pepper calamari, rock shrimp tempura, and seabass teriyaki. Luckyfish is located at 338 N Canon Drive in Beverly Hills and is open daily from 11:30am-10pm for dine-in, carry out, or delivery. Call (424) 354-3451 or click the title link for more info (The website is quite entertaining). Enjoy! Check out this video courtesy of CitySearch:
It's a new year and a new 6350 Hollywood Blvd, filled with stunning chandeliers, jet-setters and eye-candy. Loves it. The latest addition to the celebrity-owned restaurant scene is Eva Longoria Parker’s Beso. Sit back in the crocodile booths and black leather oversized dining chairs as Eva’s partner, celebrity chef Todd English, creates Latin dishes from the TV star’s childhood (barbacoa sliders and table side artichoke guacamole). After noshing, head upstairs to Kiss Lounge, where smitten couples OR singles can relax in red leather banquettes and sip cocktails from the funky drink choices. If the sexy red lighting isn’t romantic enough, there's yet another incognito stripper pole...in the middle of the *ahem* quaint dance floor. Check it out! In-Style has other details.... (Note* all Hollywood rules apply for this place). ~Candice
