Summer Sunsets On The Hollywood Hills

Escape the fast pace of city living head to the hills for a brief getaway.


The hustle and bustle of our busy life’s in the Los Feliz and Los Angeles area can make it is easy to forget that the nature and beauty of the Hollywood Hills is nearby and awaiting our arrival.  One perfect place to enjoy the view of the city’s skyline is at Barnsdall Art Park who proudly hosts a series of summer events. 

On Friday nights through the end of August you can head up to Frank Lloyd Wrights exquisite Hollyhock House and partake in the 2013 Summer Wine Tasting.  The Hollyhock House is currently closed for renovation, but its exterior is a stunning example of Wrights signature style and the House grounds are open for you to roam and enjoy.  You and your guests can relax in the gated gardens on the west lawn, mingle with other guests, or bring a blanket and have a romantic picnic. 

The tasting is hosted by local boutique winery Silverlake Wine and is held at sunset so you can enjoy the spectacular view from the hills.  Tickets are $25 per person and the tasting runs from 5:30pm-830pm.  Be sure to purchase your tickets in advance because this popular event fills up quickly.  If you arrive to the tasting prior to 5p you can take a tour of the Municipal Art Gallery.

For more summer fun and more family friendly selections head to Barnsdall Art Park for their Wednesday Farmers Market that is held from 12p-6p through the end of December and check their adult or youth art class schedule.
