Real Bravo-holics love to walk in the footsteps of their favorite reality stars. There’s something glamorous about being in the same spot as the people you watch on TV weekly. Luckily, quite a few Bravo shows are filmed in LA, and they’re easy to get to. As you step foot into each of these Bravo reality show hot spots, you’ll feel a part like you’re on an episode of your favorite show, but minus all drama. Here are 5 spots in L.A. every Bravo fan needs to visit.
1. SUR Restaurant
Location: 606-614 N Robertson Blvd in West Hollywood
SUR Restaurant is arguably the most important Bravo location in LA. Bravo fans first heard about the chic eatery when its grand opening was featured during season 2 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but it rose to fame after becoming the setting of drama and debauchery on Vanderpump Rules. The restaurant’s sexy atmosphere, delicious cocktails, and mouth-watering menu options make it a must-see for Bravo fans looking for a bite to eat. Plus, you’re most likely to run into your favorite reality stars here. James Kennedy still frequently DJs at the restaurant on Tuesday nights and many of his costars come out and support him. You’ll also find cast member Peter Madrigal hard at work managing the restaurant.
Location: 8948 Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood.
After the success of SUR Restaurant, Lisa Vanderpump, and Ken Todd decided it was time to add to their restaurant empire. The pair purchased a space up the block from SUR and transformed it into the garden oasis that is PUMP. Fans have watched the restaurant develop before their eyes, and will remember iconic moments from Vanderpump Rules, like Tom Schwartz walking out on his bartending job during the restaurant’s grand opening, and James Kennedy getting fired from his DJ gig. You’ll be blown away by the restaurant’s beauty. It truly feels like you’re dining in a secret garden!
Location: 8932 Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood
Vanderpump called on two Vanderpump Rules cast members, Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz, to help her open her newest bar and restaurant. The eatery, dubbed TomTom after the iconic duo, has become a beloved hangout for Bravo fans. Both Schwartz and Sandoval are known to stop by the establishment, sometimes joined by costars like Ariana Madix, Katie Maloney, Lala Kent, and Scheana Shay. This bar may be famous, but the drinks are the real stars. Each cocktail on the menu is handcrafted to perfection (we recommend The Stroke of Midnight espresso martini). While you’re there, don’t forget to take your picture in front of the iconic photo of the Toms kissing!
Pro Tip: Fans can easily hit up all of the aforementioned spots in one night. All three bars are within walking distance of one another. Each restaurant has a different menu and theme, so checking them all out is a must.
4. Schwartz & Sandy’s
Location: 1907 N Bronson Ave in Franklin Village.
Schwartz and Sandoval loved owning a bar so much, they decided to open one of their own. Fans are invested in this bar, like the previous ones, because they’ve watched it grow from concept to reality. But, Schwartz and Sandy’s has an even richer history, since it’s contributed to conflict between Tom Schwartz and his soon-to-be ex-wife Katie Maloney Schwartz. Many speculate that the bar’s opening contributed to the couple’s demise since Maloney often butted heads with her ex’s business partner. Additionally, fans were left wondering if the bar would ever open, after the opening was delayed so many times. Luckily, everything worked out.
5. The Altman Brothers Offices
Location: 103 S Robertson Blvd in Beverly Hills
If you need a break from food and drinks after visiting the above restaurants, check out a landmark of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles: The Altman Brothers office. Josh Altman’s no-nonsense attitude and dedication to closing a deal makes him one of the show’s fan favorites. In 2019, Altman and his brother and business partner Matt opened an office for their brokerage in Beverly Hills. While you won’t be able to go inside and tour the office, there is an IG-worthy mural on the side of the building for fans to take pictures in front of. It’s filled with LA landmarks, references to the reality show, and the brothers’ personal lives.
Have fun visiting these Bravo spots! Here’s a detailed look inside Schwartz and Sandy’s to get you excited!
