The Artist’s Best Hollywood Bars | Hg2 PICKS

Taking place in 1920’s Hollywood, silent film The Artist has wowed general public and critics alike, scooping awards at the Cannes Film Festival, Golden Globes, BAFTAs and more.

Focussing on the relationship between silent cinema and its more modern ‘talkie’ version, The Artist is the perfect mix of modern retro – a typical theme running throughout Hollywood, the venerable granddaddy of cinematic creativity.

As a nod to this delectable combination, we give you our own guide to Hollywood bars and clubs – complete with pictures of Hollywood’s nightlife today.
