Each year around the Thanksgiving holiday, I feature fellow bloggers, creatives and trailblazers who share the places that they're thankful for in the city, whether it's a restaurant, a swanky lounge or a hole-in-the-wall dive bar.
For 2016, I reached out to three phenomenal ladies living in L.A. -- author Kia Smith, actor Michelle Mink and blogger / music label exec Tina Singleton -- to find out their top recommendations of where we all need to head to next.
Check their responses out below!
"I love the Savoy Entertainment Center in Inglewood, CA! It never let's me down. I love how they show the games during football and basketball season yet can have hip hop or reggae to dance the night away on the weekends. Taco Tuesday has the best food and drink specials and different celebrities come to display their talent on the main stage. It offers inside and outside space and the opportunity to have the best time of your life."

"I highly recommend Yamashiro Hollywood in Hollywood, CA. This restauraunt provides a spectacular view of Los Angeles. The food is great. From appetizers to the entrees and desserts every course is worth ordering. Whether you are sightseeing or just spending a day out on the town, make time for this incredible place."

"My favorite place to have a cocktail and relax is "The Social" located at 23329 Lyons Ave, Santa Clarita, CA 91355. This restaurant/bar is tucked away in a strip mall but it boasts over 100 different martinis. The best bartender is Ashley."
