Mark Hamill’s LA tips

Soon to hit screens in Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi, Mark Hamill, aka Luke Skywalker, spends most of his downtime based in Los Angeles. Here’s a list of some of his favorite hangouts.

 

The big sleep

The Soho Little Beach House, Malibu, is right on the waterfront. It’s nice and quiet with great ambience and fantastic views.

Boyz n the hood

I’m a fan of staying at Soho House’s Bedrooms. They have locations all over the world. The rooms really feel like a home away from home. I’m looking ¬forward to the new hotel that they'll be opening in downtown Los Angeles.

Punch drunk love

Another local favorite of mine is Nobu in Malibu. It also has a beautiful view but sometimes it can get too loud for socializing, which is what makes Soho Little Beach House stand out for me.

A taste of old Hollywood

Musso And Frank opened in 1919. Located in the heart of Hollywood on Hollywood Blvd, there is no better taste of old Hollywood than Musso and Franks. It has maintained both its classic decor as well as its authentic steakhouse menu. You can sit in the same booth where Jack Benny had lunch with his pal George Burns.

Swingers

I recently did an ad campaign with Rag & Bone and fell in love with their clothes. They have been really great to work with and have dressed me for countless events throughout the year. They have stores all over and many in LA, but I tend to visit the location on Melrose.

Laughing matter

I’ve been going to Hi De Ho Comics in Santa Monica for years. I love supporting “Mom and Pop” bookstores since they are disappearing with online shopping becoming more and more popular.

LA story

The Last Bookstore has only been open since 2005 but they have a huge collection of new and used books and records. This bookstore is nothing like you’ve ever seen before. It’s an amazing piece of art that is worth stopping in just to see the famous book tunnel and the “Labyrinth” they’ve created.

Boogie nights

Amoeba Music opened in the 90s in Berkeley, California. They have locations in Berkeley, San Francisco and also Los Angeles. Once again, I am a huge advocate of supporting local businesses. They carry a wide variety of music in various formats, in addition to movies and television shows.

To live and die in LA

Apple Pan opened in 1947. It quickly became a local favorite for their hamburgers and apple pie. While the hamburgers are excellent, I personally love their tuna salad sandwich.
