Neighborhood: Hollywood
Address: 6000 Santa Monica Blvd.

A date in a cemetery sounds totally goth, but not in Los Angeles where all the graves are marked with the names of former superstars and the weather is pretty much always gorgeous. The Hollywood Forever Cemetery takes advantage of their beautiful landscaping, famous deceased residents, and their expanse of space by putting on amazing concerts, showing movies, and having riveting talks. Flanked by gravestones, people come with beer and picnic baskets. Last year, they played The Royal Tenenbaums, The Craft, and had John Waters come to a screening of Cry Baby. James Blake, XX, and The National have all played the cemetery as well. While winter time isn’t always the best when it comes to events to take your first date to, the minute spring and summer rolls around there will be nothing more awesome to take a date to than a place you can sprawl out on a blanket with some California rolls and some cheap rosé and watch a good movie.
