If you’re coming to or through Los Angeles add The Hudson to your list of stops. It’s a tiny hotspot nestled in the heart of WeHo that is a true gem. There is so much that I’ve come to love about this place and let me tell you that the reasonable prices are only the tip of the iceberg!
Dining in LA is quite the experience. It can feel like a small town but the truth is every few months there’s a new establishment opening up. This makes for a constant stream of variety which is certainly the spice of life. Moreover, depending on mood as well as budget there is a little something for everyone. Swanky bars to hidden “secret” speakeasy type eateries/bars, LA is made to fit a wide plethora of vibes.
For instance, I recently had the pleasure of dining with the Editor of 1966 Magazine, Arianne Suggs, at The Hudson. Inside you will find typical LA flair… posh, exclusive yet met with a relaxed, casual essence. Host and hostesses seat you immediately with water being summoned to the table at once.

I’m going to share a tip with you now. If you want to get in, especially during the busy weekend it’s imperative that you make a reservation. I’ve called on some occasions and they were already booked. Therefore, definitely call ahead to ensure you’re not wasting your time and claim yourself a table. If not you have a high probability of being turned away right at the door.
Now let’s get to the fun part… Food! The Hudson menu is very well laid out. Starters and main course items are listed on the front and drinks are printed on the back. The prices are fair with some entrees starting at just $13! Drinks will run you a little extra depending on what you desire. You will find a whole section of specialty drinks for $16. Try the “Drink That Hasn’t Been Named Yet.” It literally tastes as exciting as it sounds.
Nevertheless, the food is delicious! Plus, if you are watching your waistline or have a special diet this is the perfect place for you! The Hudson offers a large array of vegan as well as gluten-free options. I enjoyed the Hudson Brown Rice with Chicken, Caesar Salad, and Garlic Fries. So healthy, so tasty and the presentation of the dishes was well executed.
The interior decor of The Hudson has a vintage yet modern feel simultaneously. Each table is adorned with chic place settings, lit candles as well as a small glass with fresh flowers. Everything is high-end without seeming stuffy.
Lastly, besides the DJ and fun ambiance music that causes you to sway to the beat subconsciously (honestly you will want the soundtrack). There is an old school photo booth that provides plenty of good times and funny moments. For just $3 (cash or credit cards accepted) and your professional modeling skills, you can have a nice token and keepsake to take home. Or at the very least, an awesome post for Instagram. All in all The Hudson is a cool place to dine, converse with friends, relax and just enjoy the sweet life.
