Sushi Park opened nearly two decades ago in a tucked-away corner on the second floor of a nondescript strip mall along the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. It’s an unlikely celebrity hangout, but a scan of paparazzi images shows that the rococo railing in front of the restaurant has become a mainstay of the celebrity press.
Dua Lipa hard launched her relationship with the actor Callum Turner there; Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods stepped out together, unofficially calling an end to their acrimonious feud; Kendall Jenner flaunted her relationship with Bad Bunny; Taylor Swift gathered Zoe Kravitz and Selena Gomez for a girl’s night out. Justin and Hailey Bieber frequent the restaurant, and just last month, Jennifer Lawrence was spotted there when she dined with Emma Stone. Same for Angelina Jolie and her son Pax.
Or, as one commentator quipped on X, formerly known as Twitter: “i’ve seen pictures of this balcony more times than i’ve seen my own father.”
“I think the reason why so many famous people go there is that it’s no-frills,” said the musician, producer, and actor Benny Blanco, who once threw his own birthday party there. “You’re getting a high-end meal, but you’re chillin’. It’s not uptight. It’s really small, and no one’s bothering anybody.”
