Most of the streets of West Hollywood are permit parking so it's very risky to park on the street unless you see a parking meter, or it's Halloween or Gay Pride day. Do not park in the Pavillions grocery store parking lot. Do not park on Sunset Blvd. after midnight. West Hollywood often doesn't ticket illegally parked cars, YOUR CAR WILL BE TOWED AWAY.
It's easy to PARK ONCE and WALK EVERYWHERE in Gay West Hollywood. The 25 Gay Bars, Fun Gay Clubs, 26 Gay Shops, 16 Gay Coffee Shops, and 69 Gay Friendly Restaurants are in walking distance. Find your favorite parking lot, then enjoy a fun evening without any worry about driving.
Here's a SECRET! West Hollywood removes most parking permit restrictions on Halloween, Gay Pride, and sometimes Labor Day and Christmas Day. Come early and park in normally restricted residental areas. (Warning: Check WeHo.org for specifics) Make SURE you are in West Hollywood, not Los Angeles or Beverly Hills. Meters are still enforced.
