The Bel Age Hotel from “Beverly Hills, 90210″

Feb 9th, 2015 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

Ah, change.  It’s one of my least favorite things, especially when it comes to filming locations.  So I was devastated when the Wyndham Bel Age Hotel, one of the most prominent locations from Beverly Hills, 90210, closed in 2007 to undergo a huge renovation and was renamed The London West Hollywood.  I had been to the Bel Age prior to its closure, but failed to take any photographs of the place.  I was so incredibly excited to be there that the visit is seared into [...]



Hyatt Westlake Plaza from “The Karate Kid”

Jan 14th, 2015 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

2014 was definitely the year of The Karate Kid.  Not only did the flick turn thirty, but two of its missing locations were finally found – Mr. Miyagi’s house, which I blogged about here, and the fictional Encino Oaks Country Club, which, as it turns out, was actually the Hyatt Westlake Plaza hotel in Thousand Oaks.  The latter was only brought to my attention recently thanks to this June LA Weekly article.  So while I was in the area one (very rainy) day a couple [...]



Malibu Café at Calamigos Ranch

Aug 11th, 2014 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

The Grim Cheaper and I recently headed out to the ‘Bu to grab a bite to eat at the Malibu Café at Calamigos Ranch and walked away with not only a new favorite restaurant, but an addition to my Must-Stalk List.  Mike, from MovieShotsLA, had told me about Calamigos Ranch years ago because of its appearance in a couple of Beverly Hills, 90210 episodes.  And though it took me a while to stalk the place, it was definitely worth the wait.

Calamigos Ranch was founded in [...]



The Donna Martin Graduates Protest Site

Mar 28th, 2014 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

As big of a Beverly Hills, 90210 fan as I am, it will probably come as a shock to learn that up until recently I had yet to stalk the spot where one of the show’s most iconic moments was filmed – Burbank City Hall, aka the Donna Martin Graduates protest site from the Season 3 episode titled “Something in the Air.”  So, since I was in the area recently stalking The Wonder Years houses (you can read those posts here and here), I decided [...]



The Infamous Ray Pruit Stairs

Jan 28th, 2014 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

Since moving to the desert last January (I cannot believe it has been a year!), I have wanted to revisit Rancho Las Palmas, the sprawling Rancho Mirage resort where Ray Pruit (Jamie Walters) pushed girlfriend Donna Martin (Tori Spelling) down a flight of stairs in the Season 5 episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 titled “P.S. I Love You: Part II.”  I originally stalked and blogged about the location back in September 2008, but, because the hotel has 120 sets of identical stairs, at the time [...]



Alvarado Street School from “Beverly Hills, 90210″

Dec 24th, 2013 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

For my final holiday post of 2013, I thought I would blog about a locale from my favorite television series of all time, Beverly Hills, 90210.  Last September, I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to Culver City to stalk Playa del Rey Elementary School, which masqueraded as Alvarado Street School, where Brenda Walsh (my girl Shannen Doherty), Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth), Dylan McKay (Luke Perry), and the rest of the West Beverly gang handed out gifts to needy children in the Season 3 Yuletide-themed episode [...]



My Day on the Set of “90210″

May 16th, 2013 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago in my post about the Hideaway Saloon (which you can read here), I was devastated to learn of the cancellation of fave show 90210 – especially being that the cast and crew were informed of said cancellation while in the midst of shooting what was to be the (most-likely cliffhanger-ish) Season 5 finale. Thankfully though, the script was rewritten mid-shoot and the series given the proper sendoff that it deserved, with (spoiler alert!) Liam Court (my man [...]



The Hideaway Saloon from “90210″

Apr 18th, 2013 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

While watching the Season 5 episode of 90210 titled “Misery Loves Company” a few months back, I became just a wee bit mesmerized by the Hideaway, the biker bar where Naomi Clark (AnnaLynne McCord) and Adrianna Tate-Duncan (Jessica Lowndes) tried to track down Naomi’s lost wedding ring.  The series’ fabulous costume designer, Kime Buzzelli, had posted pictures of the site on her Instagram page (@kbuzzy), so I commented asking for its real name (for whatever reason, I had incorrectly assumed that the name shown in [...]



Shannen Doherty’s Former Mulholland Drive Rental

Apr 5th, 2013 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

Another locale that I found thanks to Hollywood Death and Scandal Sites, the fabulous book written by my buddy E.J. of The Movieland Directory, was the house at 13459 Mulholland Drive that was once rented by my girl Shannen Doherty and that was also the location of her ill-fated 1993 nuptials to Ashley Hamilton, son of actor George Hamilton.  Well, believe you me, as soon as I read the words “Shannen Doherty”, I immediately added the address to my To-Stalk list and dragged the Grim [...]



The O’Neill House from "Beverly Hills, 90210"

Mar 27th, 2013 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

While perusing the article “The Ultimate Guide to Hidden L.A.” in the February 2013 issue of Los Angeles Magazine, I came across a blurb about the O’Neill House in Beverly Hills – one of Southern California’s most unique residences – and recognized the place immediately.  I had seen the property featured in a production a year or so prior, became mesmerized by its whimsical architecture and immediately set about tracking it down, which I did fairly quickly.  For the life of me, though, I now [...]
