Who doesn’t love a good celeb spotting? And from Palm Springs to Montauk, there’s been no shortage of beau monde action in our world these last few months. But now that all that breezy summer fun is pretty much behind us, where to go for that particular thrill of knowing that a movie star is breathing the same oxygen as you?
Look no further. Our savvy friends at Gilt City have come up with some great exclusive sporting, dining and primping deals, that might very well also include a little a-list eye candy.

RAO’S LOS ANGELES
The legendary East Harlem original is a regular haunt of Scorcese and Woody Allen – and you might even spot a Leo or a former President (i.e. Clinton) there. Fittingly, since opening in late 2013, the new but old-school-cool (dark woods, red leather banquettes) LA outpost has hosted the likes of Owen Wilson, Sharon Stone, Marisa Tomei and Drew Barrymore. It features the same sprawling wine list, expertly done classic cocktails and legendary homemade pastas. (Try the Beggar Purse ravioli with ricotta, pear, brown butter, dried cranberries and sage).
THE DISTRICT BY HANNAH AN
Upon its opening earlier this year, The District by Hannah An became an instant sensation, serving up life-altering signature Vietnamese dishes like Shaken Beef (Bo Luc Lac), District Wok Lobster and Coriander Crusted Lamb. The stunningly designed space (complete with wall garden and beautiful hanging pendant lamps) has since been populated by the likes of Richard Linklater, Patricia Arquette, Cameron Monaghan and Bella Thorne.
