About Us

The Purple Passport, a free, taste-making online travel site, features a comprehensive guide to the finest and most fun Los Angeles hotels, restaurants, nightlife spots, spas, shops, and sights. The Los Angeles Times says that The Purple Passport gives you "the no-frills lowdown on what's hip and cool..." Our reviews are frank and unbiased-we never accept compensation for featuring a venue on the site.

Here are some of the many ways you can utilize The Purple Passport's Los Angeles Guide to make planning for the big day a snap:

  • Put together a "Welcome to Los Angeles" packet for out-of-town guests. Aside from wedding activities, visiting guests will also want to experience the best of what Los Angeles has to offer in their spare time. You can offer personalized recommendations by creating your own "Passport" (see below for sample) of favorite spots on the site and then printing and distributing it to guests upon arrival, or linking to it your wedding website.
  • Plan the perfect Bachelor/Bachelorette Party. Having the best restaurants and nightlife venues in one easy online place makes picking great party spots less stressful and a logistical breeze for everyone. By building a personalized Passport and using the "Share" function prior to the event, the planning team can easily collaborate.
  • Find the best spots close to wedding venues. Searching for a place to hold the rehearsal dinner or the morning-after brunch, or the best hotel closest to the ceremony location? Our full-screen mapping function helps you find the best nearby spots-a boon given Los Angeles traffic.

Here is an example of a personalized passport: To get the public URL to link from wedding websites, use the "Email Passport" function, log out of the site, and copy the URL after clicking through the email.
