Studio City is divided into two main parts: the bustling strip of Ventura Boulevard with its restaurants and shops and the northern section with Universal Studios Hollywood.

Named after the CBS Studio Center built in 1927, Studio City’s film industry continues to thrive at Universal Studios. Movies are frequently shot in the park’s back lot and guests have the opportunity to tour the area via tram.

Adjacent to the theme park is Universal Citywalk, a lively entertainment district. The area features restaurants like the Karl Strauss Brewing Company and Saddle Ranch Chop House, the Howling Moon piano bar and the 5 Towers stage for outdoor music. While the original CBS Studios still operates as a set, show tapings and tours take place at the studio’s Beverly Hills location.
