Have you ever thought to yourself, “God, I would give anything to run into Beyoncé”, or “If only I had the chance to meet George Clooney”?
Don’t worry, you’re not alone.
We all — whether we’d like to admit it or not — have had day dreams about chance encounters with our favorite famous faces on the streets of New York, or perhaps strolling along the beaches in the French Riveria.
Yet there is no need to ignore those bucket list dreams of yours any longer, because celebrity-spotting is a lot easier than you think.
It seems that some of the top A-listers tend to congregate at the same hangouts, hotspots, and trendy restaurants and bars all over the world; just like we non- celebrity folk have our favorite restaurants and bars where we go with friends, the rich and famous have their go-to spots around the world where they can wine and dine their night (or maybe their afternoon) away.
One of the best places for celeb-spotting is none other than L’Avenue in Paris, France. This is the crème-de-la-crème for some of the most famous stars, so have make sure you have your phone ready and charged to get some selfies with Jay Z or Justin Bieber — whoever floats your boat.
But there are places outside of the city of love that attract movie stars like flies to honey. From a glamorous nightclub that is tucked away on the island of Capri to one of Toronto’s most famous restaurants, here is your guide to spotting celebs all around the world.
Chiltern Firehouse — London, England
Chiltern Firehouse is the London restaurant for A-list celebs. Expect to see a ton of stars inside and outside (that’s after spending your lifetime on the wait list, of course) like Kate Moss, Sarah Silverman, Gordon Ramsay, Michelle Rodriguez, Kylie Minogue, Noel Gallagher, and Lily Allen, just to name a few. “The Chiltern Firehouse is now getting to be such a star-studded location, even on a mid-week night, that it’s almost impossible to keep track of all the celebrities entering its now hallowed portals,” the Daily Mail reported.
Centrale — Venice, Italy
It is no surprise that Centrale landed on our list considering it is located in one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world. Centrale is the only place in Venice where you can eat until 2 a.m.! You can be sure to see Elton John and Christina Aguilera, two of many stars who pop in the lounge for a drink or a quick bite.
