MO Bar at The Landmark, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong

Popular with local and global celebrities alike, MO Bar at The Landmark, Mandarin Oriental has been welcoming the likes of Andy Lau and Kate Moss for nearly a decade. Perhaps it's the fresh organic fare and contemporary cocktails or maybe it's the chic and stylish interiors, either way, it has hosted enough stars that it's practically galactic. 

Cecconi's, Los Angeles

Hollywood is teeming with the rich and the famous, but for the biggest names in town there is only one destination: Cecconi’s. Serving relaxed Venetian cuisine within a glamorous atmosphere, the best place for star gazing is on the gorgeous covered terrace, where Ellen DeGeneres and Gwen Stefani have been known to hang out.

Chiltern Firehouse, London

Chiltern Firehouse is one of the best places for celeb spotting in London, frequented by David Beckham, Kate Moss, Bradley Cooper and Orlando Bloom among many others, all of whom flock to the former fire station to tuck into chef Nuno Mendes' modern American cuisine. And to be seen, of course. 

Catalina, Sydney

An iconic part of the Sydney scene, Catalina has seen many celebrities grace its dining room over the past 23 years.
