What Are the Locations in Kim Kardashian iPhone Game Based On? You Can Visit LIF IRL
Fashion deity/magazine maven Elizabeth Korkov and hot mess/nemesis Willow Pape aren’t the only elements of Kim Kardashian: Hollywood that miiiiiiiight have been inspired by the real world, wink wink. Many of the restaurants, bars, clubs, studios, and stores that your avatar frequents in the iPhone game are based on real-life locations. Some of the IRL locations are fairly obvious (I see you, KARDASH), some of 'em are slightly less obvious, and some of 'em have me like "IDK??????"
Say you want to tour all of the locations in KK:H. First of all, I admire your dedication to the game. And second, you are in luck! Erm, sort of. You can't tour the locations in the game (sorry, I don't think science has figured out a way to Mike Teavee people into iPhone games), but you can visit the actual places that probably inspired the locations in the game.
Here are some of the KK:H locayshes and what appear to be their real-life counterparts. If a locaysh didn't make this list, that doesn't necessarily mean it doesn't exist on planet Earth. It just means I couldn't pin it down.
(If you know the name of the real-life restaurant that inspired KK:H Panino, please contact me. I couldn't find it, and the mystery continues to gnaw at me.)
The Brew Palms (Hollywood)
IRL: Blue Palms Brewhouse
Mirimount Pictures (Hollywood)
IRL: A combination of Miramax Films and Paramount Pictures (but that arch is verrrrry Paramount Pictures)
IRL: DASH (this location closed and moved to West Hollywood)
IRL: LIV Night Club
LIV looks like a stressful place.
Ugh, I hope when I reach level 55, I get to go to the Versace mansion. A girl can dream!
CHATEAU NUIT (LAS VEGAS)
Where are the chandeliers, KK:H?
Duh doye, part deux.
IRL: 1 OAK
Like I could use any other picture taken at 1 OAK.
Muse Magazine (SOHO)
IRL: Vogue/Condé Nast
KK:H definitely needs more Grumpy Cat.
My favorite part of the entire "tour": The portraits in KARDASH NYC and DASH NYC are basically the same. SUCH DETAIL, KK:H!
