actual Southern California locations where
the 2007 movie "Knocked Up"
After the argument, Ben & Pete
meet at a dingy bar, where they talk,
drink, and eventually they decide to go to Las Vegas.
This scene was shot at an actual
bar called "Del's Saloon".
You'll find it at 12238 Santa Monica Blvd,
in West Los Angeles. That's part
of a strip mall
near the southwest corner of Santa Monica Blvd & Wellesley Ave,
mile west of the San Diego (405) Freeway.
The Las Vegas
scenes were shot on location at (what was then called) the Aladdin
Resort & Casino,
at 3667 Las Vegas Blvd, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
It is now called the Planet Hollywood Resort &
scenes (where Ben freaks out) were filmed at Cirque du Soleil’s
original Vegas show,
"Mystere", which is showing
at Treasure Island (at the Mirage),
at 3300 Las Vegas Blvd.
Alison goes into labor, and
Ben drives her to the hospital.
That driving scene (in the photo above) was shot on Santa
Monica Blvd, in West L.A. That's ten blocks west of the San Diego (405) Freeway, and just
six blocks east of
an earlier location, Del's Saloon. (They are
driving west/southwest on
Santa Monica Boulevard. The camera is looking north.)
We see them pull up in front
of the hospital. (Ben parks in a handicapped
That hospital was actually Valley Presbyterian
Hospital, which is located at 15107 Vanowen Street, in
Van Nuys (a long drive from Santa
That's in the middle of the Valley, just east of the San Diego (405) Freeway,
about midway between two previous locations: Baby
Town and the drugstore.
As the movie ends, and the
credits begin to roll, we see Ben & Alison heading home,
in their car, driving down a slanted road
towards a beach street below.
The beach street below is Pacific Coast Highway.
The slanted road heading down to PCH
is known as the California Incline.
They are headed northwest (which, in real life, would
take them to Malibu, not Brentwood). The green
lawns dotted with palm trees,
which we see on the cliffs above, is Palisades Park,
in Santa Monica.
