We've rounded up a bunch of businesses with Beverly Hills in their name and ranked them according to how far they actually are from Beverly Hills

Businesses seem to go out of their way to slip "Beverly Hills" into their name just to be able to associate with the star-studded, ritzy city. We're not sure what's worse: venues just across the border that so badly want to be able to claim a Beverly Hills address, or spots miles away that have no business putting the city in their name at all. We'll let you be the judge: We've listed as many not-actually-in-Beverly Hills businesses* as we could find and ranked them according to their actual distance from the city.

*We've omitted the innumerable plastic surgery practices with Beverly Hills in their name, not because we wanted to take the high road, but because there are just too many to count.

<1 mile from the Beverly Hills border

SLS Hotel Beverly Hills (.001mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Beverly Grove

Its La Cienega entrance keeps this hotel in Los Angeles, but two other sides sit on Beverly Hills streets. So close.

Beverly Hills Orthodontics (.01mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Century City

Since it's right across the street, we imagine this is where the Beverly Hills High School kids get their braces tightened.

Beverly Hills Body (.01mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Century City

Since it's right across the street, we imagine this is where the Beverly Hills High School kids get their faces tightened.

Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles At Beverly Hills (.02mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Pico-Robertson

From the people who came up with "Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim," presumably.

Rehabilitation Centre of Beverly Hills (.02mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Beverly Grove

Well someone has to catch all of the Google search traffic for "Beverly Hills rehab."

Mr. C Beverly Hills (.1mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Pico-Robertson

For $45 more, you can even have a room with a view of Beverly Hills.

Beverly Hills Juice (.4mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Beverly Grove

"Raw since 1975." And wrong since 1975.

LA Beverly Hills Nails (.5mi)

Actual Neighborhood: Beverly Grove

If you can smell the toxic fumes from Beverly Hills, that counts, right?

Beverly Hills Plaza Hotel (.5mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Westwood

One meaning of a plaza is a service area adjacent to a highway. So we guess that makes this a rest stop before crossing the Beverly Hills border.

Beverly Hills Ducati (.6mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Beverly Grove

Certified pre-owned Ducati motorcycles, a not-so-certified use of Beverly Hills.

1–5 miles

Hotel Palomar Los Angeles Beverly Hills (1.3mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Westwood

Hotel Palomar Los Angeles Westwood just wouldn't have the same ring to it.

W Los Angeles - West Beverly Hills (1.5mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Westwood

You mean Westwood? No, West Beverly Hills. So... Westwood.

Beverly Hills BMW (1.8mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Mid-Wilshire

Why not Koreatown BMW? K-town is a half-mile closer.

Beverly Hills Unique Sports Cars (1.9mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Mid-City

It's on La Brea a block away from a Roscoe's—not quite hallmarks of Beverly Hills.

Beverly Hills Body & Paint (1.9mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Palms

When you're a block away from the Culver City Metro station, it's safe to say this isn't Beverly Hills.

Beverly Hills Porsche (1.9mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Westwood

The showroom and service center sit squarely in LA, though the fancy "Pre-Owned & Exotics" location can actually claim a Beverly Hills address.

Lili's Beverly Hills (3.8mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Sherman Oaks

We guess Sherman Oaks is sort of the Beverly Hills of the Valley.

>5 miles

Beverly Hills Car Club (10.7mi)
Actual Neighborhood: East LA

You know, it's that industrial part of Beverly Hills: north of the 10, south of the railroad tracks and 15 miles east of the 405.

Beverly Hills Teddy Bear Co. (20mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Santa Clarita

Nothing says Beverly Hills like Shrek figurines, Hulk Hogan plush dolls and a Santa Clarita address.

Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center (42mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Newport Beach

To be fair, there are also two locations in West LA and Manhattan Beach that are closer to, but still not in, Beverly Hills.

Beverly Hills Bridal Exchange (53mi)
Actual Neighborhood: Corona

We'd like to imagine there's a Corona Bridal Exchange opening soon on Rodeo Drive.
