The opening is of Richard Gere driving his 450SL along Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

Gere first meets Lauren Hutton's character at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Gere's apartment/hotel was supposed to be Wilshire blvd in Westwood, but was actually in the Sunset Plaza section of West Hollywood.

Much of the action is centered around then-trendy Westwood Village.

He meets his female pimp (and later Lauren Hutton) at Perino's

The gay bar he visits was Probe on LaBrea Avenue, an actual gay bar.

[Thanks to Tom for all the above locations info]

200 Hamilton Ave at the corner of Wilshire where julian sought to find Leon. He pulls up at the bar/night club and asks the door man if he has seen leon. I believe the red lights at the club say "Hamilton's" or something like that. [Thanks to Alec]
