If there's ever a place a celebrity wants to feel safe it's West Hollywood. That didn't happen last night after 2 a.m. when BOA Steakhouse, right underneath Soho House and smack dab in Sunset Strip, was robbed at gunpoint, reports TMZ.

The gunmen walked in when managers were counting up the till and receipts for the day, demanding all the cash from the night's sales, which amounted to somewhere between $6,000 and $8,000.

The robbers walked into the restaurant through an unsecured back door and put the gun to the manager's head, taking tips and emptying the restaurant's safe. Watch out restaurant owners, because those gunmen are still at large.
