Nostalgia in its most common form was responsible for the old front desk of The Beverly Hills Hotel (from 1942 to 1979) being made into a bar.

Nostalgia is a sentimentality for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.<ref name=boym>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref> The word nostalgia is a learned formation of a Greek compound, consisting of νόστος{{#invoke:Category handler|main}} (nóstos), meaning "homecoming", a Homeric word, and ἄλγος{{#invoke:Category handler|main}} (álgos), meaning "pain, ache", and was coined by a 17th-century medical student to describe the anxieties displayed by Swiss mercenaries fighting away from home. Described as a medical condition—a form of melancholy—in the Early Modern period, it became an important trope in Romanticism.<ref name=boym/>

Nostalgia can refer to a general interest in the past, its personalities, and events, especially the "good old days" from one's earlier life.

The scientific literature on nostalgia usually refers to nostalgia regarding the personal life and has mainly studied the effects of nostalgia induced during the studies.<ref>see the research of Constantine Sedikides and colleagues, http://www.southampton.ac.uk/psychology/about/staff/cs2.page.</ref> Smell and touch are strong evokers of nostalgia due to the processing of these stimuli first passing through the amygdala, the emotional seat of the brain. These recollections of one's past are usually important events, people one cares about, and places where one has spent time. Music and weather can also be strong triggers of nostalgia. Nostalgic preferences, the belief that the past was better than is the present, has been linked to biases in memory.<ref>{{#invoke:Citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=journal }}</ref>
