La Brea Avenue boasts some of the best restaurants, bakeries, eclectic furniture shops, clothing stores, bars, and lounges. Its not as snotty as Beverly Hills but celebrities are still spotted there. These are your must-stop places along one of the most famous streets in Los Angeles.
Great for weekend brunch or for any carb craving! They seriously have breads that would even native French and Italians jealous.
A true LA fashion gem. Cool trends that you'll never find in a mall or on the fashion police hitlist.
Conveniently located next to some top quality retail therapy, this place dishes up my French favorites without having to exchange my dollars in euros. It's super popular on weekend mornings but totally worth the wait.
Do you really want to furnish your place with IKEA furniture that will take you a decade to assemble and look exactly like every college student's? This place offers pieces that you couldn't even dream up and the very best part: no assembly required! This might save your marriage!
One of the best bargains in LA. Great selection of vintage clothes, shoes, and accessories that won't take a comma out of your bank balance and don't smell like second-hand.
This vintage store has gorgeous jewelry that you'll never find at those dumb mall jewelry stores that have cheesy commercials. This store boasts timeless, eclectic accessories that you'll literally not be able to find anywhere else.
Great cosy music spot and awesome sound system. If I ever dared to sing in public, I'd do it here cause they'd probably manage to make me sound tolerable. Perfect for discovering new music talent that'll make it big soon.
A gem of a store. Stylish clothes for any occasion that will only add class to your wardrobe. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff too that will be honest if you look ridiculous.
My friend got me hooked on S Factor and now I even want to get a pole for my house so I can practice! Surprisingly one of the best workouts I've done as my arms were sore the next day!
Perfect for a first date (as you don't feel pressured to have a full sit-down dinner). Impressive wine selection and all within affordable prices. Easy and cheap parking too, which is rarer than modestly priced vintage wines!
Great ramen joint with super easy parking too! I also suggest you round out you meal with their black sesame ice cream. Just come prepared with some cash cause they don't do cards.
