Pantages Theatre

Pantages Theatre

Los Angeles, CA

Hosts some of Broadway's most popular shows. The whole theater feels like a flashback to old school Hollywood when it was brimming with glamour and stars.

Joan's On Third

Joan's On Third

Los Angeles, CA

Major celeb spotting at lunch. But I love them for their picnic baskets and cheese plates. The many different lines are confusing - dont be afraid to ask for direction.

A treasure trove of used books and records. The atmosphere is just what you would want it to be, not stuffy at all!

Counterpoint was the first used bookstore I ever frequented so it has sentimental value for me. They buy books, records, dvd's, tapes, and vhs so their stock changes frequently.…

Friendly and helpful staff. Never got my eyebrows waxed before (I was a slave to the tweezer) but they did a great job and I might give up the tweezer for good!

In ShortThe clothes here would look good on a 16-year-old or a 60-year-old, which is not a claim that many boutiques can make. Here it means that the stock is classic, of good…

The sneakers here are really bright and decorative. Many of them are more for showing off than actually practical for working out or anything. This is a very fun store.

Family Bookstore. Sometimes what makes a great bookstore isn't a massive selection, but an owner who surprises you by indulging his own eccentric tastes in art, literature, and politics. Family Bookstore is that kind of bookstore. When I came here they had copies of Laszlo Krasznahorkai's "Satantango," Roberto BolaƱo's "The Secret of Evil," and a book on Nan Goldin's photography. They also carry records, films, zines and self-published art-comics. There is a gallery space in the back for local artists exhibitions.… read more
