Los Angeles Guide

Coffee & Tea

  • Lamill Coffee Boutique

    18-hour cold. Killer doughnut holes. Perfect place to impress a client.

  • Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea

    A prime example of regional Silver Lake architecture, designed by Barbara Bestor. Also, more beards and tattoos than one can keep count of. Enjoying a coffee on the sunny patio isn't so bad, either.

Shopping

  • Mohawk General Store

    Stocks brands from A.P.C. to Grown Alchemist in what feels like a delicately and thoughtfully appointed bungalow.

  • Aēsop DTLA

    Fresh scents. Attention to detail. Magnificent sales staff.

Food

  • Laurel Hardware

    Stiff drinks. Perfect patio brunch. In a retrofitted hardware store, of all things.

  • Superba Snack Bar

    Smoked bucatini carbonara. A superb interiors.

Bars

  • Villains Tavern

    Live folk music every night. Craft beer. Outdoor venue in the middle of nowhere.

  • Bar Stella

    Smoky atmosphere. Middle Eastern vibe. Perfect first date spot.

Adventures

  • Mount Hollywood Hike

    Climb the winding trail up to Mount Hollywood's peak, then work your way down to the observatory to admire sunset. A bottle of wine and accoutrements not necessary, but highly recommended.
