OUR LA STORE IS OPEN! CHECK OUT OUR MELROSE NEIGHBORHOOD GUIDECHECK OUT OUR LA STORE
NYC store, check. SF and Las Vegas pop-ups, check. Next stop: 8500 Melrose Ave., our newest permanent store. Really it’s more like two stores with a full-fledged men’s shop in addition to our women’s store, both filled with our best fashion, fine jewelry, watches, home decor and art. You can also consign in person, stop by the CaféCafé for fresh juices and Sightglass Coffee, attend workshops led by our in-store experts, book personal styling appointments and more. Plus, we have some pretty rad neighbors. We put together a guide to some of the best spots in our new neighborhood so you can make a day of it when you come to visit.
Vintage oil paintings, revamped chesterfield sofas and vibrant jewel tones adorn the rooms and communal spaces of this Melrose boutique hotel. The cozy, eclectic vibes extend to the in-house, southern-inspired restaurant, The Hart & The Hunter, as well as the Pali Record Club, a bar where you can sip craft cocktails while spinning records from their vintage vinyl collection.
Get Well: Moon Juice
Like a magical portal to cosmic wellness, at Moon Juice’s Melrose location you’ll find holistic potions ranging from adaptogenic powders (made from superherbs and mushrooms that help the body adapt to stress) to organic pressed juices to vegan mushroom-based skincare products.
If it sounds out there, that’s just part of the point of Moon Juice’s mission to go beyond your traditional health smoothie. Founder Amanda Chantal Bacon breaks it all down in the Moon Kingdoms.
See: MOCA Pacific Design Center
Get a dose of culture at the engaging exhibitions in this small MOCA outpost dedicated to architecture furniture and design. Don’t miss their newest exhibition opening August 4th — the first solo museum show to celebrate inclusive, gender and demographic-less LA lifestyle brand 69. Known for avant-garde yet universally accessible designs often in denim, the brand’s fun, thought-provoking approach will be on display in garments, photos and videos. Admission is always free!
Sweat: PLAYLIST. Yoga
If you love a good sun salutation but are the kind of person who never takes their headphones out at the gym or on a run, PLAYLIST. yoga offers the perfect workout hybrid. As the name suggests, playlists are key to the studio’s classes, with instructors carefully curating soundtracks that connect to breath and movement.
