This week we're thirsty for SoCal streets. This is LA with no filter.
This popular thoroughfare on the west side of Venice - named after the man who built the city's canals - is THE spot to bust out your beach cruiser and coast. With unique shops like Aviator Nation and The Piece Collective (and delish eats like Gjelina and Salt Air), it's no wonder this street has its own annual festival - one that CALIWATER proudly participates in each year!
2. Melrose Ave.
For insanely Instagrammable walls and vintage shopping to satisfy your inner vixen, take a waltz down Melrose Ave.
Pose in front of the Paul Smith pink wall and the Cisco "Made in LA" mural to solidify your status as a true California girl, and peruse the Melrose Trading Post on Sundays after brunch with your crew; you're finally home.
3. Sunset Blvd.
West Hollywood's iconic Sunset Strip is the home of cultural cornerstones like The Roxy Theater, The Viper Room, and Whisky a Go Go, but it's also a birthplace of new ideas and trends. It's one street you can't miss if you want to visit the cutting edge.
5. Wilshire Blvd.
This east-west line connects many of LA's business districts and is lined with towering sky scrapers.
Live out your big city dreams by visiting the commissary at the Line Hotel in Korea Town, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on the Miracle Mile, and the Underground Lounge at the historic Wiltern Theater.
7. Santa Monica Blvd.
Santa Monica Blvd. is home to the iconic Troubadour in West Hollywood (the venue that helped launch Elton John, James Taylor, and Tom Waits) and the Hollywood Forever Cemetery (where Cinespia puts on huge movie screening events). It also intersects Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, so keep it in mind for those days when you're feeling fancy. And, seriously, check out Tom Waits!
If you're in LA, you'll see us out and about on Sunset, Melrose, and Mulholland - as well as at swanky soirées like the Just Jared Summer Bash. Our job is to keep everyone happy and hydrated - in LA and beyond!
