    • STAY

      Palihouse Santa Monica.

      Mr. C Beverly Hills.

      If you’re looking for a place a little more centrally located, visit Mr. C Beverly Hills to experience the best of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. A modern twist of old school Hollywood and European glamour, you can enjoy panoramic views of the city and rejuvenate in pure luxury.

    • EAT

      Sqirl, East LA.

      Created by Jessica Koslow, Sqirl has become one of LA’s most sought after eating scenes. On arrival, there will most likely be a queue to sit down, however, do wait - it will be worth it. The small menu is bursting with goodness and originality - favourites include the Sorrel Pesto Rice bowl, the Socca Pancake with Labne + Herbs and the Rhubarb Lemonade. Great coffee, and the staff are wonderful.

      Osteria Moza, Hollywood.

      If you feel like splashing out a little, head to Nancy Silverton’s Italian restaurant Osteria Mozza. Recently profiled on the latest season of Chef’s Table, Silverton makes her culinary statement with a passionate dedication to homemade breads and cheeses. You may even be lucky enough to see Silverton working behind her mozzarella bar - situated in the centre of the restaurant. *Bookings are required.

      Gjusta, Venice.

      A bit of a local establishment, Gjusta serves as part-bakery, part-deli, and part-cafe. Once you have selected your breakfast bowl and enjoyed one or two exceptional coffees in the sunshine of their outdoor courtyard, be sure to leave with some pantry staples: freshly baked bread (the kelp sourdough is a highlight), house-made sauerkraut, fresh pesto and fruit jams.

    • SEE

      Hauser Wirth & Schimmel.

      Situated inside an historic flour mill, Hauser Wirth & Schimmel plays host to some wonderfully curated shows, showing both international and local artists, as well as an active public programme. The gallery also provides one of the best book store experiences offering monographs, artist’s books, and historic exhibition catalogues.

      Eames House

      A wonderful excuse to take a drive along the Pacific Coast Highway, you’ll find the Eames House tucked down a long driveway and nestled amongst the property’s towering eucalyptus trees. The smell is divine. So is the house. Although you’re not allowed indoors unless arranged, you can take in most of the home from the entrance ways. We recommend a wander around the property to take in the oceans views.

    • SHOP

      The Mart Collective

      Guaranteed to find too many things you want to take home but can’t due to size and weight, The Mart Collective in Venice offers a sprawling amount of antique and vintage finds from jewellery, furniture, clothing and books. Separated into stalls, each with their own look and feel, the collection is somewhat overwhelming - so put aside a few hours to rummage! Prices are on the higher side, but they reflect the item’s uniqueness and legitimacy.

      Melrose Trading Post Markets

      Take a Sunday morning stroll through the vintage stalls of Melrose Trading Post Markets with fresh coffee and tacos in-hand. A lovely relaxed vibe and a chance to chat to some locals. Expect to find vintage denim, authentic Mojave rugs, modernist earrings, and Japanese uniforms.

      Tortoise General Store

      An absolute gem situated on Abbot Kinney, Tortoise General Store is beautifully packed with Japanese and locally made items for your home: ceramics, paper goods, kitchenware, tools for the garden — everything you didn’t know you needed.
