Love And Loathing LA - February 2018


You know that little part of Hoover St, between Bellevue and Melrose? You might not actually not on first thought, because it consists of literally two blocks. But it’s turning into two blocks of pure joy. One might even say… a block party, if you will.

I appreciate these condensed cool blocks; these little LA nooks that are seemingly “nothing”. Because when you actually go to them, or accidentally discover them, they turn into a whole lot of something. And ultimately, you end up wanting to come back time and time again – because once it becomes the next York St., you’re going to be able to say “I was a fan before it was a thing” – one of our favorite things as Angelenos’ to claim.

Below are a few of the cute, locally owned shops and restaurants that have popped up on the latest and greatest “cool block” in LA. But as there is always so much left to discover, chime in if there are other undiscovered blocks that need checking out!

VINOVORE: Exclusively selling wine, this shop touts brands and bottles from female owned vineyards. It has a unique labeling system (of which the key can be found on the left wall) to help you find your perfect bottle. This is one block up and on the opposite side of the street from The Corner Shop. Also girl freakin’ power?!
