Aside from the very sad departure of The Tar Pit, the revitalization of La Brea Ave continues apace with a bunch of new shops. A recent stroll down the stretch revealed that Kelly Cole, A+R and Judith Bright are all open for business, and nearby food and drink spots Sycamore Kitchen and Graffiti are plenty busy.
According to neighborhood gossip and confirmed by a pr contact for District La Brea, Steven Alan will soon be joining the party with his own retail stop at 123 S La Brea. This will mark Alan's third retail store in LA (not counting his outlet-esque Outpost in Los Feliz). Stay tuned for an opening date.
