The Arts District isn't the only stylish nabe that loves a boozy block party. This Thursday, indie shopping haunt West Third Street is rallying up its many retail, resto, and beauty residents for its annual festive soirée.
From 5 to 9pm, expect deals, gratis drinks and bites, and more at over 75 boutiques and eateries between La Cienega Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue. Fashion and accoutrements participants include essential indie shop Polkadots & Moonbeams, Noodle Stories, Ragdoll LA, Shopaholic Sample Sales, Gogosha Optique, Dan Deutsh Optical Outlook, Alexis Bittar, Wittmore, Douglas Fir, Flight 001, Area, and many others. As far as beauty and fitness, expect Aesop, Benefit Cosmetics, Drybar, Facehaus, Murad, Air Aerial Fitness, and others to get in on the party action.
For those in need of mid-spree grub, healthy foodie-faved spots like Joan's on Third, Kreation Kafe, Verve Coffee Roasters, Sweetgreen, and Matcha Box are just a few restaurants and cafes that are joining the festivities. There'll also be special deals on valet; plus, the folks behind West Third Street are giving away a staycation for two at the Orlando Hotel or a Pyrrha necklace when you sign up for its newsletter online.
