If Abbot Kinney's non-stop buzz (and lack of sufficient gratis parking) is persuading you to ditch the stretch altogether, know that there's still unchartered territory to explore. Laid-back lifestyle shop Beach House arrived on the street a few months back, bringing surf shack-style vibes to the street's far west end.
Located just beyond anti-hippie cycling and yoga studio YAS, the boutique offers clothing, swimwear, jewelry, accessories, and more for all members of your boho-chic clan. In addition to a mix of independent European designers, expect to find basics by LNA, Monrow, and Sol Los Angeles; sandals by Cornetti; swimwear by Beach Riot, luxe leather goods by Elisabeth Weinstock; and much more merch for coastal vacays. Plus, we hear that stars have been known to host impromptu Om seshes at the shop's hammock-happy lounge area from time to time.
