One of my favorite places to be. Day or night, there's always something to do down here. Great eateries (Gjelina, Zinque, Lemonade), good coffe (Intellegentsia) and last but not least, shopping. Don't feel weird for people watching - you only watch because *they're* weird.

would feel lost without Abbot Kinney in my life.. I don't know why! lol
Driving by the street makes me feel more calmer. :)
I love Abbot Kinney. Although the parking sucks, I love all the mom and pops boutique stores in this neighborhood. They are each unique and have the most authentic stuff. The restaurants is one of the reason this street is so popular. Here's where you'll find me at some of my favorite hang out spots on Abbot Kinney.
The Panini Garden for brunch.
Joe's Restaurant for brunch and dinner. Lilly's for brunch. Lemonade for healthy food, The tasting room and Via Vento for romantic fine dinning.
Jin Pastarrie for great breakfast and brunch.
Abbot's Pizza for one of the best pizza spot in LA.
and, Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea.
On your late nights, we stop over at The Other room to have a few drinks and meet up our buds around the hood, head down to Abbot's pizza for a late night bite.
And the Nite Spa, for late hours pamper me treatments.
Trust me, you'll won't regret the places I mentioned above.
On the first Friday of the month, they have a night filled with food trucks on the road. No need to go pay an entrance fee at those Food Truck festivals, get them all here on Friday night! Love the crowd here. Lots of lay back people just enjoying themselves. I need to make my rounds at least once every two weeks to feel good! :)

My friend, Joa, took me to her favorite place in LA which happens to be Abbot Kinney Blvd. There are a row of eclectic shops, restaurants, and sights that you will not encounter elsewhere in LA. They are all locally sourced and that's the beauty of a street like this. You're never going to find anything else like it. Come and really enjoy the hidden gems that reside on Abbot Kinney.

There are tons of boutique shops, galleries, and restaurants here. This is a popular place to be on Friday night. However, on every 1st Friday of the month, Abbot Kinney gets even more packed with people because more than 20 food trucks line the street. I would highly recommend trying out the food trucks (a must in LA) then so you have tons of choices all at one place.

I don't know if this makes me a hipster but I love Abbot Kinney. The little boutiques, the coffee shops, the vintage vibe of some of the places....

perfect for shopping and dinning. Shop for men, women, babies and your home. All modern and hip fashions. This area is targeting those who are fashion forward and willing to invest some money to look and live an aspirational lifestyle.

Non-touristy and full of offbeat local flavor, Abbot Kinney Blvd is just about my favorite street to amble in LA, especially to get away from the chain shops, restaurants and crowds in Santa Monica. AK Blvd is lined with independent boutique shops, art galleries, coffee bars, interesting eateries and lots of funky-beautiful people watching to boot. Parking is tight, but there are a few public pay lots if you can't find on-street parking for free in the residential side streets.Recommended for:Trendsters

Abbot Kinney is a really cool strip near Venice Beach that's less Hollywood glitz and glamour and more hipster cool. The look of the whole area is really neat which is why I had some engagement shots taken here.
