Nine zero one salon

If you are looking to get red carpet ready or off out with the girls then this discreet beauty spot founded by Nikki Lee and Riawna Capri is a must. Frequented by Hollywood stars this sun filled space is super stylish and fun. Not only can you get a new do but if you fancy going all out then they offer a full make up service and even take house calls if you can’t get to the salon.
Personally, we simply can’t get enough of their braid bar. With a choice of 8 styles of braid you can be an Uptown Girl one day and Venice Hippie the next. How fabulous.

The art house

Bergamot Station

Housing a growing cluster of Art Galleries, this Art Complex set in rustic industrial warehouse buildings is one of LA’s most cultural destinations since 1994. The name Bergamot Station refers to the original 1875 Red Line Trolley Station, named after the bergamot flower that grew in the area. Now it’s home to a wonderful variety of art, where you can spend hours weaving between the galleries. If you are a Contemporary Art fan you cannot miss this.
