Exploring Echo Park

One of the best things about opening a new location is discovering all the great things about our new neighborhood. Whether it’s a new go-to lunch spot, fellow shopping destinations, or just a great place to walk the dog, Echo Park has a lot to offer!

Ampal Creative:

Ampal Echo Park LA One for the boys – this limited edition hat shop is the creative output of Andrew Potash, the brother of our talented jeweler Nick Potash. Crafted in LA from deadstock vintage and hard-to-find fabrics, each headpiece is unique.

Guisado’s:

GUISADO Echo Park LA Hands down the best tacos in town. Located right across the street from Esqueleto LA, I’ve been chowing down here almost every day. Try the quesadilla, a weird but wonderful concoction made by folding a griddled cheese slab and special sauce into a handmade corn tortilla.

Collection Vintage:

Collection Vintage Echo Park LA I was totally lamenting the loss of my fav vintage spots in Oakland, until I found Collection, located just a few doors down from Esqueleto. With a mix of edgy designer duds (Anne Demeulemeester mint leather blazer? Yes please!) and perfect 60s/70s frocks (I walked out wearing a little pink polyester number), this shop has my style on lockdown.

Dinette:

Dinette Echo Park LA Though it consists of little more than a takeout window occupying a slim corner of the local 99 Cent store, Dinette packs a serious gourmet punch. A morning walk here for an expert latte and mind-blowing pastry has become a daily ritual.

Elysian Park:

Elysian Park, LA Our new spot is just around the corner from the Dodger’s stadium, which is located in beautiful Elysian Park. Though I could never root for anyone other than my Oakland A’s, the park itself has so much to offer. With miles and miles of green grass, picnic tables and off-leash trails, my dog is thrilled with our new neighborhood.
