This stylish destination, roughly defined by the intersection of Melrose Avenue and Robertson and Beverly Boulevards (collectively known as the Avenues of Art & Design)—might be one of the best people-watching area’s in the L.A. megalopolis. Here, art, fashion, and design officianados, trend-setters, and in-the-know celebrities pull up in their Mazeratis and duck into shops to search for edgy designs at high-end boutiques including Alberta Ferretti, Stella Mccartney, and Christian Louboutin.
Also known as a hot bed of interior design, Weho is home to more than 100 trade-only showrooms inside the Pacific Design Center. While only design professionals can shop in the center, you can browse and buy in the dozens of home ware and furniture stores that dot the adjacent blocks. And besides, just hanging out near the PDC can be inspiring—the complex, designed by influential Argentine-American architect César Pello, consists of three notice-me glass buildings—one race car red, one cobalt blue, and one forest green.
