Key to the City

A San Franciscan’s Guide to L.A.

Key to the City BY courtney conway 10/25/2016

Now that Lauren Wolf has an outpost of her store, Esqueleto, in L.A, the longtime Oakland dweller finds herself traveling south on the regular. Even though her trips are quick (and usually spurred by a delivery of her stand-out rings and pendant necklaces), she’s got a tightly edited list of must-hit spots for each one. Here’s her guide to living 48 hours in and around Echo Park as a not-quite-tourist.

 

 

Stay

HOTEL COVELL

Via Hotel Covell

 

“This is one of my new favorite places to stay on the East Side. It’s just on the border of Los Feliz and Silverlake, and there are so many great places to eat and shop. Getting downtown is so easy, just a quick drive down Sunset Boulevard. They also have an amazing bar.”

 

 

Eat

EIGHTFOLD COFFEE

Via Eightfold Coffee

 

“One of our newer neighbors, on the same block as Esqueleto. They make, hands-down, the best coffee on L.A.'s East Side.”

 

CAFE STELLA

Via Cafe Stella

 

“A work trip to L.A. wouldn't be complete without a quick stop for drinks and dinner in the Sunset Junction for classic French food at Cafe Stella.”

 

 

GUISADOS

Via Guisados

 

“A taco must! Another one of our neighbors down in Echo Park and a go-to for every time I'm at the shop. It's across the street, and what could make for a better lunch spot?!”

 

 

Do Things

GRAND CENTRAL MARKET

Via Grand Central Market

 

“For one reason or another, I often find myself in Downtown L.A. There's so much to love about what's happening there right now with the art, music, and food scenes. I love stopping by the Grand Central Market food hall to grab a quick coffee at G&B Coffee before my appointments.”

 

THE HUNTINGTON LIBRARY

Via The Huntington Library

 

“On my to-do list when I actually have a few free moments are the gardens at The Huntington Library in Pasadena, to check out what’s blooming and the sculptures.”
