Venice/Mar Vista

Iconic Venice, CA… Also known as Dog Town, is probably the fastest changing neighborhood on the Westside. It’s impossibly hip, cool, fun and filled with the most innovative restaurants and shops. If you want the coolest and the most high end of everything, Venice is it. You can’t walk down Abbot Kinney without stopping in one of the cafes or shops and inevitably falling in love with everything in there. Gone are the days of cheap burritos and coffee, you are now entering the new Venice: sleek, chic and upscale. Gourmet doughnuts, the finest of cashmere, Intelligentsia coffee and cured fish and meats at Gjusta is what now defines Dog Town. Yes, there is still Venice Beach, with the biggest skate park in town, its merchant filled boardwalk and a fair amount of colorful locals (some on skateboards, some camping out on the beach with their dogs), there is still your old Venice but that too is shifting with the fancy rooftop bars and sleek new cafes popping up on every corner. The collection of homes is eclectic and interesting. Quiet streets with sleepy older cottages are turning into glitzy rows of architectural gems by famed architects like Marmol Ratziner and Mario Romano. Venice, CA continues to be one of the most unique and fun neighborhoods to call home.
