THE SOCIAL 101: NICOLE’S FAVORITE SPOTS FOR HOLIDAY PARTIES12.12.2018BY NICOLE ARENA
Hi! Nicole here. The holiday season is in full swing, and today I’m excited to share a few of my favorite places to throw a fabulous holiday party. What I love about LA is that every neighborhood has its own charm and character, and if you look hard enough, you can always find a place that fits what you’re looking for.
VENICE IS READY TO PARTY AT #ABF20189.25.2018BY THE SOCIAL ARENA
Every year for the past 34 years, Abbot Kinney Festival celebrates Venice’s eclectic community and showcases all the character it has to offer. The longstanding summer tradition is back this year on Sunday, September 30th from 10am-6pm.
THE SOCIAL SPOT: TALLULA'S8.21.2018BY THE SOCIAL ARENA
With the success of iconic Santa Monica restaurants like Huckleberry Bakery & Cafe, Cassia, and Milo + Olive, husband and wife restauranteurs Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan have become household names around Los Angeles. But why stop there? The opening of Tallula’s in May 2017, has proven to be yet another win for the popular duo and their Rustic Canyon Family of Restaurant group.
THE SOCIAL SPOT: THE BUTCHER'S DAUGHTER8.7.2018BY THE SOCIAL ARENA
The Butcher’s Daughter may have been born and bred in New York City, but it sits right at home among the ocean breeze and thoughtfully designed corridors of Abbot Kinney. Its bright and distinguished interior is the work of owner and designer Rachel Tierney, and features a harmonic blend of industrial elements outfitted with rustic materials like wood, brick, and of course, plenty of plant life. It is after all, a plant-based restaurant. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the lively vegan and vegetarian menu takes it beyond just another Venice Beach health café, thanks to the creativity of Executive Chef Richard Rea, formerly a sous chef from Superba Restaurant Group, and Pastry Chef Ignacio Zorzoli.
