Downtown L.A. | February 24, 2022

Boutique & Concept Stores

From designer boutiques to quirky concept stores, Downtown LA boasts an eclectic shopping experience. To name a few, find beautiful coffee table books at Hennessey + Ingalls, limited edition streetwear at Dover Street Market, and delicate Japanese pottery at Kinto. Explore our favorite swoon-worthy gems, waiting to be discovered across Downtown.



There’s no way to grasp the size and scope of ROW DTLA without seeing it in person — the impressive curation of places to eat, shop, work, and just chill includes Japanese food at Hayato (order a bento box), and the flakiest, crunchiest fried chicken we’ve ever had at chef Kuniko Yagi’s Pikunico. Stores focus on local businesses like Erica Tanov, Kinto, Ahlem, and Bodega—arguably the most well-stocked sneaker store in the city. On weekends, the streets are closed off to cars, leaving ample space to walk around and explore; be sure to stop by on Sundays, when Smorgasburg LA’s food trucks take over next door at the Alameda Produce Market.

We’ve admired designer Erica Tanov’s bohemian printed separates and eclectic selection of fashion and homewares since we discovered her namesake Berkeley boutique nearly 10 years ago. Tanov has that cool-girl knack for finding unexpected items, be it a linen blouse made in India, a pair of edgy Officine Creative black boots, or a set of vintage jewel-colored cocktail glasses. Find her bohemian inventory in its latest location in Downtown’s vibrant and artsy Row.

New to DTLA, Kinto focuses on striking a balance between beauty and functionality in building out the ultimate home cook’s kitchen. In other words, not only will the delicate Japanese pottery and double-wall champagne glasses on offer add pizzazz to your counters but, thanks to Kinto’s obsession with quality, they’ll stand the test of time, too.

These Days

Located on an unassuming corner, this gallery-boutique hybrid is one of the most delightfully unexpected finds in LA. At These Days, owners Jodi and Stephen Zeigler curate a wide range of art ranging from nostalgic punk rock memorabilia to experimental photography and mixed media pieces. On the other side of the light-filled space, their boutique offers a curated mix of wares including indigo-dyed fabrics, Le Feu de L’eau candles, and out-of-print photography books, all of which make for ideal gifts.
