Lincoln Blvd the Next Abbot Kinney in Venice

Lincoln Blvd the Next Abbot Kinney in Venice

Lincoln Blvd. has come a long way!

Take a stroll down Lincoln Boulevard for a change. This up and coming street is a great place to spend an afternoon exploring or somewhere to chill on your lunch break. You’ll find great bars and resturants to eat up and down the street.

Helen’s Cycles is a well known bicycle shop where anyone can rent bikes and get tips on some great rides nearby. All up and down Lincoln Blvd there are a ton of murals, perfect for picture taking.

There’s tons of little shops including a pyschic and tarot card reading if you’re feeling curious about your future.

The night scene the Blvd becomes more alive than in the day time. There are various bars and gastropubs up and down the street.

Definitely check out Wurstkuche! It’s a sausage restaurant and bar that has a twist on the normal hot dog, ranging from a classic Italian to a gourmet sausage. There are exotics where brave customers can try rattlesnake, duck, pheasant etc. They carry an extensive range of beer, from German, Belgian and American IPAs. If you’re a fan of beer and sausages this is a great place to eat and hang with friends.

burgers n brews lincoln blvd

Burgers n’ Brews is a great place to eat if you love burgers and beers on tap. It’s a fairly new restaurant where the burgers served are all gourmet and for a great price. All the burgers are served with fries however you can substitute them for sweet potato fries or even a fresh kale salad. They have IPA’s and Lagers all handpicked and local beers. 

Venice nightlife The LincolnAnother hotspot is The Lincoln, which has been previously featured on AKFF. Great cocktails and strong!

If you’re looking for a chill place to hang check out Lincoln Blvd!

Murphy Ranch

These ruins can go unnoticed tucked away in the Pacific Palisades. This abandoned Nazi camp is now covered in graffiti artwork and is a resting/ exploration point through the Pacific Palisades trails. A slice of untold LA history hides away deep in our hills and is waiting for you to find it.
Sullivan Fire Rd, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272

Culver City Stairs

For all exercise junkies, the Culver City Stairs will defiantly make you work for that delicious slice of pizza (or two… ok maybe one more slice) you’ll be eating on First Fridays. The stairs stretches out to be approximately 500 steps. Once you get to the top of the stairs you have this beautiful view of West LA. You can also choose to take a 1 mile trail back down.
6300 Hetzler Rd, Culver City, CA 90232

Abbot Kinney First Fridays May 2015 Photo Gallery

Abbot Kinney First Fridays May 2015 Photo Gallery

[slideshow_deploy id=’2177′]

 

Abbot Kinney First Fridays on May 1, 2015 was a blast! 

Shopping on Abbot Kinney Boulevard – see the most recent trends in the AKFF photo gallery, Eating (of course!) is the main attraction with 20 food trucks to choose from, for example Roll n Lobster for the delish Conneticut  ginormous lobster roll, Alegria for healthy organic, Sweet E’s, well you know what that’s for…

Both Palms and Santa Clara Av were turned into food truck corrals again, which provided room for more trucks and for those who wanted to eat and sit down at picnic benches.

The ever changing Abbot Kinney Bl: It was sad to see Hal’s Bar & Grill closed with the construction crews tearing it apart, though not to worry, it will be seen in it’s new home where Primitivo is with Casa Linda in the same space. Wylie Wilson moved from Santa Clara to their larger new digs next door where it fronts on Abbot Kinney. We’re glad to know that Tumbleweed & Dandelion found out last minute that they can keep their space!

InviteUp was on the boulevard, showing off their new mobile dating/event app – hint: event coming soon on Abbot Kinney! (Come back  so you can get the invite.)

Shopping at the increasing amount of shops open later for First Fridays was great! We checked out Satine, Skylark, Ruti, Ananda and Wylie Wilsonto salivate over the fresh and fab apparel, accessories and lingerie. Plus, a sample sale at Stephanie Johnson during the day for a set of fabulous silver cosmetic and travel bags was sweet!

Drinking a glass of wine at The Other Room was a great way to start out the evening! They have a good wine and beer selection and will tweak the wine list for even more better wines. Cheers!
