The bakery itself is slated to reopen—eventually—under the helm of pastry chef Sherry Yard.

HANG OUT, SHOP & STUFF

platform

Platform

This luxury shopping complex has brought nearly 20 high-end eateries and shops to Culver City, with outposts of Blue Bottle Coffee and Van Leeuwen, as well as mindful-living staples like Sweetgreen and SoulCycle, and the meat-centric butcher/restaurant the Cannibal. The colorful complex sits just across the street from the Culver City Metro stop, making it both a convenient stop on the way to Santa Monica and a destination in its own right.

3rd st promenade

Third Stree Promenade

Located in the downtown district, this outdoor, pedestrian-only segment of Third Street is considered a premier Westside destination for its shopping, dining, street performers, bookstores, theatres, and cafes. It stretches for three blocks between Wilshire and Broadway. Along this strip many are many nationally popular businesses including Apple, Anthropologie, West Elm and Hennessy and Ingalls bookstore and there are no less than three movie theaters.

beverly center

Beverly Center

Beverly Center is Southern California's quintessential fashion and dining destination ... boutiques and restaurants, all inspired by the creative spirit of Los Angeles.

stanley wet goods

Stanley Wet Goods

Great selection of wines. A bar for tasting and they have specials on certain nights. Stanley the owner is usually there to chat about wine. Cool spot to unwind.

culver hotel

Culver City Hotel

Built in 1924, the Culver Hotel is more than a cool old building — it is an amalgam of legends and rumors from a bygone era of film. Live jazz is featured every night in the elegantly remodeled downstairs bar/restaurant and during Sunday brunch.

Sony Pictures Studio Tour

As you pass through the studio gates on this leisurely walking tour, you’re immediately greeted by Tony Tasset’s arching Rainbow sculpture—a nod to the studio’s past as the home of The Wizard of Oz. The lot’s footprint has been significantly downsized since then, when it was known as the iconic MGM Studios, but the magnolia tree-lined sidewalks and clean, white Art Deco facades provide a pleasant backdrop for a trip through Tinseltown's past and present.

DRINKS & NIGHTLIFE

Culver Hotel

The Culver Hotel

Historic hotel. Great night life option on weekends. Live band.

cafe

Bigfoot Lodge West

An impressive spirits menu and spirited atmosphere make this rowdy cousin of the 1933 Group family a must stop. Brown is the color choice at Bigfoot Lodge West, from the log cabin exterior to the extensive selection of scotch, bourbon, and rye. Even those nearly as elusive as Bigfoot Van Winkles have been known to make an appearance at the bar. The daily 5-9 happy hour featuring $5 drinks including beer, wines, and a must-have rye Manhattan will make your stay at the Lodge well worth it.

rednights

Blind Barber

A shave, and a haircut…and a martini? Blind Barber is a one stop shop to get shaped up and get your taste of alcohol that is sure to have you looking and feeling great. That is if you can find the place. You won’t find any signage outside of Blind Barber except for an old fashioned barber pole marks the spot. Enter and you’ll find inside a standard barber shop. But, the real fun begins through the secret door in the back which leads you to a bustling speakeasy featuring handcrafted cocktails including the sweet Strawberry Fields and the spicy Smoke and Dagger. Bar munchies including truffled popcorn and a stellar grilled cheese selection make Blind Barber worth seeking out.

Red Nights

City Tavern

Offering an ever-rotating selection of quality local brews, City Tavern has emerged as a must-stop beer destination in Culver City. Whether you’re in the mood for stouts, IPAs, heffes, or Belgian dubbels, the expansive tap and bottle/can list will leave you satisfied. If you’re indecisive or if the impressive selection has you wanting to try all the beers, opt for the taster options available for all drafts. Come hungry, as City Tavern’s innovative spins on pub fare including a vodka-battered fish and chips, bacon jam burger, and pimento grilled cheese provide ideal beer pairings.

Backstage

Backstage Bar & Grill

This self-described “best dive bar in the world” might just live up to that lofty proclamation, especially when you’re three shots deep and engaged in a rousing Springsteen sing-a-long. Backstage certainly ticks off the right boxes on the dive bar checklist: cheap booze, unpretentious atmosphere, good people, not to mention karaoke. It’s no wonder a hardcore army of regulars sing its praises. Backstage also serves as Los Angeles’s unofficial Seahawks bar, so Seattle NFL fans take note especially if Russell Wilson and co. are playing on Monday Night Football a.k.a. burger night, featuring half pound patties and garlic fries for a measly five bucks.

Oldfield's

Oldfield’s Liquor Room

Named after racing legend Berna Eli “Barney” Oldfield (who happens to be buried in Culver City’s Holy Cross cemetery), this is the epitome of a neighborhood bar. The old school feel and bearded bartenders may be familiar, but the use of fruits, vegetables, and herbs straight from the Culver City Farmer’s Market takes Oldfield’s Liquor Room to another gear. The cocktail menu is divided between house favorites (The Millionaire, which pairs gin and Jamaican pot-still rum with apricot liquor and lime juice is a standout) along with a rotating list of seasonal concoctions. Locals especially appreciate the lengthy happy hours which runs from 5-9 on weekdays.

cafe

Seventy7 Lounge

While back alleys should usually be avoided, sometimes its worth make an exception. Case in point is Seventy7 Lounge which features a roaring 20s vibe complete with gold crushed velvet walls and comfy leather banquets. The elaborate cocktail list reads like an absinthe-induced dream. Not surprisingly, the green fairly appears on the menu, paired with parma liqueur, strawberry, Cointreau, Broken gin, creole bitters, and lemon juice for the intoxicating Lucidly Remembering.

Hotel

The Alley

This chic mixology lounge is appropriately named The Alley, as you must walk down the adjacent alley to access the entrance. With zero street visibility, this Culver City hot spot is easily missed, so be on the look out for the signage from sister restaurant FIN Asian Tapas Bar out front. Must-haves on the menu include the Jicama Fish Tacos and Pepperoni Pizza Dippers, while their most popular, fresh cocktails are 99 Problems But a Drink Ain’t One (mezcal, chipotle, serrano, agave) as well as the Brit favorite London Calling (gin, ginger, combier, Old Fashioned bitters)

ROCCO's

Rocco’s Tavern Culver City

Rocco’s Tavern Culver City features a sprawling bar, restaurant, and outdoor cafe inspired by the classic Italian restaurants and taverns of the East Coast. Rocco’s Tavern serves Italian-style comfort food. The bar features 20 beers on tap and a creative specialty cocktail list that includes the Staten Island Sweet Tea (premium sweet tea vodka, sweet and sour poured over ice) and the Jersey Shore Lemonade (vodka mojito made with mint, lemon wedges muddled with simple syrup, Smirnoff Citrus Vodka, and soda water). It also serves the Rocco Cocktail (a fruity bubble explosion of J. Roget Champagne, Absolut Raspberry Vodka & Chambord Liqueur in a sugar rimmed glass with a cherry on top).

RUSH

Rush Street

PARKS & NATURE

baldwin hills overlook

Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook

It's 282 steep, concrete stairs to the top of this Westside lookout, with a windy, paved walk down. On weekends and weekdays after work, the wide stairs are jam-packed with young locals, couples and groups of friends working out together. Having a lazy day? Take a shortcut and drive up to the top of the hill and park in the many empty spaces ($6). Once you reach the summit, sit at the long park bench and take in the 360-degree city views.

kenneth hahn

Kenneth Hahn State Recreational Area

Griffith may get all of the attention, but Kenneth Hahn is impressive in both size and topography for a park in the middle of the Westside. On top of the usual list of amenities, the Culver City-adjacent park contains a lotus pond, fishing lake and sand volleyball court. But the urban oasis really establishes itself with more than seven miles of walking and hiking trails through the Baldwin Hills, with views of almost every corner of the LA Basin—from the South Bay and the Pacific Ocean to Downtown and the San Gabriel Mountains.

Santa-Monica-Pier

Santa Monica Pier and Aquarium

Monica The landmark Santa Monica Pier has been drawing crowds for a century. It originally opened on September 9, 1909, but had no amenties. In 1916 the shorter adjoining pier to the south, Pleasure Pier, was added. Attractions were added over the years and today Pleasure Park twelve rides and many other attractions including a roller coaster, the world’s first and only solar-powered ferris wheel, a carousel built in 1922 (national historic landmark), a trapeze school, a miniature golf course, and an aquarium. The end of the pier is a popular location for anglers to cast their hook.

Santa-Monica-Beach-lrg

Santa Monica Beach State Park

Stretched out along 3.5 miles of the Pacific Coast Highway, the beach offers so much: parks, picnic areas, playgrounds, restrooms, bike rentals and a bike path, volleyball, wooden pathways for warm days and beachgoers with disabilities. And of course, the water itself offers the joys of swimming, wading, surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, or whatever your pleasure is, all under the watchful eye of manned lifeguard stations.

griffith park

Griftfith Park & Observatory

Griffith Park is a large municipal park at the eastern end of the Santa Monica Mountains, in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. The park covers 4,310 acres (1,740 ha) of land, making it one of the largest urban parks in North America.

ARTS & CULTURE

Star Prep Academy

Star Eco Station

Part wildlife rescue center, part educational facility, this very family-friendly enterprise practices what it preaches in terms of environmental awareness—it was even built from recycled materials. Staff provides care for unwanted exotic animals, many of which have either been donated by the public or were confiscated by governmental agencies. Families are welcome to pet an alligator or stroke a snake as they learn about endangered species, environmental concerns and how kids can make a change. A number of other exhibits add further context; call or check online for details of special events.

Studio

The Wende Museum

An earnest exhibition compiled by a young, Cold War–obsessed academic, this small collection is somewhat appropriately located in an anonymous office park, making it feel like an undercover operation. There are Stasi artifacts here, along with propaganda posters, remnants of the East German counterculture and segments of the Berlin Wall. So why is it in LA? According to founder Justinian Jampol, the geographic remove lends critical distance. Case in point: the Wende’s acquisition of East German ruler Erich Honecker’s personal papers, which Honecker requested be housed in a non-German institution.

raining

The Museum of Jurassic Technology

Don't be fooled by the name, this is not some kind of Spielbergian dinosaurland. It's far more interesting than that. Hidden behind an unassuming, windowless storefront, David Wilson's Museum of Jurassic Technology presents itself as a repository of curiosities, scientific wonders and artistic miracles. Which exhibits, if any, are bona fide? Which, if any, are satirical? A subversive, witty and brilliant enterprise, the museum challenges the very nature of what a museum is or should be, while also taking its place as one of the most fascinating attractions in the entire city.

Sports

Kirk Douglas Theatre

The Westside branch of the Center Theatre Group offers the company's most adventurous fare, along with intermittent collaborations with some of LA's smaller troupes. The theater itself was originally built as a cinema and retains its iconic old neon sign out front.

Studio

The Actors' Gang

Tim Robbins remains in charge of the Actors' Gang, the theater company he co-founded in the '80s. Productions remain hard-edged and presentational, and often rely on politically charged material. Performances take place in a century-old electricity substation.

Studio

Thinkspace Gallery

Committed to the promotion of emerging talent, this intimate and welcoming gallery distinguishes itself from the pack with its intriguing pop-artist exhibitions and jam-packed gallery openings. Thinkspace Art Gallery is committed to showcasing work that spans popular culture, graphic art, design and street art. Past exhibitions have featured creations by Karla Ortiz, Elliot Brown, Seamus Conley, Henrik AA. Uldalen and dozens more.
