It was Friday night. My husband and I were hungry and we wanted to go somewhere fun or at least someplace new. The neighborhood of Los Feliz is not new by Los Angeles standards, nor is it new for us, but we hadn’t been there in many years so we headed east to check out the scene on Vermont Avenue.
It seems bohemian chic never goes out of fashion on this side of town. Hipsters still hang out where the Onyx cafe once was. People park their scooters on the sidewalk and line up to see a movie at the Loz Feliz Theater. There’s even an independent bookstore that keeps its doors open late into the night. Squaresville, a vintage clothing store, looked very interesting. Need I tell you the people watching is fab?
Los Feliz is also known for its night clubs. Sadly, over the last few years some historic dance clubs have closed, leaving only the venerable Dresden open for late night carousing. But this is L.A., and new hot spots are popping up in the ashes. One day maybe I’ll check them out, but this Friday night my husband and I were more interesting in a meal than hitting the trendiest bars, so we stopped at a chic looking 24 hour diner called Fred 62. After a very tasty meal that included an unusual looking chicken pot pie we wandered around the area peering into store windows.
