The first friday of every month is what we call "First Friday" on Abbot Kinney Blvd. Shops stay open late, some have entertainment, food trucks line the street and people come from all around just to enjoy the atmosphere.
September boasts the "Abbot Kinney Street Festival" in which hundreds of local artisans set up booths along the street, while there is entertainment as well: music, kids areas, food trucks, art shows, rock climbing wall, beer gardens.
This is a quiet street and we expect our guests to be respectful of our neighbors and their families.
