How to Shop LA’s Hottest Shops Like a Local

If you're in the mood for retail therapy, Los Angeles has plenty of hot spots to keep you busy. Besides visiting local QUAY stores to find shady fits, make sure to hit up iconic shops in each Los Angeles neighborhood when you're in the area. From beloved eateries to cute boutiques in Los Angeles, we'll give you the deets to plan your LA shopping itinerary like a local. 

Silver Lake/Echo Park

A great fit for Silver Lake’s creative and eclectic spirit, Mohawk General Store is perfect for browsing casual high fashion — there, you'll find a thoughtfully curated selection that includes both local designers and international fashion houses. Steps away, grab a fresh brew from Intelligentsia after picking out your favorite looks. 


If you love the model off-duty vibe, downtown LA shopping won't disappoint. DTLA is one of the most stylish spots in Los Angeles, home to both the Fashion and Arts Districts. Visit Row DTLA to peek at stores like Bodega, where you can enjoy vibrant art while browsing streetwear. Want to enjoy more art and design? Stop by Hennessey + Ingalls Bookstore after browsing museums and galleries in the nearby Art District. 


Along with world-famous landmarks such as the Dolby Theatre, Hollywood is also home to some of Los Angeles' best stores. Drop by local favorites like Amoeba Music to grab records for your collection and Iguana Vintage Clothing to scoop up throwback Hollywood finds. And FYI: There's a QUAY storefront on Hollywood & Highland steps away from the Walk of Fame. 

LA Vibes


Home to the Sunset Strip, WeHo features a lively community known for its music, nightclub, and design scenes. If you're hunting down current looks, check out shops on Sunset Boulevard — browse everything from Kith for footwear to the flagship Fred Segal for cool LA looks. The nearby La Brea neighborhood is also home to some of the best thrift stores in LA. If you love a steal, discover treasures at Jet Rag and Wasteland to level up your haul with retro pieces for every occasion

Beverly Hills

Beverly Hills is an obligatory stop for Los Angeles shopping, whether you're interested in world-famous fashion houses or one-of-a-kind boutiques. Into the former? The Golden Triangle features the best of luxury retail. For a more outside-the-box, low-key experience, check out nearby stores on Brighton Way, such as the vintage fashion store What Goes Around Comes Around

The Valley 

Just north of Hollywood and Beverly Hills is the San Fernando Valley, which is known for its famous movie studios. QUAY's Glendale location is also right in the Valley's Glendale Galleria. After getting your sunnies shopping in, check out the rest of the mall, plus The Americana at Brand shopping center across the street. If you're more interested in hidden gems, drop by stores like The Iliad Bookshop in NoHo and Vixen by Micheline Pitt in Burbank. 

Santa Monica 

Santa Monica's beachside location makes it perfect for a breezy shopping experience. For gourmet food and charming boutiques, hit up Brentwood Country Mart, which is home to local faves like the Diesel bookstore and Sweet Rose Creamery. You'll also find storefronts for designers like James Perse and Malia Mills. After all your Santa Monica shopping, you can even visit our QUAY location just 20 miles away in Westfield Topanga


Visit stylish boutiques in Malibu for vacation-ready fits after soaking up some sun at the beach. To get in all your shopping, check out Malibu Village, a hub of boutiques, eateries, and services. To fuel your shopping ventures, grab an espresso drink and treat from Marmalade Cafe or dine with seafood from Broad Street Oyster Company. In the Village, browse modern 'fits at Wittmore and beach chic apparel at The Alcove
