Nestled in the heart of Venice Beach, Abbot Kinney Boulevard is one of Los Angele’s hippest areas for unique shopping, featuring home-grown artists and designers in a mix of modern chic and old school. We sipped the most delicious gin and tonics and spoke with Dr. Hoff of Hoff Optometry on Abbott Kinney to find out the very best in the neighborhood.
