Best Hole-in-the-Wall Art Gallery for Celeb Spotting Los Angeles 2013 

Subliminal Projects

Dodger Stadium isn't the only Elysian Park Avenue attraction that draws a massive, star-studded crowd. Subliminal Projects, housed in Shepard Fairey's unassuming Studio Number One creative firm at the corner of Sunset Boulevard, is a contemporary exhibition space Fairey opened in 2003 with his wife, Amanda. A decade later, Subliminal Projects remains relevant, with recent group and solo exhibitions that have reimagined Boy Scouts, riffed on ecstasy, captured the gaudy culture of nail art and represented Los Angeles in black-and-white woodcut illustrations. With valet service, a DJ and extraordinarily long lines for free booze, exhibition openings at Subliminal feel like exclusive house parties attended by celebrity art collectors, including Moby, Billy Idol, Rose McGowan and, of course, Fairey himself. 1331 W. Sunset Blvd., Echo Park, 90026. (213) 213-0078, subliminalprojects.com. —Jennifer Swann

  • The Best L.A. Costumes of 2014 (So Far)
    It's no secret that SoCal knows what it's doing when it comes to make-up and costume design, (hello, Hollywood!) so it makes sense that we would also have the world's best cosplay. Here are our picks for the best of 2014 (so far).
  • Daw Yee: Mission of Burma
    L.A. has a very small pool of Burmese restaurants; among them, Daw Yee does not boast the most extensive menu. Nonetheless, Daw Yee, in Monterey Park, is fascinating for one big reason — namely, that it gives L.A. something unusual: a Burmese restaurant that caters to younger diners.
