Finding the right grown-up glasses today can be a chore, but if you venture to one of the three locations of Hotel De Ville Vintage Eyewear, ye of little sight will find yourselves richly rewarded. Here you will find an incredibly satisfying selection of optical fashion in an intimate setting that is even cooler than wearing frames filled with window glass. The store features contemporary styles and modern imports from design capitals across the globe, but its specialty is the high-quality selection of glasses older (and more charming) than your grandparents. Although not cheap, Hotel De Ville’s low-pressure atmosphere, awesomely helpful staff and impeccable selection make it worthwhile. The store also carries the hottest choices for sunglasses imaginable. 7911 Rosewood Ave., 7422 Beverly Blvd., 4624 Hollywood Blvd. (323) 664-1462 —Anna Jones
