You’ll be able to take a train to LAX years before you’ll be able to take a gondola to Dodger Stadium—but you can actually step inside a prototype of the latter right now. The Los Angeles Aerial Rapid Transit (or LA ART) gondola project is looking to...
Known across the San Gabriel Valley for delicious, budget-friendly sushi, Yama Seafood has now softly opened a second location in Mar Vista, with Japanese market items, snacks and drinks in tow. The longtime quick-service counter and mini-mart—one of Time Out’s favorite hidden gems in the 626—debuted its new Westside location...

Nothing says “I love you” like picking someone up from LAX on a weekend evening. The airport’s car-clogged loop ranks high on the list of Los Angeles traffic nightmares—though it’ll hopefully be an avoidable one with the arrival of a new automated train system. LAX’s...
The recently completed (and, controversially, recently often temporarily closed) Sixth Street Bridge has ignited all sorts of conversations in Los Angeles about who this city’s streets should belong to. But just up the 101, there’s another project readying to make some pedestrian-first enhancements on one of L.A.’s most, let’s say, unique streets.
UPDATE: As Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations begin to decline, L.A. County has decided it will not reimplement its indoor mask mandate. However, as the transmission level still remains high, Public Health still strongly advises that Angelenos wear masks in indoor settings. Though L.A. is still in the CDC’s “high” community...
From the moment you walk in the door, the aloha vibes are strong at King's Hawaiian Bakery & Restaurant in Torrance. Mochi doughnuts, rainbow-hued paradise cakes and more variations of the international company's signature bread than one could dream of grace the bakery section at the entrance. A giant pineapple statue welcomes patrons to the cavernous dining room, where servers in Hawaiian shirts navigate around a floor-to-ceiling tropical aquarium to serve island staples like loco moco and spam musubi, plus French toast made with King's Hawaiian sweet rolls.
In yet another retro-cool comeback for the area, the Tail o’ the Pup is back up and running at 8512 Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. After years of back and forth, the quirkily shaped hot dog stand made its grand debut today at its new address, located right next to Shake Shack. The new Pup comes complete with indoor-outdoor seating, menu additions that include beer and wine and an extra dose of plaque-commemorated history: In 1971, the Doors recorded their hit song “L.A. Woman” in the same building the expanded eatery now occupies.
We still don’t have a clue what Nope is really about only days away from its release, but we can at least tell you all about one of the mysterious Jordan Peele film’s sets: a fictional theme park that’s been relocated to an actual Hollywood-adjacent theme park.
Maybe it’s been a while since you’ve worn a face mask. Maybe you never gave one up at all. In either case, it’s looking increasingly likely you’ll be required to wear one indoors again very soon. On Thursday, Los Angeles County entered the CDC’s “high” community...
Conrad Los Angeles and the Grand are bringing Bunker Hill closer to its pedestrian-friendly potential
Making plans atop Bunker Hill almost always involves an “…and then what?” You’ve scored reservations for the Broad… but then where can you walk to afterwards that doesn’t involve hoofing it all the way downhill toward Pershing Square? You have tickets to a show at the Walt Disney Concert… but then where can you grab a drink?
Like many Angelenos, I think a lot about leaving L.A.—temporarily, of course, just for a road trip. The call of the open road is one of Southern California’s most romantic allures: If you can manage to escape the thunderdome of L.A.’s tense, traffic-choked freeways, there’s an entire state’s worth of wilderness waiting for you.
Two years before it hosts the Summer Olympics, Los Angeles will host yet another major international sports competition: the 2026 FIFA World Cup. Or rather, it’ll cohost the soccer competition along with 15 other cities in North America. And technically, it won’t even be within the City of Los Angeles but rather in Inglewood at the massive SoFi Stadium, which just hosted this year’s Super Bowl and is set to make an appearance in the 2028 Olympics, too.
Get ready to bombard Bowser and his Koopalings with a bunch of shells, because a real-life Mario Kart ride is coming to Universal Studios Hollywood. “Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge” will be the centerpiece attraction at the upcoming Super Nintendo World, which is now due to open in early 2023 (the last update from the theme park had targeted a broader 2023 window).
Who’s had the toughest commute in all of L.A.? Sorry 405 stalwarts, but it’s the Space Shuttle Endeavour. It was built in Palmdale, flew about 123 million miles around the Earth and then eventually returned home for its retirement, where it was jubilantly paraded across city streets and into its final resting place at the California Science Center.
Though charging times continue to get quicker, topping off your electric car battery still isn’t nearly as snappy as a stop at the gas station. So maybe you scroll through your phone to pass the time or stroll over to a grocery story—or, if these Tesla plans become a reality, you grab a bite to eat and watch a drive-in movie.
Paying for groceries with your phone or watch might already be easy, but Amazon now wants you to pay with a swipe of your palm. In another round of potential privacy-encroaching convenience, the tech giant has rolled out its palm recognition payment service, Amazon One, in two Southern California Whole Foods locations (Silver Lake and Irvine), with plans to add capability to the organic grocery store’s Playa Vista location in the weeks to come. The device creates a unique palm signature for each user, which is then saved for future purchases.
Pure, unbridled Chickenjoy has come to Downtown L.A., where a brand new Jollibee location has just opened. Located at 729 Seventh Street across from the Bloc outdoor shopping center, the international Filipino fast food chain will offer Angelenos a more centrally located outpost to get their fried chicken and sweet spaghetti fix. The brand already has seven L.A. County locations in East Hollywood, Eagle Rock, Alhambra, Panorama City, Torrance, Carson and Artesia. The Downtown location will also offer delivery through DoorDash.
Music festival season is here with all of its euphoria and exhaustion—and you can expect a bit more of both as the L.A. area’s definitive hip-hop and EDM fest tacks on an extra day. HARD Summer has officially announced its 2022 lineup, as well as the addition of...
Two iconic SoCal purveyors of long waits and best-in-class hospitality are joining forces: Disneyland and Din Tai Fung. Though there’s no official opening date, the Downtown Disney shopping district (situated just outside the actual theme park) will soon reveal a new Anaheim outpost of the Taiwanese restaurant group. The arrival of the xiaolongbao specialist is easily the splashiest addition to the Disneyland food scene in ages.
You’re probably getting a little wary of all of the “immersive” art shows that’ve swept through Los Angeles, and the organizers of “Street Art Alive” feel it too. “We come from the art world and every time I see these [immersive shows], they’re these commercial things,” says Wayne Fernandez, general manager at Magic Box L.A., the event space at Downtown’s the Reef. “You get there and it’s like, I feel my soul being sucked out of me. But you know, we were very careful to make this more than just that.”
