We’ve moved back down to Southern California and are loving the “winter” weather here! We’ll still be covering San Francisco and our favorite international destinations (of course!), as well as more Southern California goodness. Best of all, our new HQ, just outside Los Angeles, has got it all: opulent chandeliers, leopard skin carpets, computer controlled smart home features galore, and a secret garden filled with roses, meandering paths, citrus fruit, and climbing vines filled with flowers! More photos to come once we get everything organized and designed out. But for now, this tiny garden snippet. Have a great weekend Culture Vixens!

Top 10 Afternoon Tea Spots in Los Angeles

Culture Vixen Wheatley Wintibaugh Afternoon Tea Los Angeles 01 Top 10 Afternoon Tea Spots in Los Angeles travel top articles los angeles food

Good afternoon tea spots are hard to find. Los Angeles has a diverse collection of tea houses that range from traditional English to sleek and modern—you just have to know where to look. All the classics are present, from luxury hotels to Asian-inspired tea rooms. Here are our top 10 favorite spots:

10. Tudor House, Santa Monica

This Santa Monica tea room is classic English, casual, and perfect for tea followed by some beach time or shopping at Third Street Promenade. You won’t be fawned over by white glove waiters, nor hear harpists strum. Instead you can relax, enjoy classic English fare and pastries, then grab a pint at the English pub next door.

The Blind Barber speakeasy, by Tyson Wintibaugh.

Along Washington Boulevard in Culver City is a nondescript barber shop. Step inside and you’ll likely see customers getting spruced up in the barber chair. But head on to the back of the joint and give a knowing nod to the man by the unmarked white door and you’ll find yourself inside a hidden corridor behind the barber shop.

All across Los Angeles, street artist Paige Smith is making the city sparkle. With faux paper geodes that is. And lots of unexpected shapes that represent crystals, quartz, and other mineral formations normally found in nature.

Baleen: An Oceanic Dining Odyssey

Located among the lapping waves and pelicans in Redondo Beach, California is one of South Bay’s best kept dining secrets. Lined with palm trees and overlooking a quiet stretch of the marina, Baleen, named for a type of whale, feels miles apart from the bustle of Los Angeles, but chic enough to be a major player on the restaurant scene.

My absolute favorite place to take out of town guests in Los Angeles day or night is Griffith Observatory. Nothing can beat the location, with sweeping vistas of the Hollywood sign and endless panoramas of the entire city, all laid out in front of you. It doesn’t get more iconic than this.
