One Down Dog Family

Start your Morning the Right Way with Yoga in Silver Lake

Yoga is an enduring craze in the City of Angels, but not all yoga studios are created equal. One Down Dog offers a variety of yoga classes, dance parties, workshops and more. Will all the possibilities, you can find your groove and the right class to help jump start your mornings. At One Down Dog, you are not just a yogi-in-training, you are a member of the ODD family. With a specially curated playlist to accompany your yoga class, kindhearted instructors and the cutest mascot (a mini-schnauzer named Patrick) to greet you at the door, there is no better way to spend your Sunday morning – or any other morning, afternoon, evening, etc.

Have a Delicious Brunch in Hollywood.

One of the best things about Los Angeles is its seemingly limitless number of amazing weekend brunch spots. Standing above the rest is Eat This Café , which everyone should immediately add to their brunch bucket list. The café is only a ten-minute drive from One Down Dog, so you will not be wasting too much time stuck in weekend traffic. At Eat This Café, you can indulge in bottomless mimosas and the most delicious crab cake benedict you will ever try. They’ve also got sundry items to satisfy sweet-toothed patrons.

Chris Burden’s ‘Urban Light’

Channel your Inner Art Critic at LACMA.

Los Angeles County Museum of Art is a local cultural staple, and also happens to be the perfect backdrop for artsy Instagram photos, with Chris Burden’s Urban Light and Michael Heizer’s Levitated Mass. LACMA is home to numerous and eclectic collections, including modern and contemporary European and American art, Asian art and Latin American art. Whether you would like to bask in the sun while enjoying LACMA’s outdoor art or cool off in the galleries, there is a masterpiece for everyone.

Head to Koreatown for ‘Awesome Coffee’

You’ve had good coffee. You’ve had great coffee. But have you had Awesome Coffee? With mismatched hip furniture and a bright, airy space overlooking Wilshire Boulevard, Awesome Coffee is the best place to unwind after a trip at LACMA. This hip coffee shop provides great no-nonsense coffee, with iced drinks served in mason jars. For non-coffee guests, they also provide a selection of teas and delicious desserts. You can never go wrong with a very berry waffle, which is a large waffle topped with berries and liquid nitrogen ice cream. It is the perfect snack to cool you off after a day under the potent SoCal sun.

Hang out in Little Tokyo’s Blue Whale Lounge.

To conclude your Sunday in L.A, head to Blue Whale Lounge on Downtown’s coolest named street (Astronaut E S Onizuka) for drinks and jazz. This lounge provides a modern-yet-intimate atmosphere to unwind with a craft cocktail, bottle of beer, or glass of wine. Check its online calendar beforehand for its schedule of live performances or, if you are daring enough, show up to the venue without prior research for a complete surprise. Ending a Sunday at Blue Whale Lounge will prepare any jazz or culture lover for the fast-approaching workweek.
