Local Venice Beach Events
Welcome to First Fridays on Abbot Kinney
The Coolest Block in America
Located in the heart of the Venice neighborhood just a short walk from any of our Venice Beach Hotels is Abbot Kinney Blvd. Recently dubbed "the coolest block in America" by GQ magazine, this boutique lined beach shopping haven has a unique and sophisticated seaside vibe all it's own. With stores in Craftsman-style houses and beach bungalows, the street invites you to linger and explore.
Every first Friday of the month, Abbot Kinney Blvd transforms into a late-night hub of activity, with stores open late, a delicious array of food trucks and live music and entertainment filling the streets.
The evening runs from 6 - 10 PM with all the local merchants joining together to feature the best artists, gifts, products and music. The night attracts all ages, with a real community feel that truly represents what Venice is all about.
