O’Neill House In 1978, Directly on 507 N. Rodeo Drive, Art Dealler Don  O’Neill began the construction of this beautiful house built as homage to Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi.  In a seeming tribute to its muse, it was not fully finished until after O’Neill’s death in 1998.  Today we can all enjoy  gazing at its facade and imagining the wonders the interiors must have.

Spadena House or  The Witch’s House

At the corner of Walden Drive and Carmelita is this very special site,  The house was designed by cinematic art director Harry Oliver.  Built in 1921 in west LA as offices for a film studio, it could have been a set piece of Oz.  The entire structure was moved to its present location in 1934 by the Spadena family.

Honorable Mention There were two spots we ran into randomly and really enjoyed.  We didn’t get to spend enough time at either to get a full vision, but  they both brightened our day.  If you’re in the area, they are definitely worth a look.

Chan Darae Thai Restaraunt

We stumbled into Chan Darae hungry, bordering on cranky.  We took a chance on Thai after our myriad of New York City experiences where the majority of Thai food is saturated with old oil.  To our pleasant surprise it was succulent, light and non-greasy, while allowing us to happily keep exploring L.A.!
