Could This Be LA's Most Mind-Altering Block?

View LA's Most Mind Altering Block in a larger map

WHERE ELSE in Los Angeles can you chill out with 4 marijuana dispensaries (plus a hydroponics supply store), drown your sorrows at 6 wine, beer and liquor establishments (plus 2 liquor stores), and get your blood pumping again with caffeine from 2 coffee shops (plus a brownie bakery) , all without getting back in your car?

Welcome to Atwater Village. Not too long ago we thought we only had 2 marijuana dispensaries but AV News now lists 4 of them.

And they're all on Glendale Blvd., mixed in with the depressant vendors (55 Degree Wine, Bill's Liquor) and stimulant slingers (Kaldi Coffee).

Is it any wonder we also enjoy so many art galleries?

I love this street. It's now got something on Larchmont, Sunset, Hillhurst, you name it. This section of Glendale Blvd. in Atwater Village is the best thoroughfare in the city. The adjacent neighborhood's peacefulness balances the hedonism suggested by the many "mind altering" establishments.

You can also get quite altered on Los Feliz between The Tam, The Griffin, The Roost and The Bigfoot!

I love my neighborhood...

Love your graphic! Then you can have a nightcap at Club Tee Gee.

the roost is the best place to alter yourself.

This may is my tenth anniversary of living in Atwater Village. To say it's changed would be an understatement. Woot Woot!

How could you leave out the most mind-altering of spots as THE CRYSTAL MATRIX!!! That place is so groovy with all its expensive and weird crystals and oils. Far out man.

Good one, Emily and Steve.

I added Crystal Matrix to the map.

Also, Atwater Hydroponics. Duh!
