America's Best Cities for Hipsters
No. 18 Los Angeles
In general, voters found Angelenos to be stylish and camera-ready, rather than quirky. For a bar scene and live music without any Hollywood flash, head to Echo Park, near Silver Lake, where you can hear cutting-edge bands at The Echo and The Echoplex, or shop for tunes the old-school way at Origami Vinyl. Or head to Eagle Rock, south of Pasadena, for a cup of joe at coffee shop Pat & Lorraine’s—the spot where A-list hipster Quentin Tarantino wrote Pulp Fiction.
