I’ve compiled for you, THE ultimate LA list of all the best Barbie inspired, pink aesthetic places to bring your Barbie girls to! Share this with a friend you’d like to party with and PIN the above image for reference later!
1). World of Barbie📍 395 Santa Monica Place
Barbie fanatics MUST stop into this Santa Monica popup before it leaves LA. Think: life -sized dream: camper, closet, kitchen, movie theater, rocket and living room! Life in plastic really IS fantastic! Think historical snippets of Barbie’s: life, career, and cars, (plus a million photogenic spots to snap a selfie)! Note-groups of 6 or more qualify for a discount. And evening “sips after sunset” special events for adults (only) are fun options too! For an extra fee, you can even create a customizable doll set. What a fun experience! Expect to spend about 60-90minutes here depending on how many pics you plan to take, how long you play in the ball pit, and whether you’re stopping for an outfit change in their bathroom.😆
2). Piink Pilates 📍 837 Traction Ave in Los Angeles
Get your Barbie dream body in the cutest pink studio ever!! Designed and led by pilates teacher, Chrissa Sparkles (don’t you love her name)?? it’s a high intensity fusion of mat pilates and strength training using (pink) Bala equipment for 45 minutes. It’s SO pretty in pink you won’t be able to resist taking some workout pics here. It’s a good thing that pictures are encouraged and time is even allotted before and after class for you to shoot for the gram. ‘Cuz if you don’t take a pic and share it with the world, were you even really there??
3). The Beverly Hills Hotel Polo Lounge & pool 📍 9641 Sunset Blvd, Beverly Hills
If you’re not willing to shell out top dollar for a hotel stay at the iconic, Beverly Hills Hotel, where their fabulous pink pool area resides, no worries. Just book an overpriced restaurant reservation instead at the Polo Lounge. 😆 Ask for one of their booths and you’ll be surrounded by palms and pink. It’s a dreamy combo, isn’t it? AND if you go soon, you’ll also be able to hit the Dior (pink) popup for an extra girly shopping adventure!
4). Pink wall at Paul Smith 📍 8221 Melrose Ave. LA
This iconic pink wall has been a pit stop for pictures before the days of Instagram and has blown up since. On any given day, you will undoubtedly see people posing there. It is actually estimated that over 55,000 people visit this wall every year! Why? Because it’s a massive, 20’, eye-catching pink wall, and it provides an irresistible, cheery backdrop. What Barbie lover wouldn’t appreciate that?
5). Le Coco Restaurant 📍 11901 Lakewood Blvd. Downey, CA
This pink restaurant combines the love of pink with the love of Chanel and provides the perfect meetup spot for any girly girl. We loved their brunch and were wowed by all the pretty in pink details and their unforgettable, pink mimosa tree. This inconspicuous little restaurant in a strip mall is the cutest little spot in the Inland Empire area to celebrate all things Barbie, or any birthday, bridal shower or bachelorette for that matter!
6). Pink & Boujee 📍 948 Crocker St Los Angeles, CA 90021
For authentic Mexican food with a pink twist, grab your girlfriends and go here! They’ve got everything from pink pancakes and pink glitter cappuccinos to pink tacos and nachos. And of course, you’ll find the requisite pink phone booth and floral pink entrance here with a Barbie pink interior to really set the mood.
7). Cafe Landwer (limited time Barbie themed menu) 📍 10250 Santa Monica Blvd.
This Mediterranean restaurant at Westfield’s Century City mall is serving up dollhouse (pink) hummus, glitz and glitter rose’, and pretty in pink waffles. Reservations needed.
8). Boulon D Amour 📍 1798 W Washington Blvd. Los Angeles 📍 2nd Fl Westfield Century City mall (small popup style cafe) 📍 319 Cannon Dr. Beverly Hills
The W. Washington Blvd location is the largest and most Instagramable of the 3 locations (the Century City location is almost like a little popup with cute mural wall (pictured below). And the Beverly Hills one is the newest and mid-sized of all 3. I need to go back to try their beautiful avocado toast topped with flowers!! But if you also agree that your coffee tastes better pink and when served in an aesthetic location, you’ll need to add this cute cafe to your bucketlist!
9). Loveshack Fancy 📍 8473 Melrose Place LA
If pink feminine decor and dresses are your vibe, a visit to this Loveshack Fancy boutique is a must. Even if you find you can’t afford the fashions, it’s worth a visit just to get inspiration and take a photo outside their floral facade.
10). Pink Palace📍Central LA, WEHO area (address confirmed upon booking)
Noted as one of the 10 Most Amazing Homes in the World on NETFLIX’s “Amazing Interiors,” this rentable, 534 sq. ft venue is perfect for your next pink photo shoot. Running at $150/hour (2 hr. minimum and video is extra), you have various rooms to shoot from which will guarantee some super girly content. Who else is dying to shoot here one day??
