Oakwood Venice

Sometimes called Ghost Town or the Oakwood Pentagon, this Venice neighborhood began as one of L.A.’s only black Westside, beach-adjacent communities. Venice founder Abbot Kinney initially set aside the pentagon-shaped area for homes for the workers who helped build his vision of the Italian city in Southern California. A number of original bungalows and homes have been restored and remodeled. Oakwood is adjacent to a block of Abbot Kinney Blvd. which GQ has named “the coolest block in America.” It also borders Google’s Los Angeles headquarters on Main Street, which is located in Frank Gehry’s “Binoculars” building. The neighborhood is primarily comprised of early 20th century bungalows, along with a few modest-sized mid-century two-story apartment buildings. Oakwood’s Electric Avenue offers an eclectic choice of cafes and eateries, some as trendy as those on Abbot Kinney. Nightlife is also available, including nightclubs and lounges featuring live music from jazz to rock and blues. Homes built after 2000 include unique architectural homes and eco-friendly two-story homes. Landscaping is often quirky and eco-friendly. Lots in Oakwood are larger than some other areas of Venice, with an average of 40′ by 135′ per single family lot. Oakwood artist studios are also featured as part of Venice’s Art Walk in the late spring/early summer.
