Alchemy Works

826 E. 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA , 90013



Opened in 2013 by Apolis’ Raan Patron and his wife, Lindsay, the Arts District’s Alchemy Works is much more than just a store. Functioning as a rotating gallery, an event venue, and a select shop, the multipurpose space draws in a distinctly design-conscious crowd who comes to browse both objects and art. The highly curated goods reflect West Coast ease and include everything from leather items from local designers to the occasional vintage Fiat. And as for the intriguing glass house perched high up in the corner? That’s Warby Parker’s Downtown digs.

Alchemy Works carries a lot of well designed modern wares—like stuff that’s actually cool. They support a lot of local designers, and you can pick up unique pieces you won’t be able to find anywhere else.
