BRÅVES

Enigmatic Los Angeles-based dark electro-pop trio BRÅVES took the internet by storm in 2016 with a string of stirring EPs and music videos that challenged the norms of the art-pop landscape.  Since then, BRÅVES have been refining their sound, aesthetic, and approach, and are poised to shock the system yet again with their debut full-length album.

Cafe Stella
"Best decor - African themed sorta kinda. Never seen anything quite like it. Totally subtle too. Best craft cocktails. The Coastline is a favorite drink. Jericho's favorite drink is a Manhattan, Thorald likes whiskey neat, and Johnny likes top shelf tequila."  —  BRÅVES

Bar Nine
"Best coffee in town is Bar Nine in Culver City. Order a Flat White, a strong 3/4 latte. They roast in house and only serve the best beans. The atmosphere is perfect."  —  BRÅVES

Griffith Park Observatory
Griffith Observatory sits on the south-facing slope of Mount Hollywood in Griffith Park and provides a wide array of space- and science-related displays and exhibitions entirely for free to the public. "We don’t know if it’s underrated but, we were just admiring Griffith Observatory last night. Truly a timeless structure and when lit up at night, a beacon of hope for humanity in the City of Angels."  —  BRÅVES

Hollywood Forever Cemetery
The Hollywood Forever Cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in Los Angeles, and is the final resting place of some of the city's most significant cultural icons.  The cemetery also hosts many cultural events, including music concerts and summer movie screenings. "We saw Bon Iver perform here at dawn. Everyone stayed the night in the cemetery and then Justin and co. took the stage at dawn. There’s something unsettling yet surprisingly chill about sleeping amongst the dead and waking to a life-bringing force such as music."  —  BRÅVES
