Here at Point Blank we have schools spanning the globe. We’ve made our mark in London, Ibiza, Mumbai, Los Angeles and China. When joining a new school it’s always useful to know what’s in the area. Whether it’s grabbing some food, coffee or shopping, locating the nearby hotspots is a must to enhance your experience. Luckily for you here at Point Blank, we’ve got you entirely covered.
Today we aim our focus at our Point Blank Los Angeles location. LA is a city filled with an innumerable amount of great food, coffee shops, hang out spots, museums and more. Specifically, the Mid-Wilshire/La Brea area is filled with historical landmarks such as The El Rey Theatre, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, La Brea Tar Pits, and The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.
Situated in the Miracle Mile neighborhood, our new Point Blank Los Angeles site is a hub for thriving, talented music enthusiasts. The area is best known for its restaurants and rich Los Angeleno culture and is surrounded by a variety of places you’ll want to try.
Restaurants and Fast Food
As a student, food is more than likely to be an important part of your day. The area has plenty to offer in this case including a variety of both restaurants and fast food joints. If you’re in the mood for ramen, why not check out La Brea Ramen and Sushi. They offer Shaken Ramen, their Famous Black Ramen, and if you prefer sushi, their rolls are to die for. For those of you who prefer an American Brewhouse vibe, All Season Brewing Company is the place for you. Having taken over the historic Firestone tire shop, they offer delicious food, drinks, and even have Skee-Ball! However, if tacos are more of what you’re craving, Trejo’s Tacos is just across the street from us. They have everything from carnitas and chicken tikka tacos to cauliflower, mushroom asada, and jackfruit tacos for everyone that’s vegan or vegetarian out there.
As fast food restaurants go they are usually the same everywhere but if you need to grab something quick in the area your choices include Taco Bell, McDonalds, Jack in the Box, and more.
When there is work to do coffee always adds an extra pep in your step to get you through the day. Fortunately, our Point Blank LA Miracle Mile campus is surrounded by great spots to grab a coffee. Black Dog Coffee is best known for their Caffe Cubano and has been a part of the Miracle Mile neighborhood for nearly 20 years. If you prefer more of a classic Los Angeles cafe, then you definitely want to check out Lazy Rose Cafe. This coffee shop is Black and Veteran-Owned and has a full espresso and pastry menu — making it the perfect place to grab a quick bite after class.
In addition to the various places to eat, the Miracle Mile neighborhood also has several other attractions to check out. There are plenty of places to do your grocery shopping such as Trader Joes and Yummy.com. If you feel in the mood to check out a museum or two, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and The Academy of Motion Pictures are both must-see LA museums. If you want to spend the day shopping or go to a farmers market, then make sure to check out The Grove, which will fulfill all of your shopping needs.
