From Instagram-worthy coffee shops to 3D food labs, these Los Angeles innovations demonstrate that the City of Angels has much more to offer than its sunny weather and Hollywood stars.

When it comes to food, Los Angeles has a wonderfully diverse culinary scene that draws on a variety of global influences. Adventurous foodies are sure to love the over-the-top creations found at shops like Donut Friend and GD Bro Burger, while those who appreciate the classics will find plenty to enjoy at hidden gems such as République and Salt & Straw. There is even a growing craft beer community led by cutting-edge companies such as Arts District Brewing.

Beyond food and drinks, there are a number of other Los Angeles innovations that take visitors beyond the Hollywood gates. Design-savvy visitors are likely to find themselves uncovering beautiful artisan treasures at Poketo, while art-lovers will be happy to get lost among The Broad's contemporary art exhibits. There is even a hybrid arcade called Button Mash where adults can play their favorite childhood games while sipping delicious craft beers.

All of these spots are especially noteworthy for those looking to immerse themselves in some of the trends highlighted during Trend Hunter’s Los Angeles innovation conference.
