There are a bunch of interesting galleries here, some are exceptional- with excellent choice of art and photos. There is also a nice restaurant to have lunch. Bergamot is very accessible and parking is easy. It makes for a nice couple of hours diversion.

See Lois Lambert Gallery--her store has a glorious assortment of unique and hilarious gifts. The last bohemian bastion of LA--long may it live

Once a month or so, I join my friends at Bergamot Station for lunch and visits to the various galleries. Generally, we share sandwiches and order one their fine soups and visit on the outside patio. Great Fun and the price is right.

Fun gallery openings. Function art gallery is full of really funky stuff from chairs made of wine corks and baby food jars to chandeliers made with glass bottles.

Love this spot. It is an authentic artists colony. Lots of unique galleries all in one spot. They are all very different. Love to spend day going to each one. And the Santa Monica Museum of Art is here too. Plenty of parking and a little cafe on site. Check hours before coming.

We stopped into this gem on our way to Santa Monica. We found the artists open and welcoming, the art amazing and varied in theme and medium, and the treasures vast. If we were not flying home, we would have purchased MUCH more! Definitely a stop for any art enthusiast, and there is even a cafe with adult beverages to... More

When I'm in NY I love walking in Chelsea going from art gallery to art gallery. There is nothing like it in the world. The closest you can get to that experience in southern California is Bergamot Station. There are many good galleries, a nice little cafe, and a few interesting stores. My favorite of the stores is the one... More
