Need a Fez for a crazy hat party? Going to a 1950s or 1960s party? They have actual vintage clothes from the era if you wanted to be more subtle in addition to costumes from the era.
Need a pair of suspenders or a nice purse for a vintage party? They have period accurate stuff that is less costume-like.

From their website:

HISTORY
Ozzie Dots has been in Los Angeles since 1985, however the store originated in Silverlake in the early 70′s as Aaardvarks Odd Ark, which was located near Soap Plant/ Wacko’s first store on Sunset. The store was taken over by its manager who had a passion for costume and mixed it with vintage clothing and it became Ozzie Dots.

In 1994 Ozzie Dots moved from it’s original Sunset Junction location to where we are now located in the Los Feliz Village on Hollywood Blvd.

As history is known to repeat, we are once again next door to Soap Plant /Wacko / La Luz de Jesus on a dynamic street featuring many businesses, restaurants and bars.

THE NAME
Many people ask where on earth the name “Ozzie Dots” came from? The idea came from the logo which featured a bulldog named “OD” who was wearing a bandana with polka dots. Somehow the name “Ozzie Dots” seemed perfect.
All in the Family
The owners brothers also owned or still own stores in Los Angeles independently of Ozzie Dots. Hidden Treasures, a cherished vintage clothing store in Topanga Canyon is independently operated and owned by the youngest brother in the family. In addition, the oldest brother in the family was part owner with Ron Kleyweg at Animal House located in Venice Beach, although he sold his part of the business years ago to Ron and now runs a collection of beachfront cottages called Angelinos Sea Lodge on Holmes Beach in Anna Maria Island, Florida.

Yuca’s on Hollywood: 4666 Hollywood Boulevard
Mon-Sat: 8am – 9pm, Sun: 10am – 4pm
From their website:
Mom’s dream of having a little stand where people would flock to buy her good Yucatán home cooking became a reality on April 1, 1976. Shortly thereafter Yuca’s received its first write-up by the Los Angeles Examiner’s Food Critic; it proved to be the start of an amazing adventure with food that has now lasted over 3 decades.
Originally, Mom and Dad worked with my brother, Jaime, who took to flagging cars down and offering them his innovative, “Try it you’ll like it or you won’t pay” promotion. Many people took him up on the offer. They all paid.
Over the years, Yuca’s has been fortunate to receive great press from various publications and media outlets in the U.S. and other parts of the world. Receiving the James Beard Award on May 2, 2005 was the culmination of the accolades received – an amazing honor in the category “America’s Classics” that put the icing on Mom’s dream.
Our greatest achievement, however, is hearing our (famous or not) customers say, “This is the best burrito I have ever tasted!”

And where else in LA can you get a classic straight-razor shave?!

The name of the place may evoke a chuckle to some but their haircuts are no joke.

You will feel like you stepped back in time as soon as you enter and flip through vintage magazines while you wait.

One thing is for sure, gentlemen: You will look GOOD when Sweeney Todd’s Barber Shop is through with you.

Check out their website for their history, prices and online reservations, otherwise, just walk in and shoot the breeze with the other guys while you wait.
