District 5 is known for its amazing restaurant scene down Atlantic Ave with new hot spots like Wood & Salt Tavern and Sushi Nikkei, alongside staples like Lola’s Mexican Cuisine and (one of my personal favorites) Dutch’s Brewhouse. You could spend a week eating your way up and down the main drag on Atlantic, but there is even more to this lovely district than fantastic spots for grub. https://www.lbhomeliving.com/bestoflb2022/

On the corner of Orange Avenue and Cartagena Drive sits an unassuming little spot that has become a staple in the local community. Stalks and Blooms Florist serves up some of the most beautiful flower arrangements in the game. I discovered this shop when a friend of mine arrived at a last-minute brunch with an expertly crafted bouquet. It was hard to believe she had gotten such a professional looking bunch of flowers so last minute and that’s when she let me in on her little secret, Stalks and Blooms. Not only do they have beautiful, fresh arrangements daily, they also serve all of Long Beach with delivery available to help out on both the happiest or the most difficult days of your life. You cannot go wrong with their Designer’s Choice bouquet which uses the freshest flowers available that day.
One of the most sought-after recommendations between friends is for a good nail tech. Look no further than Eüca Beauty Lounge. Not only do they offer tons of beauty services from manicures to microblading and Hydrafacials, they have one of the most welcoming environments around. Inside the lounge is calming with plants and clean lines, which paired with the exceptional service from staff is unbeatable relaxation. So, whether you are stopping by for a quick eye brow wax or a day of pampering you will find a little bit of peace at Eüca Beauty.
