It’s been a hot minute since our last art show at 1700 Naud, so we’re having another one because we love to stay busy.

We also love art, in particular, our exhibiting artist Andrew Cortes’ art. The LA native’s artistic practice aims to visually depict the invisible, unattainable, and often elusive experiential-flow in life. On october 13th, we opened his show titled No Se (Spanish for ‘I don’t know’), an appropriate title that also answers any questions you might have about our open hours, our plans for the future, and what the hell is going on with the world. So come down, take a look at this beautiful show and celebrate the bliss of ignorance with us. We're open mon-fri 1-6pm.

To schedule an appointment, call us at 323 612 6009 / email info@1700naud.com.


Well. The hundreds certainly made our humble gallery look way cool for their Spitset earlier this month. Great sets all around by Alexander Spit, Artists G Perico, Guapdad 4000, and Parisa.

screening of "Minding the Gap"

“Minding The Gap” is an award winning Hulu documentary that has done extremely well in the festival run, so you bet we were honored to host a screening here at 1700 Naud with director Bing Liu.

“Three young men bond together to escape volatile families in their Rust Belt hometown. 
As they face adult responsibilities, unexpected revelations threaten their decade-long friendship.”


We threw a party to celebrate the launch of the Pabst new art can, you know the brand new one with japanese writing. Every year, PBR selects one artist to redesign their can and Gaijin was the featured artist in 2018. He designed the new mural outside 1700 Naud, which you should definitely come by to check out, and spent time with a bunch of other artists from the Bloody Gums collective and A Shop Called Quest. It was a night dedicated to Gaijin's design, to making art and to staying hungry.


We had the pleasure of hosting Balaram Stack and New Era for the premiere of their new surf film, produced by Monster Children.

The piece is exclusive to Monster Children this week, so go over to monsterchildren.com to watch it in full.



The greatest thing about having nice walls is being able to put nice framed art on it, and turning nice walls into supporters of art. Literally. That's what we did with the photography of Cameron Strand. Our first pop-up ever was a one-wall-one weekend photography exhibit showcasing some of Monster Children's favorite images by the photographer.

Lev Merka played a DJ set entirely out of cassette tapes and the live show by Blanco Niño sounded oh so good.
