The LAB - A Unique "Anti-Mall" in COSTA MESA

Discover an artistic community of one-of-a-kind shops and services at this self-titled "Anti-Mall" in the heart of vibrant Costa Mesa. Wander the walkways and halls of this indoor-outdoor shopping area that was transformed from a night-vision goggle factory into a popular destination for arts and entertainment. Explore the walk-through community art exhibit at the ARTery to see a variety of original works from emerging local and regional artists. Grab a cup of sustainable coffee at Cafecito Organico or dine on seasonal organic menu at Seabirds Kitchen. Pick up vintage vinyl at Creme Tangerine Records or peruse visual art publications at the As Issued bookstore. From apparel to furniture, the LAB is a perfect antidote to the regular mall scene.
