Animal House – Retail For The People

Animal House

'Venice Beach's Best Kept Secret'


This Venice Beach staple is located in the arcade directly beneath the famous sign. Started back in the 70's because owner, Ronny Kleyweg, "wanted to meet girls," this store has been thriving ever since. They focus on high quality vintage and are a favorite by stylists and celebrities for a reason. Kurt Cobain's green mohair cardigan was purchased here along with many other iconic pieces of clothing. Folks have known Ron and Kaitlyn for years and if you are lucky you may get to hear a story or two from Ron. Because he's got some good ones. 

Appropriately sitting on Gear Patrol's list of Top 20 Vintage Menswear Stores in America, Animal House is one of the coolest stores around. And some of the nicest people you will meet. We were excited to help them grow their store with the addition of e-commerce and some strategic direction. Stop by the next time you're in Venice Beach.
