Fun doesn’t stop where the campus ends. Just a few blocks from the College, Uptown Whittier boasts cafes and restaurants, a movie theater, clothing stores, a farmer’s market, and dozens more shops for students to explore and enjoy. Here are just a few slices of Uptown life. What hangout will you discover? Unwind over a delicious latte at La Monarcha, Starbucks, Lift Coffee Roasters, or The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. (Because college life runs on coffee. So much coffee.) Catch the latest movies at Whittier Village Cinemas. ($5 all day on Tuesdays and Thursdays). Update your look at Melrose, Haute Mess, Ember and Stone, Laura's Boutique and more. (New school, new you, right?) Find your next jam at Lovell’s Records or your next ride at Legends Boardshop. Browse the shelves of Undercity Comics or Friends of the Whittier Public Library Bookstore. Grab delicious boba at Chillin' Tea House, sushi at Maki Yaki, tacos at La Chiva Jr., or pizza at Brickhouse. Expand your night life at The Whittier Brewing Company, The Bottle Room, The Commoner, or The 6740 (for students 21 and over). Savor the food of award-winning chefs at Poet Gardens or Colonia Publica . (Don’t forget the Instagram photo.) Surprise your friends with a dozen donuts from Winchell’s or the perfect gift from Local Fixture. Buy locally-grown produce at the weekly Farmer's Market, every Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
