Doesn’t it seem like the ’70s are totally in right now? From fashion to decor, many elements from the groovy decade have made a major comeback. Take Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach, California for example. Back in 1971, the charming destination was a pedestrian-friendly shopping village. Nearly 50 years later, it’s been tastefully restored and brought to modern day by DJM Capital Partners. Once again, the village is a highly appealing destination for locals and visitors alike.
Boasting dramatic views of Newport Harbor, it’s more than a shopping center — Lido Marina Village really does highlight the best of Southern California. Lindsay Parton (President of DJM Capital Partners) explained, “Our idea in redeveloping Lido Marina Village was to create something very special. We wanted to provide this discerning, local audience a sophisticated group of stores, restaurants and experiences that reflect the lifestyle of this idyllic spot in Orange County.” With Rue-favorite shops like Jenni Kayne, Elyse Walker, Clare V, Steven Alan, Alchemy Works Harbor House, and more — not to mention exquisite waterfront dining — it’s a place we’d happily spend a Saturday.
The best part about this Orange County destination is that it’s always evolving. In the last few weeks, Bixby & Ball, Yolk, and Sugar Paper LA have all set up shop. For a look at the property (and a glimpse inside a few of the stores!), start the slideshow.
