Dog owners, art lovers, grooms, and coffee snobs will find what they need on this eclectic square block in Westside Costa Mesa.
Hydrant Pet Hotel
At this upscale doggy daycare, pets are pampered in huge indoor-outdoor play spaces complete with splash pads and a wading pool. The luxury extends to overnight canine guests who lounge on memory-foam beds in private rooms as relaxing music plays. Grooming and pet taxi services are also available. 776 W. 17th St., 949-280-2200, hydrantpethotel.com
Grooms can choose the style, fabric, liner, and buttons on a custom tuxedo here for their big day. Like a bridal salon for men, it’s filled with clubby leather chairs and even hosts “fitting parties” for groomsmen, with beer, whiskey, and music. It’s not just for wedding parties, either: They’ll design a custom suit for any occasion. 765 W. 17th St., 949-281-1868, groomsgrotto.com
Employees at this busy shop—which we honored in our 2017 “Best Of” issue—hand-cut and join custom solid-wood frames and shadow boxes, along with the mats and glass used inside them, which allows them to create frames for all types of objects, even ones with unconventional shapes. 1671 Placentia Ave., 949-791-8780, bestframing.com
Wilson Coffee Roasting
The family-run business roasts organic, single-origin, fair-trade beans from around the world for popular local restaurants, including Taco María and Lola Gaspar. It also offers beans, house-made blends, and fresh cold brew, plus a small selection of organic black, green, and herbal teas to the public. 1651 Placentia Ave., 949-574-9444, wilsoncoffeeroasting.com
