What was once a gas station and later on a flower shop on the corner of Venice Boulevard has been transformed into a modern man cave—namely, surf culture, badass bikes and strong espresso. Bring your friends to marvel at Deus Ex Machina motorcycles handbuilt in-house, surfboards shaped at the Deus shop in Bali, and floor-to-ceiling art celebrating both of these noble pursuits. As I couldn’t fit a custom bike into my carry-on, I bought the book The Drive which comes in a limited edition with Deus bandana and hardcover sleeve. Grab a double shot from LA’s Handsome Coffee Roasters (they brew in the shop) and instead shop the selection of Raen Optics shades, Baxter boots, Tsovet watches or the Deus clothing line, which spans tees, sweats, board shorts and more.
