Style scout: Up all night

The reigning hub of slouchy east side cool isn’t a weekly dance party or a divey new bar, but Intelligentsia, a Sunset Junction coffee shop. It hawks the smoothest lattes around, but is also a fantastic people-watching perch. The clothes may broadcast “I just threw this on,” but we know better: It takes effort to look like a rock star/superstar B-boy/emerging author before 11 a.m.
