Guide to Melrose

Things to Do in Melrose

View Map

With an exciting mix of high-end designers and kitschy boutiques, Melrose Avenue is an LA fashion destination. The strip spans the four blocks between La Brea and La Cienaga and is packed with well-known stores like Marc Jacobs, Betsey Johnson and Diesel as well as smaller shops like Bird Boutique.

Celebrities, locals and tourists alike can be found shopping at Diane Von Furstenberg and Vera Wang or dining at Hatfield’s. While the brands are on the same caliber as those found on Rodeo Drive, the atmosphere on Melrose Avenue is more laid-back and accessible to the average shopper.

Melrose’s main draw may be the shopping, but visitors also come for famous bakeries and cafes like Duff Goldman’s Charm City Cakes and the large selection of teas at Urth Caffe.
