Things to Do in Silver Lake

View Map

One of LA’s hippest neighborhoods, Silver Lake and its Sunset Junction are a plethora of small indie boutiques, including the Spice Station, the Cafecito Organico coffee roaster and Mohawk General Store.

Some of the best restaurants in LA can also be found in Silver Lake, from Cliff’s Edge and Sqirl for brunch to L & E Oyster Bar for dinner. During the day, the weekend farmer’s market is abuzz with live music and local artisans while the path around Silver Lake Reservoir is brimming with runners, walkers and parents with strollers.

With its numerous bars and music venues like the Thirsty Cow, Silverlake Lounge, El Cid and Red Lion Tavern, many within walking distance, the outdoor action doesn’t stop when the sun sets.
