Melrose Avenue is a hodgepodge of all that encompasses L.A. This diverse district manages to be eccentric and mainstream, affordable and upscale, and grungy and glamorous all at once. The one constant about this vibrant, lively block is that its shopping, dining, and people-watching are second to none.
A major thoroughfare, Melrose Avenue spans from Santa Monica Boulevard – on the cusp between Beverly Hills and West Hollywood-all the way to Lucille Avenue in Silver Lake. However, its most well-known section runs from Highland to Fairfax Avenue. West of Fairfax, the street transforms from funky to fancy. The eastern end of Melrose Avenue became a go-to destination in the ’80s for its grunge culture. It has continued its reign of all things vintage and alternative since then, although today is also lined with several mass-market stores. Heading west of Fairfax, Melrose Avenue assumes a far more upscale feel.
