There's something about the vibe in this place that's great. Anytime I've gone it was buzzing - so much so that it's become a bit of a ritual. Leave enough time to have a good wander around and hit one of the swanky 'eateries'.

AChain stores in a super cute outdoor setting. The Grove and farmers market are adjacent to one another, so a great people watching spot. Must love dogs! Every single store we went into had people with their little dogs in tow, some in strollers and lots of high end bling :) Luckily I love dogs, so no big deal for... More

It's nice little island of pedestrian friendly shopping. It's nice place to grab lunch and watch LA walk by

An outdoor Mall. With a food court. Big whoop. The trolley was back n forth entertainment suited for the under 10 crowd while the rest of us elbowed our way into stores. Unless you have unlimited time in LA and have exhausted every other form of recreation, or are a mall incensed teenager, pass this by.

We stopped here because the Hop-on-hop-off bus stopped at the Farmer's Market next to it. So the Grove was more of a surprise. But a lovely one, feels more like walking through a small town. No cars allowed, many shops and smaller stands on the streets. Lovely to walk around to look or to do some shopping

I live in LA and finally visited the Grove with an out-of-town friend. It was extremely crowded, like NY during rush hour. We had to park on the roof which turned out to be the highlight of our adventure. The view of LA from the roof of the garage is breathtaking, which is why I gave the Grove 3 points.... More

The Grove is a nice mall with different kinds of shops (there is a Taschen Bookstore, a Nike store, an Abercrombie & Fitch, a cinema, a lot of restaurants). The best thing is that it's next to the original Farmer's Market where you can enjoy great food after a long day of shopping. Parking is pretty expensive (around 25$ for... More

Cool place to chill out, has all popular brand stores and a really nice Cinema. It's right next to the Farmer's Market which has many nice places to eat. I also really liked the old Tram that passed through here. If you are only in L.A. for a short time i wouldn't worry to much about visiting here but if... More

Spent about 5 hours here and it felt easy to do. A great range of shops and restaurants ad the concierge service was excellent, set up like a hotel when you arrive in the car park! The outdoor feel was great for a summers day and being adjacent to the Farmers Market added great value.
