It is located between Hollywood and Beverly Hills. - This dining and shopping ara is most famous for Melrose District, with its alternative clothing shops looking a bit like a flee market. It looks different from the polish shopping streets often found in Beverly Hills. - Melrose Heights, between La Cienega and Fairfax, has more upscales restaurants and shops.

Eclectic shopping from A to Z. All sorts of clothing from chic to cheap. All sorts of eateries from basic budget, Johnny Rockets, Antonio's Restaurant for margaritas and Mexican food. Fun "people watching". Jess Kalinowsky Bon Vivant!

If you're in the area you can stop by and go window shopping or find some good eats, but don't go out of your way to come here.

So sad to see what has become of Melrose..between Fairfax and La Brea. What used to be the cutting edge hippest designer shops has become so sleazy now. I used to compare it to Kings Road in the swinging 60's in London....as our own version of that. No more. Tacky tacky tacky...with a few cool places thrown into the mix,... More

This is the destination for all your home decor, dining and entertainment needs. The newly opened Restoration Hardware mansion is worth the trip alone. Not to be missed is Table Art at 8024 Melrose Avenue, ask for Walter.

We had breakfast at a very popular restaurant there on a Sunday morning. The line formed outside the venue. I think it was the called the Blue -----? Afterwards we walked down the street viewing very different types of shops that catered to the young, tatooed crowd that lived in the neighborhood.
