This street on the west side is a good place to find food, coffee, and art. Lots of creatives around this area and lots of services for them. Very much a central Hollywood spot.

I walked to Melrose Spa, which is at 7269 Melrose on the evening of October 2.........it was a poor choice of times to visit, but if at all possible I like to visit a bathhouse when I go to a large city.

The Spa is a sex hookup business, simply stated............gay sex. Along those lines, my expectations were low, since it was Tuesday.

Anyway, this was one of the cleanest baths I've been to. My only real annoyance was that some of the walls and rails in the maze were sticky............that's a common issue in baths. The water in the hot tub seemed well-balanced and clean. There was a slight bathtub ring, but it was minimal, and could have been caused by one bozo that didn't shower before getting in the water. The steam room was nice, with what looked like new tile. I did notice that the hot water in the showers took a long time to get there; I showered cold, which kinda ruined the mood. I didn't see any trash/ wrappers on the floor. I didn't get a room, for financial reasons, instead, I got a locker. The lockers are right up front where the desk person can keep an eye on them. Most places have lock boxes for valuables, this one didn't, but padlocks on the lockers seemed adequate.

The desk person, there was only one (it was around 9pm) was a very nice, attractive young man which made my short, uneventful stay enjoyable.

I'll go back, but probably on a Friday or Saturday night.

I have been going to Melrose Avenue to eat and shop for many, many years. Good restaurants and good food.
Last week we even saw a celebrity shopping in the same store with us. Many stores to see with unique products.
A fun place to visit.

Street crime is out of control in Los Angeles at the moment. It seems to be higher in Melrose than other areas along with homeless . i would avoid this area.

Walking day out looking for something new . Lot of goth/punk sort of shops along the very long street with some nice shops at the far end . Apart from that not much else to report . I wouldn’t say it’s a must do

Nice walk but with only few interests such as painted wall. If you really have some time to kill in L.A.

I had very high expectations and was a bit disappointed. Lots of shops but also didn’t feel very safe! Streets were dirty. Coffee place (coffee dose) we visited was super nice. Only stayed for an hour as there wasn’t much to see/do.

If you have 2 hour spare time during your LA stays, come to get the Thai tea at Alfred to boost your body and get sugar high before hitting some of the most instagrammable spots in the neighborhood. Try stroll down some of the lesser known alleys to get different angle from your friends' posts.

Fun shopping and good restaurants on the infamous melrose. It was close to our hotel so we walked and shopped and had fun with our teens. Some areas are sketchy though so watch how far down you walk.
