“terrible - don't go”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I've heard, "cute boutiques and funky shops." 1st of all, nothing opens till the afternoon. 2nd, the shops are more like tattoo parlors and "intimacy boutiques." My 15 yr old was mortified. And it's very dirty. East of Orlando has about 2 blocks of very upscale shops. Dash is there and the main reason my daugther wanted to go. But everything is SO expensive. She couldn't get anything (she could afford the pencil).

“Great, trendy shopping street”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

You must shop this street if you come to LA - the independent boutiques are fun and intriguing even if you arrive from another large city !

“Boutique Shopping At Its Best”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

I found that most of the merchants I visited delivered personal service and were welcoming, which is always nice. Perhaps they knew that I had money to spend? I would hope that they would treat those browsing the same way, but in this area one never knows. Street parking is an issue. There is a paid parking lot nearby.

“A Great Walk”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We recently wandered down Melrose from around Sweetzer (where our hotel was located) to LaBrea. It was a beautiful day and the window shopping and people watching was excellent. We watched the shops go from posh, to trash, to hip. The people (even the other tourists) ran the gamut of the same! It was an enjoyable way to spend a spring/summer afternoon and don't forget to stop in to the Village Idiot for a snack and a pint to refresh yourself!

“Great people watching”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

If your like $100 used levi jeans this is the spot. It's great to wander the shops. Good Johnny Rockets right on the sidewalk with tons of outdoor eating. Still the hip area of LA.
