About Century City

Century City is located on the west side of Los Angeles, sandwiched between Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Cheviot Hills. It's known for having distinct skyscrapers and civic buildings, which form a trademark skyline that is visible from several canyons throughout Los Angeles. Century City is also home to several businesses, talent agencies, emergency centers, and entertainment studios. This beautiful and clean neighborhood is more metropolitan than other neighborhoods in Los Angeles but is still best navigated by car, as it's surrounded by main streets that are both long and wide, making it laborious to travel by foot. A central part of Century City is the ever popular Westfield Century City Mall, which is beloved by locals and tourists because of its specialty boutique shops, large movie theater, and well-known department stores.

Around Century City

Although there are some low-key and affluent residences available in Century City, the majority of the area is primarily a business district. However, towards the east side of Century City on Century Park Lane are homes ranging from luxurious duplexes to high-rise condominiums. The opposite end of town along Beverly Glen Boulevard consists of mostly single-family townhouses, low-rise condominiums, and large mansions for those who can afford to spend a little bit more.

Olympic Boulevard hosts the neighborhood's culinary options, which include American-style cafes, grocery stores, and restaurants. You can find a variety of ethnic cuisines available including Japanese, Middle Eastern, Korean, and several fusion options. The Westfield Century City Mall's famous food court also satisfies any craving. This is not your typical food court that offers only fast food from well-known chains. Instead, they partner up with a number of quality restaurants, providing plenty of healthy and filling options. There are also numerous specialty chocolate and dessert shops within the mall for those who want to satisfy their sweet tooth.

Beautiful and towering corporate buildings with glittering lights are what differentiate this neighborhood from the rest of Los Angeles. You'll typically see sharply dressed entertainment industry professionals, UCLA students, service workers, or City of Los Angeles employees who are out for lunch or heading to work. During business hours, streets will be cluttered due to heavy traffic throughout the neighborhood.

Although Century City's nightlife is not as active when compared to other parts of town, there are American-fusion restaurants for fine dining and several bars with a large beer selection for those who want to catch a game. However, the place to be is definitely the Westfield Century City Mall's movie theater, which is always crowded on a Friday night.

Grab something delicious at one of the many restaurants along Santa Monica Boulevard. Out-of-town visitors will love exploring the famous television and movie sets in 20th Century Fox Studios. You can also check out the The Annenberg Space for Photography. If all else fails, take a walk through Avenue of the Stars and have a picnic on the open grass areas by Santa Monica Boulevard.
