Echo Park

About Echo Park

Echo Park is practically synonymous with Los Angeles hipsters, with no shortage of artsy cafés and stores lining its stretch of Sunset Boulevard. The neighborhood has something for everyone, however, thanks to its unique location and views. Echo Park puts you right between Dodger Stadium and Elysian Park to the east and even more hipster Silver Lake to the west. Downtown is just minutes away, even with traffic. Locals flock to Echo Park for everything from farm-to-table dining or a weekend picnic by Echo Park Lake, and it's one neighborhood virtually every Angeleno would live in if given the chance.

Around Echo Park

Closer to Sunset you'll find smaller apartments and enjoy easier walkability to the coolest shops and restaurants. But there's a ton of great houses with scenic vistas farther up the hill to the north, often with better affordability farther from Sunset. For quiet seclusion, take the time to wander the mountaintop cul-de-sacs. Also, don't miss the sliver of Echo Park that lies south of the 101; it's quiet, has great coffee shops, and fast access to any freeway commute.

Echo Park has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to artisan food and beer. From all-vegan gourmet restaurants to trendy gastropubs where the fries are made with duck fat, it's a foodie mecca here. But residents will be quick to tout the simple pleasures of all the great taquerias and pizza parlors throughout the area.

Foot traffic on the streets, freelancers working in coffee shops, and lots of young couples with strollers and dogs. Echo Park is not the busiest neighborhood in Los Angeles by any means, but it draws in enough traffic that it feels as energetic on a weekday morning as it does on weekends.

You can enjoy a picnic at Echo Park Lake for a music festival or a stroll down Sunset for craft cocktails. Backyard barbecues with friends are also part of the norm. Just about any Friday night is likely to end with a late-night taco truck visit.

Enjoy brunch on a café patio, scour the shops for vintage clothing or vinyl records, and spend a few hours around the lake people-watching or playing catch. Then head to an organic grocery to grab a few things for dinner at home, or head back out for another round of drinks at Mohawk Bend or Bar Bandini.
