Around Fairfax

The Fairfax district is a combination of single-family homes, townhouses, and mid-size condominium complexes. The closer you are to La Brea Avenue, the more condominium complexes you'll see. Many of these are under ten units and, if you desire to live in a more modern high-rise, nearby 3rd street's Park La Brea is home to large, open floor plans and many modern amenities.

Los Angeles is known for having a diverse array of cultures and culinary offerings, and Fairfax is no different. Travel west on Fairfax Avenue towards Interstate 10 and you'll encounter a city block known as "Little Ethiopa." This quarter-mile stretch of road is home to some of the best Ethiopian restaurants in the city and is a must for anyone looking to escape the more common fare found throughout L.A. La Brea is also home to the hottest dinner and brunch spots east of Venice, with Republique known as both an ideal date spot and for a quick brunch the next day.

Due to it being a largely residential neighborhood, Fairfax is relatively quiet when compared to neighboring Hollywood. However, for those looking for an extensive night out, Wilshire Boulevard is full of great places to grab a bite to eat and dance the night away. If live music is your passion, the nearby El Rey is a Los Angeles staple that hosts some of the biggest names in music.

Sushi is a popular dish with the locals of Fairfax and it's not unusual to see one of the many sushi bars on Wilshire packed on most Friday nights. Only a short walk away, 3rd street is home to many casual bars with great drink specials and appetizers. If staying out until the sun comes up sounds like an ideal Friday night, the short drive up La Brea will take you to the hottest clubs Hollywood has to offer.

A trip to the historic La Brea Tar Pits is a great family-friendly way to spend a Sunday, as is the nearby Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Filled with exhibits from all over the world, you could spend several weekends visiting LACMA and never see the same exhibit twice. They even serve cocktails and fine wine. For all your shopping needs, The Grove is home to high-end department stores and plenty of celebrities soaking up the sun and the sales.
