Los Feliz

About Los Feliz

At the foot of the Hollywood Hills lies Los Feliz, a tight-knit residential community that changes slowly over time as artists and entertainers move in and out. More affordable than many other neighborhoods around the hills, Los Feliz has its share of fancy digs. Whether you want a palatial home with a priceless view or a modest mission-style home right next to some of the best shopping and dining in town, Los Feliz has it all. Before heading in, just know that the name is pronounced "FEE-liss" by most locals, although a traditional Spanish pronunciation is also acceptable.

Around Los Feliz

The lively center of the neighborhood, Los Feliz Village, has the most affordable houses. That's because the rest of Los Feliz is dotted with hills that create marvelous vistas of the mountains and beyond, with grand architecture and price tags to match. Likewise, the dynamic and youthful artist culture of Los Feliz centers around the village while families and celebrity types find estates in the hills. There's no wrong way to live in Los Feliz, it's just a matter of applying your budget toward your preferred balance of size, location, and views.

Los Feliz has grown-up tastes compared to many of the other trendy neighborhoods in Los Angeles. In addition to the addictive taco shops and retro diners that are found throughout the city, Los Feliz offers an upper echelon of fine dining that would impress even a New York or Paris native. Expect fine wine lists and award-winning chefs aplenty. Of course, there is no shortage of low-key organic cafes and hole-in-the-wall pizza shops, either.

Los Feliz has moved well beyond the old starving artist mystique and into an atmosphere of successful, professional creatives. While the brunch and bar scene will often resemble a typical hipster environment, the trendiest stuff takes place in Silver Lake to the east. In Los Feliz, expect to see couples on fancy dates and East Coast transplants looking for refined culture at the theaters and restaurants in the area.

Savor a slow, multi-course dinner at a fine French bistro with a nice bottle of wine. When the waiter finally brings the check, stroll over to the movie theater to see the latest indie flick that's been gaining buzz at film festivals. If you're feeling energetic, walk a bit up Griffith Park for a cinematic sunset and breathtaking views. Otherwise, relax with a scoop of gourmet ice cream from the local corner shop before walking or biking home.

Los Feliz is famous for farm-to-table brunch spots with top-shelf bloody mary drinks, which means you are encouraged to make reservations to avoid the crowds. As an alternative, you might just enjoy some artisan donuts and freshly brewed coffee to go with your jaunt around the vintage shops or boutique stores in the neighborhood. Grab dinner ingredients and local produce from the farmers market and settle in for a quiet dinner on your balcony or patio. If you have kids, take them to the local park for some fresh air and space to play around.

The best of LA!

Samantha R
Los Feliz might very well be my favorite spot on all of Los Angeles. There's plenty to do all the time, between unique food spots and cool boutiques to the great bars. One of the best parts of this neighborhood is that unlike most of LA, Los Feliz is very walkable.
