About Mid-City

Like the name implies, Mid-City is in the middle of everything. With a short drive to Hollywood, downtown, or the beach, there is hardly a bad commute from Mid-City. This neighborhood features quiet, palm-lined streets with a mix of single-family homes and duplex, triplex, and multi-family buildings. Expect a family-friendly atmosphere within the neighborhood, but a healthy dose of commotion on the main streets. Restaurants line the length of Pico Boulevard while La Cienega and La Brea have shopping and quick access to the 10.

Getting Around Mid-City

Around Mid-City

For upscale homes in Mid-City, look between Washington and Venice Boulevard to the east of La Brea. For more of a throwback Los Angeles lifestyle, you can find ample-sized apartments near Pico and enjoy all the mom-and-pop stores with vintage neon signage. Commuting elsewhere? Enjoy the numerous housing options near La Cienega and the Santa Monica Freeway.

Highlights include Roscoe's House of Chicken 'n Waffles and the 24-hour dive Lucy's. There's no shortage of great finds here, from classic pastrami delis to the numerous taquerias. The great thing about Mid-City is its central location, so enjoy the quick jaunts to Koreatown and West Hollywood for even more food options. But you don't have to leave the neighborhood -- there's every fast food option in the world here, plus more than enough family and upscale restaurants.

Family barbecues on the weekends and soccer tournaments at local rec centers are definitely part of the landscape here. But Mid-City defies stereotypes, thanks to the diverse mix of housing types that can be found even within a single block. The neighborhood mostly looks like quaint suburban living at first glance, but there is a rich history and community vibe shared by filmmakers, young professional transplants, and longtime residents alike.

Check out a show at The Comedy Union or The Mint for world-class entertainment, or catch a movie without fighting the crowds in Hollywood. You can't go wrong with Mexican in Mid-City, so hit up Sky's Gourmet Tacos or whichever shop you walk by first. Take home dessert or a six-pack of craft beer from the grocery store and enjoy a nightcap with neighbors around the shared fire pit space.

Enjoy some breakfast pastries and stock up on local, organic produce at the Wellington Square Farmers Market on Washington Boulevard. Then kill a few hours at the Adams Gateway, a shopping center made out of shipping containers where you can find a florist, a record shop, vintage clothing, and artsy home goods. Enjoy a home-cooked dinner on a restaurant patio and a cocktail at the uber-chill Mandrake Bar to close out the weekend.
