Where to Live

You can find apartments peppered all over Westlake. Studios abound as the neighborhood continues to expand. The huge houses of the 1920's have been turned into duplexes and apartments. Efficiency may have shrunk the dwellings but it has not had a similar effect on the prices. A premium for living in the "center of everything" is quite pricey.

Where to Eat

Westlake showcases quite a few award-winning eateries, which is expected of a central L.A. neighborhood. Don't miss out on the pastrami sandwiches at a quick lunch counter deli that cater to the on-the-go lifestyle. You'll find classic American favorites as well as plenty of authentic ethnic places to choose from in the area. For the most authentic L.A. experience, don't let the taco trucks pass by when you're looking for a quick snack.

What You'll See

Expect to see people everywhere. If you want to see the eclectic diversity that the city has to offer then Westlake is the place. You can see kids playing basketball at one of the parks. With the myriad of schools in the area you can always check out a highly competitive game in season. The undeveloped parts of Westlake are sharply contrasted by attractions like the Queen Anne mansion for executive Charles C.L. Leslie on Garland Avenue.

Friday Night Fun

Westlake is a fun neighborhood. There are hotspots in the area with a never ending line up of themed events. It's like going to a new place every time. Westlake boasts the kind of nightlife that people travel to L.A. to experience. You can get free tamales at a local wine and beer bar. One advantage of having such a compact neighborhood is having a good variety of great hang out spots clustered within a couple of square miles.

The Perfect Sunday

In the hustle and bustle of Westlake there is a number of places that appeal to those who prefer taking it easy. In nearby Koreatown, the shops and markets near Vermont and 8th Street are perfect for browsing. You can also find a few eclectic book stores to peruse for a quiet afternoon. Take your new reads to MacArthur Park and enjoy the weather and open space.
