Had been years since I was here and stayed out of curiosity. Described as "hipster" but in reality, just another strip. A few good bars and cafes, but again, no better or worse than any major city in the world.

Was told to check this place out for shopping. Maybe just us but the shops were over priced, the streetscape was run down and we had a much better time deciding half way through to go to Venice Beach instead

Melrose is great for shopping, dining, celebrity sightings and people watching. We always park on a side street and walk to the main shopping area. If you're lucky you can catch a celebrity or watch a commercial being filmed, or a photography shot. There are many unique shops. Each with their own take on fashion. There are also consignment shops... More

I live a few blocks north of Melrose and always enjoy walking on Melrose on my way to go somewhere. They say, "Nobody walks in LA"? This is one of the fun streets to walk on. Endless shops and a number of restaurants with outdoor seatings, great for people-watching. I don't shop there, but have a few places I go... More

The Melrose avenue is really nice in the afternoon. As most shops open late. It's also very interesting for people watching. There are also some nice restaurants. So you can plan easly a whole afternoon for this area.

Lots of great boutiques and restaurants and coffee bars and time tested walking street. This street has always been a fun place to visit and see something unusual and trendy at the same time The snakepit ale house is a cool dive bar but good drink menu and some food. Nice open windows and nice during the day

If you are in the LA area, I recommend you parking your car and walking up and down Melrose for the experience. Lots of great art work, great stores and very chic.
