The newest and hippest boutiques, local hang-outs and cafes can be found stretching along Melrose from Doheny Drive East through West Hollywood. Once you make it through the city, the street gets a bit more rough and edgy with local shops, some smaller restaurants, pizzerias and second hand clothing stores. The better shopping seems to be West of Crescent Heights.... More

Melrose is a wonderful street, so many indie stores to visit with many inspiring products. I feel as though I could have spent a vast amount of money here as there are very unique items that I feel would be difficult to find elsewhere. I really hope that the bigger chains don't start moving in as Melrose offers a refreshing... More

We always take plenty of quarters for the parking meters and simply park..walk along one side, cross over walk back and then move the car up the road, best way to see all Melrose has to offer...loads of shops and places to eat, but as it runs for quite a length we've found this is the best way with limited...

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.
