Los Angeles Shopping/Shopping Mall information that is useful for both new and current residents of Los Angeles area.


Rodeo Drive/The Golden Triangle
Santa Monica Boulevard to the north, Wilshire Boulevard to the south and Canon Drive to the east, Los Angeles CA
The Golden Triangle carries more wealth and fine stores than most small countries. Rodeo Drive is the center of all the shopping action. Featured in "Pretty Woman" as the street of choice the protagonist played by Julia Roberts choses to shop. Sporting shops like Tiiffany's, Cartier, Chanel, Bally, Gucci and other well-heeled notables, Rodeo Drive is also the street that few people who don't spend their life in front of the camera can afford. On nearby Wilshire Blvd. there is Niketown, Barneys, and, yes, the "Winona" Saks Fifth Avenue. Throughout the Triangle, you will see a curious collection of nouveau riche types sauntering about that will make you feel like you're watching an episode of "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous: The Reality Show."
Robertson Blvd
Between Beverly Blvd. and Third St., Los Angeles CA
Featuring the exclusivity of Beverly Hills and Melrose’s swanky cool, this small stretch is where Hollywood hipsters with real big money shop. There are Curve's modern edgy outfits, high-end Maxfield's discount outlet, Maxfield Blue, an Industry MAC store, and a shimmering Georgio Armani Home store. Slip on some Hogan shoes, or grab a gift at Kitson's, which has items for any age range. This is also the place to spot celebrities, usually noshing at the Ivy, one of the best restaurants in the city.
Melrose Avenue
Between San Vicente and La Brea Ave., Los Angeles CA
The stretch of Melrose between Fairfax and La Brea avenues has defined hip shopping in Los Angeles since the early 80’s. The storefronts serve as works of pop art, and the dozen blocks are packed with hipsters looking to get ahold the latest attire. Red Balls, Slow, and Von Dutch for great clothing offer great clothing. You can find second hand items at Aardvark's and Wasteland. On the west side of Fairfax Avenue, Melrose has emerged as a high-end paradise. Rounding out the shopping locale is everything from lingerie at Agent Provocateur to great home accessories at designer Jonathan Adler's store. A definitive shopping experience.
Beverly Blvd
Between Martel Ave. and La Brea Ave., Los Angeles CA
A quieter, more sophisticated cousin to its neighbor Melrose, this calm street features an eccentric array of stores. There is Beige, one of the best boutiques in the city, the men's store K. Bond, and Naked, which features exclusive selections from European designers. The latter is like the boulevard on which it sits: cool and laidback, and there is no pressure to buy. Erewhon is an upscale health food store whose deli has great food served by extremely rude food jockeys. That's what happens when you're a frustrated actor. And from the "Only in L.A." file, at Fifi and Romeo you can buy matching sweaters for you and your dog.
Third Street
Between La Cienega Blvd. and La Brea Ave., Los Angeles CA
A great walk and a great shop. Fantastic antique stores, wonderful boutiques such as Aero & Co and Polka Dots & Moonbeams, and specialty stores such as Zipper's modern home accessories and unique gifts litter the curb. While there you can grab a healthy bite at Real Food Daily, some diner fare at the tiny Who's on Third, or some succulent tapas at the Spanish eatery Cava. Down east of the street is the new upscale restaurant A.O.C., owned by the chefs behind the acclaimed Lucques and Border Grill.
Montana Avenue
Around 15th St., Los Angeles CA
Cafes and quiet boutiques provide a backdrop, as the upscale clientele lazily stroll down the street. A real treat in this street's string of stores is Pearl, owned by Jennifer Nicholson. Check out her own cool line of clothes as well as accessories from the hottest new designers.
La Brea
Between Wilshire Blvd. and Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles CA
This boulevard is seen by most as a major north-south tributary and by others as an east-west dividing line between the west side of L.A. and the rest of the city. So it is easy to overlook the many fine establishments. However, you may want to get a closer inspection and uncover that rare piece of hardware for your house (Liz's hardware), find a great skirt or jeans at L.A.'s best vintage store (Jet Rag), or match some simply great duds (American Rag), you can find it here.
Downtown/Santee Alley
Downtown between Santee and Maple Sts and Olympic Blvd. and 12th St., Los Angeles CA
Called a bargain hunters paradise, Santee Alley features clothing at really low prices as well as knockoffs of designer gear. A great time to go is the first Friday of every month, when the California Mart has sample sales. Of course the bargains don’t just stop at clothing. You can find everything from reams of fabric to children’s toys.
Sunset Plaza
Sunset Blvd. at Sunset Plaza D., Los Angeles CA
Sunset Blvd is dotted with outdoor cafes and boutiques. Here, coffee shops act as clubs. Pick up some coffe and get picked up yourseld. Many of the top boutiques, such as Madison and Anna Sui, can be found here, as well as new kids on the block, like O, which features Ann Cherico's stunning accessories. Just grab the seat at one of the many European cafes of the Chinese fast food Chin Chin and let your eyes focus on all the beautiful people.
