Los Feliz wasn’t actually named for its happy residents but, honestly, it as well have been. Sometimes called the Beverly Hills of the East Side, the Los Feliz neighborhood combines the luxurious architecture and hillside views of LA’s most affluent neighborhoods with the East Side’s artistic edge d liberal sensibility. Given that, it’s easy to understand why the Hills of Los Feliz boast the highest concentration of movie stars and celebrity residents of any area of LA real estate (Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Madonna, Gwen Stefani, and Goldie Hahn are just a few of the notable names that occupy the 90027).
It’s hard to be down when you’re in walking distance of coffee shops, theaters, boutiques, and sidewalk cafes on Vermont Avenue, between Franklin and Hollywood, or the Hillhurst corridor between Los Feliz Boulevard and Prospect Avenue.
In a city where people feel like they spend more time in their cars then out, this neighborhood-feel is a welcome relief. Aside from the plethora of entertainment options, Los Feliz is also home to some of Los Angeles, CA’s most tranquil neighborhoods and standout architecture.
Los Feliz lies north of East Hollywood and just south of the Santa Monica Mountains, adjacent to the neighborhoods of Hollywood and Silver Lake. Home to the southern face of Griffith Park, the district includes the Griffith Observatory and the Greek Theatre.
