Choosing a new neighborhood in Los Angeles isn’t an easy task. It’s a massive city, with a lot of wonderful areas – some of them more well known than others. This week, we’re highlighting one of our favorite neighborhoods in the city. Welcome to Atwater Village: a residential-friendly, vibrant locale in the northeast of Los Angeles, bordered by Los Feliz and Silver Lake. Here are just a few of our favorite neighborhood highlights:
A Highly Walkable Area with a Vibrant Nightlife
With how bad traffic can be in Los Angeles, the thought of driving home after a night out on the town can often be a grueling proposition. Luckily, in Atwater Village, you don’t have to go far to grab a drink and some great food. Glendale Boulevard and Los Feliz Boulevard are both home to some of the city’s most popular bars and restaurants. Try The Morrison if you’re looking for a sports bar with great reviews and even better food and drinks. New Girl fan? You’ll definitely want to hang out at The Griffin, which appears on the show regularly. There’s also the new wine bar Good Measure started by Matthew Kaner, the wine director known for Bar Covell. And that’s only the tip of the social iceberg – you’ll quickly find that there’s always something to do here.
Fantastic Shopping Options
If you have yet to experience the joy that is Costco, that will change once you live in Atwater Village. With only a few locations spread throughout LA, Costco isn’t always easy to get to, but when it is, you’ll never want for groceries and great deals again. Looking for something a bit more organic? There’s a wonderful local farmer’s market every Sunday, and wine connoisseurs will want to visit Oeno Vino, a popular wine shop and bar with a handpicked selection of top notch bottles.
Outdoor Activities Galore
Located right next to the expansive and famous Griffith Park (perhaps best known for its observatory), this is the perfect location for anyone who wants to spend some time in LA’s great outdoors. Families will also find a train museum and the LA Zoo, which is bound to be popular with kids. If you’re after a great place to play a game of golf, look no farther than the Los Feliz Golf Course. From bike paths along the LA river, to an active local running and fitness community, outdoors enthusiasts will quickly find that Atwater Village offers a wealth of opportunities to enjoy nature.
A Fantastic, Affordable Place to Live
