This is the street when you can always find celebrities and papparazzi. It is funny. You can also have a good coffe @ Alfred. Don't miss the street market on sundays.

We go to Melrose Place ( Not Melrose Ave, ) because it's tiny ( only a few blocks ) and has top name shops and boutiques. The walking is delightful with many trees and greenery plus wonderful architectural details to buildings - like a mini-slice of Europe. Prices are haute, but no more so than on Rodeo. Window shopping &... More

Someone says it is much trendier to go shopping here than in the more glitzy Rodeo Drive. Some of the Shops are truly beautiful with a stunning architecture; some are disguised by big trees or hedges in front of them... Perhaps great for celebs who like their privacy while shopping. Worth a look if you are around!

Not to be confused with Melrose Avenue (nearby), this is a relatively short street to the north of Melrose Avenue. However, it has much less traffic (largely because it does not really "go" anywhere and is therefore much more suitable to walking. It has substantially more landscaping, many small boutiques and some restaurants, and overall, a relaxing ambiance (as opposed... More

Yeah. About this. It's not where you think it is. The entrance only isn't anywhere near west hollywood. It's actually 4616 Greenwood Place, Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. But people actually live there, so it's a gated community. But for a show that lasted 7 years, it's kinda cool to see (92-99).

As I read the other reviews I note that they are lumping Melrose Place into Melrose Avenue. They are of course adjacent to one another, but are different. Melrose Place is a short street off of Melrose Avenue and has shops such as Isabel Marant, Equipment, a wonderful shop from Italy called Santa Maria Novella with amazing beauty products, another...

I was doing consulting work for eight months on Wilshire Blvd and lived a block from Melrose Place. I could not wait for the farmes market each weekend. I have never experienced anything like it. California is blessed with two growing seasons and this farmers market captures the best from the surrounding farms. It is very small by comparison to... More

We were told that walking melrose ave we would see shop after shop, all different. But the shops were far apart so it was a very long walk. And many of the shops were closed due to failure in economy.There are many better shopping areas in LA. If you have only a few days to shop do not waste your... More
