Silver Lake

It’s hard to find mention of this Eastside enclave without reference to its cultural cachet, and for good reason. If you’ve spent time lounging in its renowned coffee shops or haunting its cherished music venues, it’s not lost on you why locals and visitors alike gravitate to this epicentric town. But it’s more than local: Money Magazine called Silver Lake one of the best big-city neighborhoods in the entire country, and “a haven for families as well as the hipsters who first popularized it.” Get outdoors for black walnut trees, macadamias, avocados, and loquats that give way to secret stairways great for exercising or exploring. Then dance yourself clean at the Satellite or take in top-notch storytelling events at the Lyric-Hyperion Theatre & Cafe. Most homes priced $1 million.

“Central to DTLA, this artistic community is a fun, exciting place to live.”

Dining

Sawyer for soft shell crab sandwiches. Botanica for Turkish eggs. Café Stella for romantic ambiance. There’s more, but it’s worth exploring for yourself.

Shops

Silver Lake does well with its shopping. Start with Dream Collective and müsh, then make your way north to Clover and the Broome Street General Store.

Places

So much is unique to Silver Lake, it can be hard to describe — but you can start with gems like a tree full of chandeliers, or the Micheltorena Stairs.
