A guide for the trendiest places to shop and eat on (the East Side of) Melrose Avenue.
Flirt is the definition of a feminine and fun shop! With its pink walls, Brandy Melville tanks, and images of Aubrey Hepburn, this boutique is for any girl who loves to bat those lashes.
Although a bit pricey, Wasteland is the official stomping ground for vintage pieces – for both men and women. Old clothes that others think were a waste frequently turn into that one rare piece another shopper had been searching for.
If you’re looking for a very specific type of vintage clothing – particularly if you’re looking for wardrobe from a certain era say, for a movie shoot – than this is the store for you. When it comes to Slow Clothing, as they say, one man’s trash is often another man’s treasure.
This store, whose name means “hand-printed,” in Japanese, is incredibly unique. Selling everything from art and photography books, to t-shirts with Shepard Fairey prints, and even to hats, jeans, and candles, this is a shop you want to check out for Suru – er, for sure.
Blu Jam Cafe’s Blueberry Pancakes taste like Mom’s homemade pancakes: fluffy, fresh, and refreshing. I definitely recommend this jamming brunch spot – and promise you won’t feel blue after!
I bet this spot gets its name due to the response patrons get when asking if there are happy hour prices. That being said, this dimly lit, trendy environment is definitely a spot on Melrose to check out; especially if you like cheeseburgers!
If you’re considering getting tatted or pierced, I highly recommend this shop on Melrose. Freak Chic is one of the cleanest piercing shops I’ve seen, with high quality rings and a very knowledgeable staff; think more Chic and less Freak.
Do you frequently drop, lose, or accidentally step on your sunglasses? If you’re at all like me, than Homeros is the place for you! This little shop on Melrose has the widest (and cheapest!) range of sunglasses, for all of your clumsy needs!
