Area Overview

Nestled between West Hollywood and La Brea, Fairfax is best known for the renowned Farmer’s Market, its major shopping destination (The Grove), and the iconic CBS Television City broadcasting center. To walk along the famous Melrose Avenue is to fully embrace the Los Angeles culture filled with eclectic eateries, upscale boutiques, and chic hotels.
