Welcome to Echo Park
Echo Park was one of LA’s first suburbs, built when downtown was still a patchwork of dirt roads populated by horse-drawn buggies.
A protected pocket of historic Victorian-era homes serves as a testament to the neighborhood’s earliest days and its rows of restored mansions transport visitors to a bygone time.
Echo Park is one of LA’s most quickly evolving neighborhoods. Home to renowned late-night taco trucks and a growing community of young creatives, artists, and musicians, its densely populated hills are packed with duplexes, apartment buildings, and bungalows. An eclectic mix of urban grit and trendy restaurants, bars, and boutiques comprise its non-residential sections, with an influx of sports fans descending every spring for baseball season at Dodger Stadium.
What to Expect
Trendy eateries, ample nightlife, and a touch of quirk.
Echo Park’s central location and freeway access make it an ideal neighborhood for exploring Los Angeles, but why would you leave? The neighborhood is home to an enticing mix of trendy, affordable restaurants, small bustling bars, and one of the city’s best indie live music venues, The Echo and Echoplex.
Hip, creative, and ever so slightly gritty.
Whether you’re a foodie, fashionista or local band’s biggest fan, Echo Park’s shopping and nightlife scene has something to offer. Following late nights spent dancing and bar hopping, locals head to Elysian Park to relax and rejuvenate in the city’s oldest and second-largest park.
One-of-a-kind retail and dining experiences.
Most of Echo Park’s local businesses are truly unique and independently owned. Hip eateries, coffee shops, and boutiques line the neighborhood’s busiest stretch of Sunset Boulevard.
Small single-family homes, vintage apartment buildings, and duplexes.
Echo Park’s nooks and crannies are densely packed with quaint craftsman houses, mid-century apartment buildings, and new Spanish-style homes. Angelino Heights is a small sector within Echo Park that boasts historic Victorian homes for an architectural blast from the past.
