Welcome to Los Feliz
Both affluent and down-to-earth
Los Feliz is a trendy, stylish, historic community nestled beside the natural beauty of Griffith Park, one of the largest public parks in the United States. Because of this, there is no shortage of outdoor activities to explore. It also hosts the Greek Theater and the Griffith Observatory.
Los Feliz is colorful and eclectic, with a medley of local shops, restaurants, cafés, and bars. It has a charming, walkable downtown full of hidden treasures.
Los Feliz is also home to two Frank Lloyd Wright houses, and many locations have been used in film and television. It has a wide variety of home types, including low and mid-rise apartment buildings, duplexes, bungalows, and single-family homes, both big and small.
Much of the original 1920s architecture still remains, and common styles are Spanish Colonial, Tudor Revival, and mid-century.

Hip, trendy, active, and diverse
Due to the variety of Los Feliz’s home types, ranging from apartments to more luxurious homes, there is a lot of diversity in the area that adds to its vibrance. Los Feliz has a thriving restaurant scene, and its walkable district on Vermont Ave. — called Los Feliz Village — is home to dozens of locally-owned shops. Overall, Los Feliz is charming but not sleepy; it offers a close-knit community with hip appeal.
Home to Charlie Chaplin and Walt Disney
Like much of Los Angeles, Los Feliz was developed in the 1920’s. It was once a favored destination for movie production and the home of several film studios in the era of Silent Film. Charlie Chaplin himself once called Los Feliz home — as did Walt Disney, who converted the garage of his Los Feliz home into a makeshift studio. While the studios in Los Feliz have long since moved, this neighborhood was influential in building the entertainment industry as we know it.
