3 Los Angeles Neighborhoods Worth Exploring


We all know Hollywood, Santa Monica and Downtown LA, but there are so many areas in Los Angeles worth exploring, and you probably haven’t heard of half of them unless you live there. Even then, the city is so vast, you could probably dine somewhere new every day for years and still not traverse the whole City of Angels.

Below are three parts of town we think deserve a shout out either for their walkability, diversity, food and beverage options or all of the above. Next time you head west, make sure you take a day—or at least a few hours—to tour these neighborhoods. They’ll 100 percent win you over.


In LA’s San Fernando Valley, there’s a place called Encino. You may have never heard of it or if you have, there’s a chance you know it as the land of the strip mall. There’s actually quite a bit you can do here, though. From escape rooms and the Getty Center to Lake Balboa and even a Japanese Garden, there are many things to do that are family-friendly and chock-full of local culture.

There is also a little hidden gem here called Scratch Bar & Kitchen, which really makes Encino special and worth visiting. Located on the second story of an unassuming shopping center, Scratch boasts a 20+ course tasting menu with wine pairings and possibly the coolest and most down to earth chefs, bartenders and kitchen staff in all of LA.

Dinner starts at the bar and then moves to either bar seating or tables overlooking an open kitchen. It’s truly an experience worth writing home about and one you’ll want to experience again and again.

Little Dom’s and Figaro Bistro are cult favorites, while All Time and Atrium bring something new and beautiful (not to mention delicious) to the table. While All Time’s menu is handwritten daily, this homey spot has the most carefully curated and locally-sourced dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Because it changes so often, All Time will list its menu on Instagram so head there to read everything in mouthwatering detail. If it’s a beautiful dinner or weekend brunch you’re looking for, the hidden-ish Atrium will hit the spot. With high ceilings and a hip-hop playlist, what’s not to like here? You must try the grilled cauliflower shawarma and the octopus al pastor tostada. Both will leave you wanting more.
