Depending on how you feel about hipster trends and gentrified hoods, you’ll either love or hate one of the best neighborhoods in L.A. known as, Silver Lake. The partially residential, partially commercial neighborhood, located in the central region of Los Angeles County, was originally named, Ivanhoe, in the 1900’s by one of the area’s first residents, who hailed from Scotland. Since its establishment, the community was built up around a local reservoir. The “Silver” in Silver Lake comes from the surname of one of the local politicians who helped to create the reservoir. Present day Silver Lake has been voted one of the best neighborhoods in Los Angeles, many more times over than can be counted, and the community is home to some of the most popular hipster hangouts in L.A too.
Boasting all the modern day amenities you could ask for in just 2.75 charmingly vibrant square miles, it’s no surprise that many noteworthy names have chosen to hang their hat in Silver Lake. While the list is lengthy, some of the most well-known Silver Lake residents include Fred Armisen, James Franco, Judy Garland, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rachel McAdams, Christina Ricci, and Pauly Shore. With the most popular restaurants, bars, and coffee shops popping up on every corner of the community, you can bet that Silver Lake is loaded with some of the best things to do in Los Angeles. For a day of fun in the SoCal sun, hit up local Silver Lake hotspots like The Silver Lake Reservoir and Meadow. Or, catch a Concert at the Satellite or Silver Lake Lounge, enjoy a Thai massage at The Raven Spa, get your cardio in at the infamous “Secret Stairs”, or join a game of pick-up basketball at Bellevue Park. Silver Lake is also the location of the Silver Lake Conservatory of Music, Broome Street General Store, Sunset Junction, Chandelier Tree, Silver Lake Wine, Crossroads Trading Company, and the Silver Lake Dog Park.
