Pictures of the Grove

The Grove is an outdoor shopping mall located next to the Farmers Market in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles just south of CBS Television Studios. It is relatively small as LA shopping malls go, with about 45 businesses, which makes it easier to navigate, and it makes up in ambiance whatever it may lack in size.

The Grove includes a combination of designer fashions and mid-range retail, and a movie theater in a crisscross of pedestrian boulevards lined with facades inspired by art deco and old Europe. Patio and balcony dining overlook the Dancing Fountain in the courtyard.

Some highlights of The Grove include the only west coast American Girl Place, an Apple Store and the Barnes and Noble with the most celebrity book signings in town. An outdoor stage hosts everything from concerts and movies to Cirque du Soleil previews. The anchor department store is a Nordtroms with Jimmy Choo and Stella McCartney boutiques.

Trolley Rides

A green double-decker Trolley built on the undercarriage of a 1950s Boston street car can give you a free lift along the 1/4 mile stretch from the middle of the Los Angeles Farmers Market to the middle of the Grove.

Concierge Services

If your hotel doesn't offer concierge services, the Grove's concierge can help you out with dinner reservations, personal shopping, tourist information and even check your packages so you don't have to carry them around with you.
