Mid-City

Welcome to Mid City

Dynamic urban hospitality.
 
Yes, you are in the city, but you are in a neighborhood with roots and traditions. This diverse area has many smaller enclaves within it, each unique in style and culture—and that makes this neighborhood special. The architecture includes grand styles from the late 1800s to modern and swanky new designs. Perhaps the best part of Mid City and the least mentioned is that it’s just plain romantic. You’ll find little bodegas tucked into corners of buildings as well as quirky shops and boutiques patched at ground level into structures, with living spaces stacked above them. It simply has an old-world feel to it.
 
Old world or not, though, the modern and progressive world is moving full steam ahead in Mid City. Residents are blessed with many museums, art galleries, live music venues, and of course, La Brea Tar Pits. From the unique Urban Light sculpture (a must-see for photo ops and contemplation) to outdoor jazz concerts in the summer to awesome shopping destinations, Mid City truly has something for everyone. The housing includes old Victorians remodeled, luxury estates and bungalows, ultra-modern new homes, posh townhouses, and high-end condominiums.

Local Lifestyle 

Mid City has the kind of atmosphere where every night is date night. Fine-dining restaurants, intimate little nooks, and outdoor dancing to summer concerts on a warm night just invite fun and memories made for life. During the daytime, you can hang out at The Grove for movies, live music, puppet shows, and excellent shopping. Residents also love to schmooze and catch up on the latest gossip at The Original Farmers Market for the freshest produce, artisan bread, specialty coffees, jams and honey, arts and crafts, and live music.
 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

For traditional Jamaican food with herbs and spices you just can’t get anywhere else, you’ll love Natraliart Jamaican Restaurant. You can’t beat Stevie’s Creole Café for authentic dishes and the best seafood gumbo outside of New Orleans. You might adore the American food cooked to perfection, but you’ll also fall in love with the live jazz performances, outdoor dining experience, and fully stocked bar at PIPS on La Brea. This is definitely date night done right. If you’re fortunate enough to get a seat at La Flor de Yucatán, you’ll get the best Mayan Food and baked goods in L.A., all done by one family with talent.
 
Shop until your heart’s content at The Grove, where you’ll find designer clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories, jewelry, fragrances, and so much more. You can make the trip over to Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive, the famous two-mile-long shopping district where the streets are lined with the epitome of upscale fashion, luxury, culture, arts, and entertainment spots.
 

Things to Do 

La Brea Tar Pits & Museum is more than just a museum. Paleontologists are still digging up ice age artifacts there, and you can watch them live at work. Check out the fantastic exhibits at the Petersen Automotive Museum. You have never seen such a unique collection of vehicles in your life: Andy Warhol car art, official James Bond vehicles, famous cars from TV and movie scenes, extreme high-performance luxury cars, classic 1930s Ford vehicles, and to-die-for swanky hotrods.
