Best Shopping: With over 100 top shops including Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent and Salvatore Ferragamo, the Beverly Center has been a Los Angeles shopping fixture since it opened in 1982. Towering eight stories high, the mall has appeared in numerous films and television shows; it truly is an iconic shopping structure! Bloomingdale's and Macy's are here, too, as well as restaurants that sit mostly on street level. Inside, there's a feeling of spacious grandness and luxury. The best way to experience this huge mall is to go in without an agenda and just stroll -- especially on a hot day, when the cool indoor space just might offer up that perfect little item you've been looking for.
Malls: One of the most upscale of all Los Angeles, California malls, the Beverly Center is home to designer stores like Burberry, D&G, Gucci and Prada. Spread over eight floors, this mall has over one million square feet of shopping and entertainment real estate. Macy's and Bloomingdale's anchor this LA landmark, and dining selections include The Capital Grille, a nationally acclaimed steakhouse. A mix of tourists and the Hollywood hip makes for great people watching.
Shopping Centers: One of Greater LA's premier retail destinations, Beverly Center boasts a level of shopping not normally associated with urban mega-malls. The 160+ name-brand shops include the likes of Hugo Boss and French Connection UK, while anchor stores like Macy's and Bloomingdale's insure that you'll find just about anything you require. Truly a local landmark, the mall spans several blocks in the middle of West Hollywood and boasts the LA area's only California Welcome Center. It also features a 13-screen movie theater.
Local Expert Jenny Peters Says:
Best Shopping: "Park for only $1 for four hours, then jump in an elevator to the sixth floor, as that's where the shops begin in this massive structure. The escalators will take you forever!"
