Eagle Rock is a Northeast Los Angeles credited for delivering the right amount of hustle and bustle alongside slow living. It’s named after a large boulder whose shadow looks like an eagle. It’s known for Occidental College, a small liberal arts school that President Obama attended, historic and architecturally significant houses and buildings like the rec center by Richard Neutra, and a superb dining scene. Over the years, the neighborhood continues to blossom and attract young professionals, stroller pushers, and hipsters seeking a place to eat, sleep, and play.
Houses & Architecture
By the 1880s, this neighborhood was ripe for suburbanization. The tree-lined streets are populated with craftsman-style architecture and CA bungalows, with mid-century modern homes sprinkled in between.
Dining & Things to Do
From boutiques to watering holes and all the places where the scene is about being seen, here are some local faves.
Cafe Beaujolais | 1712 Colorado Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90041 |(323) 255-5111
Their motto is “Everything French, but the Attitude,” and they live up to it. Traditional French fare ranges from a rack of lamb, shrimp, and scallops to potatoes au gratin (bien sûr.) Remember, even though the waiters are dreamy, you cannot pair one with your meal.
Casa Bianca | 1650 Colorado Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90041 |(323) 256-9617
It’s a neighborhood institution. The Martorana couple arrived in Eagle Rock in the 1950’s. And there’s a line almost every night waiting to bite into their Chicago thin-crust pizza.
Little Beast | 1496 Colorado Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90041 |(323) 341-5899
An impromptu date and a craving for a rosé on a hot summer night landed me here. I
was delightfully impressed. Undoubtedly, the husband and wife team, Deborah Schwartz-Lowenthal and Chef Sean Lowenthal succeeded in making the Little Beast a great foodie spot.
Eagle Rock Music Festival
Silver Lake had the Sunset Junction festival. Echo Park has Echo Park Rising. So, of course, Eagle Rock has to join the ranks in pleasing its residents with an annual music festival. Thousands congregate on Colorado Blvd to watch and listen to the musical talents of artists like Aloe Blacc.
