Glendale's own popular version of mid-town L.A.'s famous Grove is a stylish outdoor mall featuring local high-end restaurant chains and trendy shopping for fashions, home-wares and gadgets. A good eight miles east of Tinseltown's brightest glare, celebrities like Eva Mendes, Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber seem to feel more relaxed here, hanging out on patios at restaurants like Frida's Mexican Cuisine and Katsuya Sushi, or combing through the racks and shelves at shops like Gilly Hicks, Sephora and Abercrombie & Fitch.
Product launches and movie promotions are a common occurrence here, attracting stars like Katy Perry, Jennifer Aniston and even director Steven Spielberg. Gigi's Farmers Market attracts a family-friendly crowd with its petting zoo every Saturday (10 a.m.–2 p.m.), and the Brand's evening popularity on Fridays and Saturdays make dinner reservations a must; a dancing, neon-lit fountain, live musicians performing on a grassy knoll, and twinkling lights in the trees make this a great spot for date night.
The mall’s huge, covered parking lot offers 2 hours free with store or restaurant validation.
The best route to take by transit: Bus: 180/181, 780, 92, 183, 201.
