Shopping Mall
Built around the old LA Farmers' Market, The Grove has become one of Los Angeles' most popular outdoor malls. Built in 2002, the open-space mall carries a wide range of products and eateries popular with locals and tourists alike. Check out the Farmers' Market, which originally opened in 1934 and still contains over 100 eateries and grocery stores. If you're looking for a healthy treat, you will find plenty of organic and gluten-free food. The mall also contains a large multiplex cinema as well as many flagship stores. Make sure to take a ride on the old-fashioned tram that carries passengers between the market and the main mall complex.

  • To my personally I did not like at all the place, literal is a House and these in the 2 rooms that exist or standing patio. And if you arrive to place in any time can get someone with more money than you or which appears to have him and take his place only because the says it. Nothing pleasant experience, not definately.

  • Enjoyed this open-air shopping area. Lots of the usual chain-type stores with two major dept stores (Nordstrom and another one I forget). Huge American Girl doll store there too. Nice movie theater. A...  more »

  • Magical! I love The Grove. It is the most exquisite and beautiful shopping center I've seen, except for The Americana at Brand (same company). It's outdoors, with the buildings encircling a grassy area with a fountain and pond, and tracks for a trolley that goes around the shopping area. It feels so old timey with the trolley and modern with the sleek shops all at once. They hold many events in the main area throughout the area, oftentimes with celebrities! They also offer towels for laying out on the grass. I love it! Best shopping center ever.
  • Everyone knows that The Grove is a great shopping destination. But when you're looking for a great place to take the kids for some fun holiday themed pictures, there is no better place! We took our little one there this weekend, and in spite of the drizzle (yes, that rare LA occurrence) he had an amazing time posing with Halloween themed scenes located throughout the center. There must have been at least a dozen scenes with Halloween scenes with bales of hay and pumpkins so there was no waiting and ample time to get super cute photos. Truly, no better place to head for a very photo opp rich environment around all of the holidays!
  • The Grove always makes for a fun evening of shopping, eating and just plain chilling L.A style! If you have time, take the trolley tour... provided it is a quick one (10 minutes) but its still cool.
  • This is a really nice mall place to spend the day/afternoon. The place is most of the time packed with local visitors and tourist, I've been going to The Grove for over 14 years since a friend of mine took me to enjoy come Crepes with Coffee at the Farmers Market nearby. The are plenty of shops ranging from Fashion to Tech accessories, they are really nice places to eat at different budgets, if you feel like catching the most recent blockbuster movie, there is a movie theater with more than 10 screening rooms. There is convenient valet parking or if you are feeling adventurous you can try to find parking yourself which can be a task of couple of minutes due to high demand of visitors of this place. There is also a Barnes and Noble which is my favorite place to kill couple of hours reading while enjoying a cup of joe.
  • If you love a highly refined commercial corporate shopping experience, this place will make you happy. All of the attractive, wealthy people, wearing all of their attractive, new clothes, all of the lovely upscale restaurants, none of the so readily available negative elements of the city anywhere to be seen. However, I do not love that experience. Therefore I give it two stars, but that's just me. Anyone else would probably give it five stars because it has all of the right brands. Advice: Never try to take pictures from the roof of their parking garage. That is apparently against the rules, and security will come and very playful he had officially escort you from the property.
