North Hollywood is a district in the San Fernando Valley located in the city of Los Angeles. Despite the similar name, North Hollywood does not share a border with Hollywood, which is located several miles to the southeast.

Get in

North Hollywood is the terminus for both the Metro Rail Red Line and the Metro Orange Line busway.

Get around

The NoHo Arts District is walkable

See

Circus Liquor
  • Art in the NoHo Art Gallery on Lankershim.
  • Circus Liquor, 5600 Vineland Ave, +1 818 769-1500. A local landmark that has been used in a number of movies (most notably in Clueless), noted for its rather sinister-looking 30-foot neon clown sign out front.

Do

North Hollywood is known for its numerous small independent theatres. The most famous is the El Portal on Lankershim and Weddington.

Buy

Small boutiques and thrift shops are found along Lankershim between Chandler and Camarillo, and along Magnolia between Tujunga and Vineland. Some of the shops are being replaced by newer trendy shops as North Hollywood gentrifies.

Eat

Along Lankershim can be found several gems including Vicious Hot Dogs, Big Mama's and Papa's Pizza, Eclectic Wine Bar, and Salomi Indian Restaurant.

North of the gentrified "Arts District" is a working-class neighborhood largely populated by Latinos. Delicious authentic street food can be found along such streets as Vineland (north of Burbank) including numerous taco trucks and bacon-wrapped hot dogs. These are affordable options that are usually open late.

Drink

  • Tonga Hut, Victory (at Coldwater Canyon). 1950's tiki bar.
  • Big Wang's, Lankershim (at Chandler). Beer, wings, and sports.
  • Skinny's. Hip neighborhood lounge.
