Echo Park has more to brag about than its central location, sandwiched between the more upscale neighborhoods of Silver Lake and Downtown Los Angeles. The wave of Eastside trendsetters and trendseekers have transformed the neighborhood—love it or hate it—into a haven for dive bars and casual dining as well as eclectic live music and art galleries. We think you'll find plenty to love in Echo Park, whether you're spending an afternoon at Echo Park Lake or a summer evening at Dodger Stadium.
