In Los Feliz, it's all about your location relative to Los Feliz
Boulevard. If you're north of it, you're rich; if your south of it,
you're not. Tucked between Hollywood, Silver Lake and the Griffith Park
and the Santa Monica Mountains, Los Feliz has some of the best views of
the city and some of its most-notable watering holes. Go to the
Griffith Observatory, where the they filmed the famous end of "Rebel Without a
Cause" and see the sea and Santa Catalina Island on a good day. If
you've seen the movie "Swingers", you know Los Feliz, with Marty and
Elaine in the piano lounge of the Dresden Room or the swing dancing at
the Derby, one of the last vestiges of the extinct Brown Derby chain of
restaurants. Like pie? So does Quentin Tarantino, who wrote "Reservoir
Dogs" in the House of Pies on North Vermont. The diner is still an
afternoon hangout for laptop scribblers. To go farther back in movie
history, stop by the Tam O'Shanter on Los Feliz Boulevard, where stars
such as Tom Mix, Fatty Arbuckle and Mary Pickford were regulars back
when you had to take a dirt road to get there. Of course, Los Feliz is
also the home of the Y-Que Trading Post on Vermont.
