A good place to experience the natural habitat of the Valley Girl. While it is primarily a hangout and a melting pot for all the valley's youth, the Galleria also houses a popular multiplex (recently transformed into an ArcLight featuring over 21 theatres where drinks are allowed), a furniture store, a few clothing stores, and several restaurants. A perfect spot to grab dinner and a movie if you're in the area.
A store in the California chain specializing in novelty items, cards, and all sorts of other interesting junk. Worth a visit for collectors or fans of the weird. Their merchandise can either be a bargain or a ripoff, so think before buying.
A thrift store popular with the indie scene. A great stop if you've got some clothes to give up, or if you're looking for some cheap new threads. A second store opened up in Westwood rather recently.
Open since 1958, the restaurant offers reasonably priced Mexican food with strong but otherwise average margaritas. No reservations, and the wait can be long on weekends.
Ultrazone is a laser tag facility that is open for laser tag games as well as birthday parties. There is also a video game arcade there.
A pricey yet very tasty place, particularly known for its breakfasts. Expect a high-class dining experience and a slightly older crowd.
Known for its pizza, made with traditional ingredients. The pasta dishes are also good and follow traditional recipes.
Open for lunch and dinner. A lively Greek restaurant with good food and dancing waiters. Complimentary valet parking.
Featuring everything from sauteed shrimp to stuffed crepes to daily fish specials at moderate prices.
A French cafe with a separate bar. Lunches are simple, while the dinner menu is more upscale.
Excellent unpretentious and reasonably priced Mexican food, much beloved by Valley natives.
