Named after the neighborhood’s iconic rock formation of an eagle taking flight, Eagle Rock offers a peaceful respite from the bustle of downtown Los Angeles. The area’s adjacency to Silverlake and Glendale means that residents are still close to leisurely venues like Griffith Park and The Americana at Brand. Eagle Rock also has the appeal of a quaint college town since it is also the home of Occidental College.


The Oinkster is one of Eagle Rock's longstanding businesses


With towering views of the San Gabriel Mountains, Eagle Rock is a small town set in the fabric of Los Angeles. The name even sounds like it’s far away from the frenetic energy of Downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood. With quaint craftsman bungalows and Spanish style casitas, Eagle Rock homes are all over the spectrum. It’s one of the most popular places to live on the Eastside of Los Angeles because of its strong small business community and plentiful schools.

Eagle Rock's business districts are lively and walkable
Eagle Rock is a dining and drinking destination


Eagle Rock is a bustling neighborhood with art galleries, unique shops and restaurants. Food and dining is a highlight here — Cacao Mexicatessen’s duck carnitas tacos are the stuff of legend, Know Reality Pie is a not-well-hidden secret spot, The Oinkster is a fast food bucket list spot, Found Coffee brews strong cups, and locals go to Eagle Rock Brewery or Craft Beer Cellar for pints. Museums in Pasadena are just a couple miles away, including Kidspace Museum and the Norton Simon Museum.
