Nearly as exclusive as Rodeo Drive but with a younger and hipper vibe, Robertson Boulevard features a two-block stretch of exclusive boutiques and restaurants that has become a shopping mecca for young Hollywood and reality star wannabes.

Visitors are almost certain to catch a starlet or two flitting in and out of uber-trendy boutiques like Kitson, Diavolina, and Intermix, not to mention the cavalcade of lithe girls mimicking the “who wore it better pages” from the supermarket celeb rags.

Beautiful people aside, the boulevard has plenty of other eye candy to offer, mostly in the form of high-end autos growling up and down the street, or parked in front of the paparazzi-staked Ivy restaurant – LA’s quintessential “let’s do lunch” spot.

Although power brokers gather on the patio to see and be seen, other restaurants like the swanky Asian-fusion Chaya Brasserie and the chic deli joint Cuvee are also good bets for stargazers.

Arguably the hippest shopping district in ultra-fashion conscious LA, Robertson Boulevard is the perfect destination for both serious shoppers and the merely curious looking to enjoy a slice of celebrity life.

Tip from Adriana:

For a high-powered industry lunch vibe and celebrity spotting, make a reservation at The Ivy (113 North Robertson Boulevard) well in advance. If possible, have the hostess seat you on the rose-covered, white picket-fenced patio – and be sure to try the crab cakes.

  • Crowd

    Affluent shoppers, celebrities, showbiz types, paparazzi, and some tourists, mostly female, 20s to 50s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    None.

    Many dining options on Robertson Boulevard and adjacent streets, including Italian eatery Il Piccolino (350 North Robertson Boulevard), traditional American staple Newsroom Café (120 North Robertson Boulevard), and Jack n' Jill's Too (8738 West Third Street) for patio brunching.

  • Prices

    Restaurants range from reasonable to expensive. Retail stores on the pricey side.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Trendy shopping attire: designer jeans and heels, cute tops, and light dresses for girls, fashionable t-shirts or button-downs for guys.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Late morning or afternoon.

  • Close By

    Cecconi’s Italian restaurant (8764 Melrose Avenue) is an “it” spot for high-end dining and celebrity sightings.

Great place

Like Rodeo Drive, Robertson Drive is also a small area with lots of neat shops and restaurants. Lining both sides of the street on two short blocks are boutiques that cater to a younger clientele than Rodeo Drive ranging from hip children’s clothing to adult men and women’s clothing. Two of my favorite stores are Splendid and Kitson – super cute clothes that are more affordable than other high end stores. The famous restaurant, The Ivy, is also on Robertson Drive. It is highly touted but I would avoid eating there at all costs! It is outrageously expensive and the food is disappointing. I think more tourists eat there than movie stars.
Lots of shopping!

Robertson Boulevard has shops on shops on shops. There are many high end stores such as Chanel and Madison, but you will also find cheaper boutiques as well as popular stores like Kitson and LF. There are a few different lunch spots on Robertson, but one you cannot forget is The Ivy. It's small yet very delicate with its homely colors and lets not forget the waiters in their pink button downs. The food is very good, especially pastas, but is EXTREMELY over priced. When you go to The Ivy it is mostly for the experience and more than often star sightings. Go to Robertson for a fun and more adventurous day!
Shop til you drop

Robertson Boulevard is the perfect street to go to satisfy all your shopping needs. There’s All Saints, a cool, hip British brand that consistently designs awesome combat style boots. One of my favorite Robertson Boulevard staples is Intermix. This is one of three locations in Los Angeles. Intermix carries trendy brands like Equipment, Helmut Lang, and J Brand. There’s also Curve, a high-end designer store with gorgeous jewelry. Everything in here is to die for. Other retail stores on Robertson Boulevard include Zimmermann, a great swimwear store, Paige Denim, LF, and of course Kitson. Cuvee is a great lunch spot on Robertson. They have wide selection of small deli salads as well as normal lunch sized salads like their famous spicy Caesar with shrimp. What’s great about Robertson Boulevard is its central location. It runs perpendicular to 3rd street making it close to one of my favorite LA stores, Madison, and another great lunch spot, Joan’s on Third. So, when in need of a little retail therapy (or a lot of it), check out Robertson Boulevard and make a day out of it. You’ll probably catch paparazzi trying to snap a shot of Kim Kardashian or Rachel Zoe.
Great Shopping

My favorite place to go shopping! There's a mix of high and moderately priced boutiques. I always head to Intermix and LF to get clothes. Intermix carries high end brands, as well as less expensive brands and LF gives off a cool LA vibe. There is also a Chanel store and Kitson. The famous restaurant The Ivy is located on Robertson Blvd. and is a great place to people watch. Paparazzi are always in front waiting for celebrities to make an appearance. Even though this restaurant is over priced, its still fun to check out.
My favorite shopping
Rachel S. Nov 30, 2012
Roberston is one of my favorite places to go shopping. There are a variety of different stores located on the boulevard. I love coming on a day with my friends and walking up and down the street. We usually stop into kitson and grab some lunch. It is also great to come here when you need to get your hair done for a party and also look for a dress. Great restaurants are located nearby and you are for sure going to see a celebrity or two while you are here. I would love to live closer to this area because it is beautiful and hip.
Expensive
Georgina S. Nov 28, 2012
Robertson is definitely a treat. And by that I mean, you can't indulge too often or too much. It's extremely pricey. I like to window shop if I have an hour to kill while in the area. I LOVE bikinis so I always try on bikinis in Beach Bunny....but can't afford them on a college girl's salary. Of course there is LF, but I'm underwhelmed by LF because they already have one close to my parent's house in Bel Air. I love Robertson though. I love seeing the trendy moms always dressed to the 9's. It is also possible that you may run into a few paparazzi as Robertson is very popular with the stars. I love the restaurants in the area, as they are health conscious and beautifully presented. If I had the money to shop here, I'd go here more often.
Happy closet, sad wallet

Ah Robertson, I wish I could go here every weekend. With its mix of great boutique-style shops and upscale restaurants, it is any fashionista's ideal shopping destination. Some favorites are Kitson, LF, and for lunch, The Ivy. The Ivy is so delicious, but once I tried ordering the most basic items on the menu and it still cost $75 bucks so beware. It is also very scene-y, meaning that if you go often enough your chances of running into a celebrity are very high. Also it is very walk-able so it is nice to get outside while you shop, especially when the weather is good. Not too far from The Grove either!
Pricey but great shopping experience.
Lilly G. Nov 21, 2012
Overall its great shopping if you have the money to spend! Its pretty expensive, but if you pride yourself on your wardrobe this is definitely the place to come. Kitson, LF, and lots of other amazing stores all within a short walk. Theres also plenty of cute eatery's and a couple restaurants when you decide you need a little refreshment break from shopping! Gorgeous location and lots of street parking nearby. If you want the typical Beverly Hills shopping experience this is a great place to go with a group of girl friends or even your mom. The stores are more catered to a young (late teen-late 20's) demographic so be mindful of that. In general, great shopping experience but be prepared to spend quite a bit of money!
Shopping!
Sammi T. Nov 13, 2012
The shopping here is so great. The stores are incredible and there are some fun little boutiques included in the mix as well. Also, people watching here is great and I love stopping into LF to check out the latest shipments. It's fun and a great way to spend part of your day to come to Robertson. Would definitely recommend!
Great Shopping Place!! Beautiful
Jade W. Nov 12, 2012
Robertson Boulevard is the best. It is in a great location and has amazing stores and restaurants. Robertson has nice stores, but they are not as high end as Rodeo which makes it a better place if you want nice clothes but don't want to spend too much money. There are many awesome restaurants including the Ivy and it is a beautiful street to walk down. It's a great street for people walking and also has some famous and great hair salons. You can find almost anything you need on Robertson and it is attached to Melrose if you are looking for more vintage clothing. Robertson is also very close to the Beverly Center so if you want to have a full day of shopping there are many options in that area. Overall, Robertson Boulevard is a great street and one of my favorite place to shop in Los Angeles!
Dont we all have to do it once?
Brent L. Oct 5, 2012
Its not a huge strip of great shops on Robertson--and really if you are shopping here, youve bought into the hype, and need help. But that said, the foods excellent and the people watching is AMAZING. A parade of Kardashians in training and the occasional Paris Hilton impersonator (or actually her, hard to tell these days, is it just me or do trannys really sometimes pull it off?) will keep you busy and people watching ALL day. Stop at the coffee bean, its worth the squat to over hear writers meeting their agents and young people excited they just saw Biebers car drive by.
Shopping out/restaurants in

Couldn't care less about the shopping options on Robertson. The food - that's a different story. We'll start just off Robertson and 3rd at Jack & Jill's II. Great crepes, perfect way to start the day. Right on the corner is Cuvee, perfect spot for lunch - fresh seafood, pastas, sandwiches, etc. Further north you have Chaya - really solid happy hour, dinner is just whatever. Further up is The Ivy - the sceniest lunch spot in LA - $30 for a salad. But you might spot a celeb. You'll definitely see paparazzi outside. The Newsroom cafe is further up north - I think all their food is too clever. Every sandwich has at least one extra ingredient it doesn't need. If you keep going past Beverly, you'll hit Cicconi. Hands down the best ricotta pancakes you'll ever eat in your entire life.
Primo Shopping and People-Watching
Sara G. Aug 2, 2012
Shopping (or window shopping) along Robertson, specifically between Burton Way and Beverly Blvd is some of the best in LA, no matter your style. There's everything from American Apparel, to Tory Burch, to Lisa Kline, and (of course) Kitson. If you go a bit further north on Robertson, you'll find John Varvatos and the fabulous Cecconi's (right across the street). Can't accord to step foot in half of these stores? Their windows have chic displays....and you can always pretend to look at the clothes, while actually looking at the celebrities shopping inside. :) With enough laps/calories burnt, there should be no hesitation indulging in lunch. Cuvee has a great outdoor patio - although I prefer to make it a liquid lunch and have a few Chaya martinis. (Just be careful on the martinis - Robertson is a dangerous shopping zone to have a lapse in judgement!) For a healthier alternative, Newsroom (across from The Ivy) has great salads. Either way, Robertson is fabulous - no matter what you can actually afford!
