The Grove


shopping_cart_presents_261532_l1.jpgThe Grove earned its place as one of LA’s most popular shopping centers by offering something for everyone. There is not only a farmer’s market full of produce and fresh made crepes, pizza and other standard farmer’s market fare, for those of you who have left your holiday shopping until today, a series of department stores, clothing stores for men and women, electronics and book stores.

And the selection does not end there. There is a museum celebrating the movie industry with artifacts from television and film productions that have firmly embedded themselves in our culture and seasonal decorations that demonstrate a fervent commitment to holidays.

The Grove is also home to one of the most advanced movie theaters in Hollywood, where the seats are large and plush and the picture is crisp and the tickets are expensive. Because of the quality of the showings, The Grove Theater attracts a dedicated type of moviegoer and those moviegoers in turn attract pre-release movies where directors, producers and actors gauge audience reactions. Ever see that a movie is on “limited release,” which means that it’s only playing in New York and LA? It’s a good bet that it’s playing at The Grove.

The Grove


the grove pub in AthloneThe Grove is another one of those off-the-beaten track pubs that most visitors miss.

With portraits of James Dean and the western frontier on the walls, this is a pub decorated during the era when Ireland held the idea of the states – its idea, its songs and its music – in reverence. In the style of vintage pubs in Ireland, the Grove has both a bar and a Lounge section. You enter the front door and take a right to enter the bar or a left to enter the lounge. This division served in the past to divide the social centres of the pub in Irish life. Nowadays it’s hardly done. In fact, I’d say it’s safe to say there’s not a single modern pub that does it.
