Atwater Village is a crescent-shaped neighborhood lined by the Los Angeles River to the west and San Fernando Blvd to the east. Its bordering areas include Glendale, Silver Lake, and Los Feliz. Atwater Village is noted for its proximity to the Interstate 5, State Route 134 and Interstate 110 freeways. Before its establishment in the early 20th century, Atwater Village was merely a poppy field, perhaps due to its proximity to the fertile Los Angeles River flood plain. As urban sprawl continued, the streetcars arrived and Spanish-style houses were built. The Tam O’Shanter Inn has served hearty pub fare with a Scottish flair since 1922 and is considered one of L.A.'s oldest restaurants. Walt Disney loved the Tam-O, as it is known for short. Today, Atwater continues to attract aspiring homeowners looking for historic real estate and a cozy sense of community. On weekends, the neighborhood’s epicenter of activity, Glendale Boulevard, comes alive: locals line up for breakfast burritos, head to yoga class or peruse the weekly farmer's market. In the last few years the area has continued to see the addition of new businesses, shops and restaurants, solidifying Atwater’s status as true pocket of Angeleno-style bohemia.
