Neighborhood Guide: Koreatown


Nestled between Downtown Los Angeles and Mid-Wilshire, Koreatown is jam-packed with places to go, things to do and festivities to be had. We teamed back up with Jack Daniel's to explore it all and give you a guide to our favorite places in the neighborhood!


Eat/Drink

Koreatown has some incredible Korean BBQ, there's no denying it, but the city has so much more to offer. From panda-faced pastries from California Donuts to a Jack Daniel's Whiskey cocktail from Here's Looking at You, here are our favorites.


See/Do

Bowling, karaoke, art studios, spas and more, Koreatown is home to numerous sources of entertainment. Check out our favorite places to visit when we're stopping through Central LA.




Shop

Shop the wide variety of stores in Koreatown's gallerias and plazas or explore the finely curated flagships, the neighborhood has it all! The business owners in the city offer up one-of-a-kind furniture, stationary, and other eclectic goodies.

The Wiltern is Koreatown's central hub of live music. Since its grand-reopening in 2002, the historic theater has been hosting some of the best shows in all of Los Angeles. If you stretch the boundaries of the city borders, you can include concert offerings from the Bootleg Theatre.
