Los Angeles Spotlight: Koreatown
Twenty-four-hour restaurants are just the beginning. Koreatown is home to an incredible nightlife, from dive bars and high-end cocktail speakeasies to karaoke clubs and foreign culinary delights. In fact, Koreatown is said to have the highest concentration of restaurants and nightclubs in Southern California.
Residents also enjoy multiple transportation options, including direct access to major Metro subway and bus lines, as well as three district-to-district DASH routes. Koreatown's central location means residents are also close to downtown Los Angeles (3 miles), Hollywood (4 miles), Santa Monica Beach (12 miles) and Los Angeles International Airport (16 miles).
