Koreatown, located west of Downtown LA and south of Hollywood, is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Encompassing roughly 3 square miles, the area was once the epicenter of Golden Age Hollywood, home to the Ambassador Hotel, the Cocoanut Grove and the Brown Derby. Today, Korean and Latino populations contribute to Koreatown’s rich cultural diversity. K-town is also known for having one of the largest concentration of nightclubs and 24-hour businesses and restaurants in the country. Even frequent visitors have only scratched the surface of this vibrant district. Discover Koreatown with our guide to one of LA’s most exciting neighborhoods.

The young Korean American entrepreneurs of Seoul Sausage were named the champions of Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race, Season 3.
