EATER LA

Do enough wandering in Koreatown soon and you might just stumble into The Venue, a spot so low key they didn’t even give it a big new name — let alone a normal entrance. No, to get into Koreatown’s newest karaoke star, you’ll have to access the basement restaurant/bar/singing lounge via a private stairwell right off Wilshire Boulevard. But isn’t that half the fun?
