The music scene in Los Angeles has always played second fiddle to its monolithic movie and TV industry, yet LA produces incredible musical talent. A string of music-centric dining experiences have emerged, offering great music and delicious food. Whether you’re a music enthusiast, a food lover, or simply seeking a memorable night out, get ready to experience the magic of Los Angeles where music and cuisine join to create an extraordinary experience.


EsCaLA, the new hybrid Korean-Columbian restaurant in K-town, is the brainchild of chef Chris Oh and OG Chino, an artist and music producer-turned-entrepreneur. Exuding cool from every corner of the place, EsCaLA takes two wildly different cuisines and harmonizes, with delicious and thought-provoking results. Its ‘Braised Pork Belly Tamales’ will make you a believer, in addition to its Chicken Wings and Ribeye.

Night + Market

Kris Yenbamroong is concocting some incredibly authentic Thai food at his two Night + Market cafes, Night + Market and Night + Market Song, both on Sunset Blvd. The blaring music Yenbamroong plays only adds heat to the already spicy Thai street food being cooked at the unassuming, casual venues. Yenbamroong’s places are all as fun as they are loud and bold in their flavors. Come hungry and curious – some of the best menu items include the ‘Party Wings’, Pork Toro, Crab Fried Rice and Crispy Rice Salad.

Grand Central Market

Located in downtown Los Angeles, Grand Central Market is a bustling food hall that showcases a diverse range of cuisines. It often hosts live music events, with local musicians performing while you savor dishes from various food stalls.

The Mint

Sweet potato fries

Situated in West Los Angeles, The Mint is a small, intimate venue known for its jazz, blues, and rock performances. It features a full-service restaurant that serves delicious food, making it an ideal spot for a night of music and dining.
