Los Angeles, California, is one of the most frequently visited vivacious tourist destinations in the world due to its extensive filmmaking history, theatre glamour, energetic culture and diversity, world-class cuisines, rich history, artistic expression, beautiful landscapes, a wide array of beaches, fantastic weather and its close proximity to dozens of attractions, theme parks, beaches and much more. During your stay, be sure to visit The Hon Shabu Shabu and Zipper Concert Hall.

Visit The Hon Shabu Shabu and Zipper Concert Hall

Treat yourself to a wonderful night out in downtown Los Angeles, and feel like a star, with a mouth-watering gourmet meal and live local entertainment. The Hon Shabu Shabu is a hidden gem, located in the heart of downtown. While the exterior of the building may not look exciting, the interior is gloriously decorated Modern Chic with beautiful cultural artwork, a dozen high-definition flat screen televisions, large open table seating or slightly more intimate bar-style seating. Open from 11:30am-2: 30 pm for lunch service, and again from 5:30-9:30 for dinner service, The Hon offers fresh, local ingredients that guests cook themselves. Each seat includes a miniature stove-top so guests can add delectable meats, fresh seafood, handmade noodles, and crisp vegetables to a seasoned soup base to create their own unique hotpot cuisine to be served with a wide variety of delicious dipping sauces and their choice of steamed white or purple rice. Guests can choose to add any of the many condiments provided on the table, and may dare to test a fiery chili oil that must be requested from staff. One of the most popular menu items is the Combo NaBe which includes several thin slices of tender Angus Beef, a large variety of seafood (shrimp, scallops, mussels and a large portion of salmon, to name a few), fresh assorted vegetables (king oyster mushrooms, crisp napa cabbage, firm tofu, mini corn, chopped green onions, kabocha squash, and more) and Udon noodles. Other popular dishes include seafood salads, rice bowls, Yaki Udon, delicious appetizers, and unique cocktails. Don’t forget to save room for dessert. Enjoy a large selection of mochi ice cream, tempura bananas dusted with powdered sugar, or the most popular Korean pancake - a pan-fried sweet bread made with a brown sugar syrup and dusted with cinnamon. 

After a delicious dinner, walk over to Zipper Concert Hall, located at the Colburn School of Music. Experience a truly intimate setting (up to 700 person capacity) with uncomparable acoustics, modern interior design, and comfortable seats and enjoy live music performances by local artists and students of the school. Orchestra and Jazz performances occur multiple times each week. Country, Folk and Rock music performances are more popular during the weekends. Check the schedule to plan your night out, or stop by for a pleasant musical surprise. Should you need to exit the hall for any reason, rest assured you won’t miss the performance. Multiple monitors are located around the isles and outside the hall and on the exterior patio. The exterior patio is elegantly decorated with climbing vines, string-lights and bar seating, and is the perfect post-performance soiree venue.
