Beverly Soju Time Dials Up the Booze in Koreatown

Cheap beer and Korean bar bites, right this way.

It’s soju time in Koreatown — well, at least on one major thoroughfare — as the aptly-named Beverly Soju Time has quietly begun to make a name for itself in the former Kodoku Roll strip mall space. Now dimly lit and keeping evening hours only, the new eatery sports a light-up sign out front and a party inside.

It's a sharp departure from the previous tenant that occupied the space on the corner of Beverly and Hobart, which was opting for blown-out sushi rolls covered in cheap fish and thick sauces. Instead, the menu now is a mix of Koreatown favorites meant to be enjoyed over lots of beer and soju, from pork belly kimchi to chicken wings, plus newfangled options like a bulgogi quesadilla. There are even $1 oysters, and a 50% off happy hour.

Inside, the bar has been stripped down to some dark wood and string lights, with communal tables and lots of room to party. Hours are currently 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. six nights a week (apparently they’re not open on Sunday).
