Beer Belly is a beer bar focused on serving craft beer, and crafty food. We feature craft beers from all over the greater Los Angeles region and are committed to cultivating an appreciation for the quality and creativity that is the foundation of the craft beer movement. To us, craft beer represents a conscious movement of good will and recession-proof merriment. So raise a glass and cheers…to old friends and new.

We’re located at 532 S Western Ave (90020) in the heart of Koreatown, a block and a half north from the historic Wiltern theater (as well as the Wilshire/Western purple line metro stop).

Music Democracy
For those of you with an iPhone be sure to download Apple’s free Remote app and take part in our Music Democracy. Just connect to our wifi network (network name and PW is written on the chalkboard by the front door) and open the Remote app. From there you’ll see the Beer Belly Jukebox and have access to our catalog of music. Pick a song you want to hear, or VOTE for any of the other songs that your fellow Beer Belly patrons have selected. The more votes a song has, the sooner it’ll play.

Ordering Food
Our kitchen closes everyday ONE hour before closing, so if you plan on eating please be sure to allow enough time.

We are family friendly, but unfortunately cannot provide a high chair. It can get pretty crowded here at night so we would suggest coming in the early evening, or perhaps that you and the younger ones can join us for a weekend lunch when we open at 12pm.

Holiday Schedule
We are closed for the following holidays:

  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Day
  • New Year’s Day

We typically try to do something special around the holidays (especially the 4th of July) so keep an eye on our blog for details.
