Dining & Staying in Downtown L.A.

Consider our restaurant partners before your next visit to the Ahmanson Theatre or Mark Taper Forum in Downtown L.A.

The Music Center Plaza features a variety of dining options for your enjoyment before and after a performance.

Abernethy's is a full-service restaurant that features good eats plated by up-and-coming Los Angeles chefs to create a one-of-a-kind culinary arts adventure. A new chef with a new menu is featured every quarter.

The Mullin Wine Bar serves specialty wines curated by some of L.A.’s best wine shops, muddled cocktails created by L.A.’s finest mixologists, and a rotating array of small plates provided by several of L.A.’s most popular food trucks.

Cocina Roja, The Music Center’s outdoor Latin grill inspired by the flavors and unique spirit of Mexico City, is open for service two hours prior to all performances at the Ahmanson and Taper. Cocina Roja is located on the northeast end of The Music Center campus in the Los Angeles Times Garden courtyard, which is next to the Ahmanson and adjacent to Grand Avenue.

Visit MusicCenter.org/Plaza for detailed information about all of the Plaza options.
