HISTORY


Famous for its signature Korean style deep-fried chicken, The Prince has made its mark as the go-to restaurant for chicken and beer. No one in the area has not heard of The Prince—hop into a cab at the airport and ask the driver to take you to the best place for deep-friedchicken, and you are guaranteed to end up at The Prince.

 

Having first opened its doors in the 1920s as The Windsor, The Prince has established a name for itself in Los Angeles. Previous American presidents have dined here, and it is not uncommon to see wealthy individuals and Hollywood A-listers at this Los Angeles gem. In fact, it has been used for many TV series and movie productions, such as Criminal Minds (CBS), The Defenders (CBS), Mad Men (AMC), The New Girl (Fox), Eagleheart (Adult Swim), Chinatown (1974), Thank You for Smoking (2005), and Prime Suspect (NBC), Anthony Bourdain’s new show The Layover (Travel Channel) and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013), among others.

 

Walk into The Prince and find yourself immersed within a classical antique décor – the red and gold walls, paintings, the red circular booths as well as the vintage lighting set the interior apart from all other restaurants. The Prince, in addition, has a decorative bar in the center of the hall where people can drink and cheer on their favorite sports team. Despite its location at Koreatown, its access is by no means limited to Koreans in the area. Many from Hollywood or West Los Angeles stop by The Prince, especially on weekends, and the bar constantly gets filled by both Koreans and non-Koreans. A back bar is also available where parties can be held with the service of a private bartender. Speaker equipments are provided for private parties, and guests can also enjoy the live piano music available several days a week. Song requests are taken by the pianist allowing everyone to enjoy their favorite songs. 

 

With its antique atmosphere and unbeatable prices, it is no wonder that The Prince has been continuously acknowledged for its exceptional food, service, and, above all, ambience. When in Los Angeles, be sure to try our signature chicken dish and enjoy the royal Prince experience.
