Probably the hippest lounge in K-town! Great interior design, unlike anything you've ever seen. Outdoor patio. Amazing drinks. RSVP suggested coz their list gets filled up fast. Best RnB party in LA!

Super trendy lounge in KTown that hosts a dance floor, two bars, outdoor lounge, and numerous wall art for the Instagram and Snapchat queens. The crowd is about 80% Asian and you need to be on a guest list to get in. One of my favorite things about this lounge is that they only allow a limit number of people in so it never feels over crowded. Music the night I went was 2000s hip hop RB and party atmosphere peaked around 11:30pm with the club cleared out around 1am. Parking in garage is $8

Looking for a place to impress the ladies? Apt 503 will not disappoint!

I've heard about Apt 503 for weeks now since they opened, and it seems to be one of the most happening and talked about places in LA. I'm glad I was finally able to check it out and see what all the hype is all about. I felt like I was transformed into a cartoon world as I entered. There's photo ops everywhere in this venue. They have the cutest wallpaper, frames, props, and backdrops for the most instagram-worthy photos!

I really liked how the venue is spaced out nicely so the crowd is pretty dispersed. There's a spacious outdoor patio area with a gazebo, two bars that serve really delicious drinks, and couches and seating everywhere. The parking structure is also adjacent to the venue and there's also plenty of metered parking in the surrounding streets.The only complaint I have about this place is the lack of restrooms. There's only two restrooms and there's always a line forming outside. I would suggest them to make the restroom with several stalls to fix this problem.

Tip* I came on a night where an event was being held, but I heard you have to be on the guest list to get in. Parking in the structure is $2 if validated all day.

The first thing you'll notice is the decor. Everything is hand painted or drawn in black and white like a children's coloring book tempting you to color in between spaces with crayons.
The first feeling you'll get is a home-y feel as it could be someone's apartment on the 5th floor. Kind of like the bungalow in Santa Monica where its basically a huge house party bar. You even get an outdoor experience as the venue itself is connected to an outside patio.
And the first thing you'll taste is their unique set of speciality cocktails. So bust out your cellphone and start taking pictures because that was what APT 503 intended you to do; they even have their own snapchat filter.

Best day of the week to visit this place? Probably on a Thursday as you get to explore the venue in its entirety because Friday and Saturday is packed. With that said, come early and message them on Facebook/email to get on their guest list. APT 503 is a place where you're going to have to bring your women friends as they definitely want to prevent this bar from ever becoming a sausage fest like Line Hotel down the street. They even have a 2nd bathroom for women at the entrance. So for the guys, better start treating your wing women better.

David's one of the nice bartenders. There's something about lady bartenders and attitude in k-town; would it hurt to smile?

Pro Tip: For the ladies who like to eat corn but not have the mess of a cob. They remove the corn for you in their deconstructed elote.

Pro Tip 2: Parking is within the building and with validation its 2 dollars and security will do the stamp.

Tip to Management. Patio has a lot of empty space; if you fill it in with furniture it'll feel more like an apartment.

Apt 503 looks like an apartment out of my girlfriend's Korean drama dreams but with a dance floor and two bars. The bartenders here are really good at their craft and concoct interesting drinks.

Beautiful penthouse style lounge in Korea Town! Impress your friends and head into the large building and take the elevator to the 5th floor to experience one of LA's newest nightlife properties. This is not your pretentious lounge/club but you do need to send them an e-mail to get on the guest list. They always book great open format DJs, the crowd is curated, and the management and security are top notch!

The interior decor is unique as the walls are all hand drawn art and is photo opps galore! It is one huge "living room" with two sides and even a large outdoor patio. They also have a kitchen if you need to grab some bites to go along with their awesome cocktail menu. The DJ booth is AWESOME, a hand drawn boom box.

Pro-Tip: Use the parking garage off of S. Serrano Ave (next to the building). It's only $2 parking validation from Apt 503.

Wow. What a place to throw events in. The cocktails are well-crafter & I enjoyed the Gogobot events thrown at APT503. The ambience, decor, & art is simply phenomenal.

Remember the good ole early 90's music videos.....if you don't, come over to Apt 503! The 2 bar 3 room lounge is completely wallpapered in what looks like a comic strip sketch, complete with restroom, umbrella and zany little details that evoke fun! The bartender/artists are decked out in super cute light denim aprons that speak of their out of the ordinary skills! Dj was jammin all my favorite 90's tunes and it kept me dancing all night!

P.S this is on the 5th floor and when you come out of the elevator don't let the driving range deter you, just make a right and head through the first door through the outside bridge to the next building and viola you are at the entrance!

This is a pretty cool themed lounge/bar/mini club. If you come here on the weekends, it's more like a small club because people start dancing in the main room where the DJ spins. The decor is pretty cool. Definitely something different. And they have a lot of things on the walls that you can take pictures of. They even have a board where you can rearrange the letters, so it provides some sort of interaction for people. They have a pretty large outdoor area for you to chill at, and they bring out heat lamps on cold nights. You can definitely through huge events here as well because they have space for that. As for drink prices, they're on the average side for clubs. Worth checking out if you've never been!

What a cute place to hang out and grab a drink! You feel like you're in a cartoon version of someone's apartment. If you love taking pictures with awesome backgrounds and props, this is the place for you! Girls come dressed in your cute outfits for the best photo ops!

The drinks were delicious and I loved the music as well. It can get pretty busy on the weekends, so come early!

This place has a cool and fun theme. You can find different wall decorations all around the place. Great lighting and sound. A big open top lounge. A little bit cold at night.

Absolutely adorable place! Love that you can lounge indoor or outdoor and see a nice view too. They could however use more bathrooms or make them both unisex.

This place is a bit hard to find but my suggestion is to look for Aroma Golf Range. This is that indoor golf range located on the 5th floor and you’ll eventually come to the right spot – APT 503. This venue does have a parking lot structure that validates for $2 all day. The dress code isn’t strict but do come dressed in your chic outfits because you’ll want to take gazillions of photos! I’m sure you may have seen all the photos on the internet via Instagram, etc but seeing it in person is even better. The presentation is cute and I love how unique the walls are decorated. Although it’s a small venue, if the crowd is good, you’ll definitely a have a good time. I feel like this place is the new “LINE HOTEL” alternative.

I love their drink selections, especially their special list of libations/concoctions. It was super refreshing and tasty! Although I did come for a special event, I heard you do need to be on the guest list which is free to sign up to enter. They play 90’s, R&B and hip hop so be prepared to get your groove on. Too bad the dance floor is rather small but overall, I thought this place was HAAWWTT!

This place I would describe as a two dimensional feel with the walls is as artistic as it's decoration. Very artsy design in a comic type of feel place. A nice bar for the hip world to dance and party at where drinks are available to make you wild. Love the atmosphere and it's great for photo ops everywhere you go. The venue itself sits up on the 5th floor where the place can be used to host events. Lots of hidden little doors decorated into the building of the walls that could lead to other rooms when they are open. Right next door is a driving range and garage.

Probably one of the best Wednesday Nights I've had in a while. APT 503 in collaboration with The B-Side, brought good music with amazing people. I'd come here every day if it was anything like tonight.

REALLY AWESOME!!! Had so much fun here taking pictures in the fake shower. The drinks were great although I thought maybe a little expensive. Came here for a super fun GOGOBOT event. They have free yogurt land and free boba! I was so happy.
