Sit and soak at the top Korean spas in Koreatown

Ready, set, sweat: Check out the top Korean spas that Koreatown has to offer

By Katherine Kims and Time Out contributors

Korean spas are a dime-a-dozen in Koreatown, and going to these hot saunas is one of the unique things to do in Los Angeles. Kalbi, kimchi and KBBQ are just as much a part of Korean culture and the Koreatown experience as hot plunge pools and herbal steams. And with the popularity and late-night hours of the co-ed jimjilbang (communal heated rooms), a trip to the Korean spa might be your after-hours stop after a crawl of the city’s best bars, a hangover cure to sweat out last night’s debauchery or an all-day (and cheap) destination for rest and relaxation.
