LOS ANGELES | What is this? A castle in the middle of Los Angeles? This is what I was thinking when I walked past this structure in Koreatown. It is, in fact, Chapman Market, one of the first markets in the world designed with the automobile in mind.

The Spanish Revival building opened in 1929, with a fortress-like façade, fountains/statues, gardens, patios, and ornate Churrigueresque towers. Customers drove in through a large archway to find high ceilings, arched windows, double-wide hallways, and a courtyard car park surrounded by various grocers.

The Plaza was heritage listed in 1988, renovated/restored in 1990, and further renovated in 2018. Today it’s home to an assortment of Korean restaurants and bars, and that large car park.

It’s one of the few examples of Spanish Revival architecture remaining in Los Angeles, and truly unique place to visit when you’re in town.
