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.
The Prince is an LA landmark and truly unique establishment. Opened in the 1920's and formerly known as the Windsor, this Koreatown bar and restaurant is one of a kind. Decor is dark red rococo mid century Americana, with large booths and old world paintings covering the walls.
The prince 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)
Mad Men is set in the 1960s, initially at the fictional Sterling Cooper advertising agency on Madison Avenue in New York City, and later at the newly created firm, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, located nearby in the Time-Life Building, at 1271 Avenue of the Americas. According to the show's pilot, the phrase "mad men" was a slang term coined in the 1950s by advertisers working on Madison Avenue to refer to themselves. The focal point of the series is Don Draper, creative director at Sterling Cooper and a founding partner at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, and the people in his life, both in and out of the office. The plot focuses on the business of the agencies as well as the personal lives of the characters, regularly depicting the changing moods and social mores of the United States in the 1960s.
