Welcome


Japanese kappo-style restaurant and bar in DTLA.

Shibumi is an intimate 40 seat kappo-style restaurant and bar located in the heart of Downtown LA. Guests are invited to enjoy a unique and rare selection of beverages paired with seasonal offerings. The program begins with a quest for the highest quality local, organic, sustainable and locally foraged ingredients. And it finishes with skillful arrangement on handmade ceramics atop a 400-year old cypress counter. Rare delicacies mingle with the familiar, allowing guests entry into the world of Shibumi, where traditional technique is applied to local ingredients and LA flavors.
