Mama Lion is a fancy restaurant/bar/lounge in Ktown, and despite a bunch of hype surrounding the place, we can confirm it’s completely empty. The cocktails and the food are both fine, but the space is large and clubby, the drinks are expensive, and the whole operation is trying desperately to be a part of a scene that doesn’t actually exist. This is Ktown - anyone who wants to party like they’re in Hollywood will just drive 10 minutes north to the actual thing.
