The Cho Brothers, (Lord Kimchi & Chosun), grew up as skaters listening to punk and hip-hop music. Their regular routine of tuning into Video Music Box & Red Alert on the radio and crate digging for music, paved the way towards eventually meeting some the most legendary architects of Hip Hop. The Cho’s wanted to pay homage to their Hip Hop roots, the DJ culture, and to their Korean heritage, while also embracing the future. Fat Buddha Bar came about at a perfect time and became a hub for like-minded creatives, where diverse groups of friends could meet one another and congregate. At Fat Buddha, you will often find yourselves crossing paths with renown Hip Hop MC’s, Producers, Graffiti and Street Artists, Chefs and Influencers.
