Union Station's Cocoa Concerts Feature Free Holiday Music And Hot Chocolate

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.


Union Station will provide hot cocoa until your mug runneth over and free, holiday concerts throughout the month of December. Union Station has been attempting to position itself as more than a transit hub, and it's been working. Not only is the station beautiful, but new dining options and free concerts and film screenings—like the film noir series featuring movies shot within the station—give us a reason to linger.

The Cocoa Concert Series will take place on the south patio, where you'll find festive elements such as a Christmas tree, ugly sweater contests, photo booths and selfies with Santa. There will also be a cocoa bar where elves will dole out endless hot chocolate.

The dates are as follows:

Friday, December 9, 6 to 8 p.m.: A Classic Holiday Sing-A-Long with the carolers from Music Companie
Friday, December 16, 6 to 8 p.m.: A Swinging Holiday Performance from the Dixieland, ragtime and swing act California Feetwarmers
Friday, December 23, 6 to 8 p.m.: A Very Salsa Christmas with La Picante
