one of the interesting buldings to watch. Unless you plan ahead and book a show, you wounld feel the true essense of the accoustics. Right in the downtown so plan ahead for parking, even on a late saturday night we had to take couple of rounds around the parking lots.

We went to hear Gustavo Dudamel conduct the Russian romantics one evening and then heard Handels Messiah another night. Both experiences were fantastic. The acoustics here make no seat a poor choice. The outdoor garden is delightful as well.

From the exterior, this wonderful structure (which to me always looked like a ship, but I have been told was meant by the architect to resemble a rose) seems like it should house only the most modern of music performances. But one of the best kept secrets is how phenomenal the sound is for any kind of performance, regardless of... More

Located right next the The Broad, just walk a couple extra meters and take a look at this architectural masterpiece!

Excellent warm acoustics which made the concert of LAPhil a sheer pleasure. I was impressed how fluently they managed to make leave an audience of about 2K after the concert. Ten minutes after the applause we were in our car out of the garage.

Excellent venue. Most seats are good or better, even up high. Can be pricey, but well worth a visit if you've never gone. We also go for morning rehearsals which are great to watch.

This is one of Frank Gehry's great buildings, and an amazing place to hear a concert. The acoustics are like nothing i've heard in any hall, and the building is dazzling to behold. Amazing.

Before a concert, we visit a cafeteria like dining room athr Disney Concert Hall. We feel the food is over priced and, while professionally prepared (by Patina) it lacks sizzel. A salad bar the never changes, nice soups. The people are nice but something is missing. Then lets talk about the actual dining room. Dark, depressing. Built when the money... More

We caught the Nutcracker here and we very much enjoyed the show. The venue itself is superb. The acoustics were more than satisfactory and even the worst seats have a good view of the stage. The architecture is impressive. All in all definitely one of the things to take and if you are in or living in Los Angeles. One... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
