Intimate concert venue located in the arena (formerly known as the Staples Center). Came here with a friend to see The Band Camino on a Friday evening and we got tickets for the balcony via Ticketmaster. Note that you have to go up the escalators to go inside. Paid parking is available in the venue, or you can try your luck with metered street parking if you’re feeling lucky. If you get a balcony seat, it’s free for all seating up until the first 4 or so rows at the front, as that’s reserved for the VIP box area. You can take elevators up or there’s also stairs. Bathrooms are available at both levels.

Proof of Covid vaccination is required. Credit cards are accepted. They do have bar areas that serve hard seltzers and beers. The acoustics were nice, although at certain points in the performance, it felt like the balcony was shaking due to the crowd.

Overall, it’s a fairly small venue but I would still recommend getting there early to nab good spots. Enjoy!

Been here a few times awesome venue .. pricey drinks...they don't sell food just snacks. They make you buy the water because that tap water on ice is enjoy the show!

Big, nice modern venue, but definitely with some downsides.

The biggest one is the pit situation for GA shows. If it's a sold out show, unless you're literally one of the first in line (so BEFORE the doors open), you will NOT be able to get into the pit. They distribute wristbands to the first chunk of fans who get in, and they run out of wristbands right away. Everyone else is stuck way on the periphery, far from the stage, on the other side of a totally useless railing - even if you have a GA Floor ticket. You can go for the balcony instead, but that's a separate ticket and there are all seats up there.

The other downside is the parking. Good luck if you're coming on the same day as a game at the arena, which is right next door. You might get lucky at the LA Live structure but it'll cost you $30 on game nights. Keep in mind the train station isn't far away so maybe look into that.

Security was fine. Service at the bar was fast, but a double drink cost 27 dollars and even so I didn't even taste any alcohol.

Amazing sound system! I wish they didn't push it so loud (earplugs required) but unlike other venues, the speakers could handle the power without distortion. The main floor is VIP but not much further back is GA. A friend got me into VIP but I would have been happy with GA too.

The seats were awesome & so was the venue. But when people got up in in show they blocked my view. Other than that it was a great show!!! Got to see Kaleo!!!!

The venue itself is pretty cool. Nice bar set up and the venue itself has a good atmosphere. Saw Turnstile here and it was a real blast.

The show required covid vaccination and the staff was very quick when it came to checking vaccination cards, bags and ushering people into their designated areas. The seating aisles are quite small so you have to stand to let people pass.
Why don't venue's offer lids for drinks? Every person I saw with a drink in their hand spilled a good amount either on themselves or people who were sitting down. Main suggestion is offer lids. Other than that it was a fun time.

If You're lucky enough to have an artist you love play here grab tickets. It's an amazing intimate venue. And the acoustics were amazing too. Loud but clear amazing sound quality.

Worth the money! You can see the artists up close and they sell food and beverage at the bar.
Ps. Better come early cs they hand out the band that let's you stand up close to the stage and it's first come first served.
