Great Atmosphere

Great atmosphere, sound is not distorted, or muffled in anyway. I've seen a couple shows here, and it's one of the nicer, newer facilities.

This is a good place to see a concert with excellent sound, but I can't quite get used to the feeling that it is a large movie theater, complete with popcorn as a snack.

I am sure there are people who love it, I didn't find anything special about it. Took our kid for an Elmo show, and wasn't really impressed.

You can go for a drink and or dinner before or after the event. The arena is big and beautiful and you can pretty much see the show from every seat. The staff are friendly and helpful. I Highly recommend if you are going there for an event, make a day or whole night out of it, the place is... More

We had the chance to take a private tour of this iconic building and we loved it. We learned so much about the history and the making of it as well as what happens behind the scenes when the big shows come in town. Great few hours spent there wondering around a very famous stage!

We have seen the Nokia theater in passing a few times and it is a great place to hangout. There are a lot of restaurants in the area and is great when they have events going on.

We visited the theatre to see the DWTS tour show and were quite impressed. Great layout, good sound/lighting and there didn't seem to be a bad seat in the house.

Nokia theatre and then going through Red Carpet to Stamples center is a star adventure! Grammy season is a whole week of parties, stars and awards! But you have to be prepared because it is also tiring and ones need extra care because they clean those carpets with very heavy chemicals and allergic people has to go with mask. It... More

My husband and I just visited the Nokia theater for the first time and saw the Dancing With The Stars Live tour. We did NOT have a good time. First of all, when we bought our tickets, the row we bought somehow didn't look that far away. Once you get there and sit in that seat though the stage looks... More

What a great theater. Clean, not a bad seat in the house, attentive and VERY friendly (and helpful) staff. Terrific venue for a play or concert.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood 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.
