Have watched Celtic Thunder on PBS for a few years, but nothing could have prepared us for the group actually performing live on stage - they were great! The opening drums set the stage and it only gets better after that. The instrumentals and backup performers all did their part and really help make the show what it is -... More

Was lucky to have a seat for the Annie Lennox PBS Recording in January. The theatre had been in blackout since Xmas, but was brought back to life beautifully for this extraordinary concert. Seats were comfortable, acoustics were good, not great. The theatre is however beautiful. Queues for drinks were too long at the interval, but quite honestly when aren't... More

The Orpheum is an amazing old theater from the early days of Los Angeles. You wouldn't expect how ornate and fancy it is inside by the look of it on the outside. We lived almost across the street from the Orpheum for a year and it was so great that we were able to see a couple shows there. There's... More

My first venture into LA was to this historic theater to watch my favorite band perform an evening with Dream Theater, and I was not disappointed at all. While I know not much of the history of this location I honestly spent the time of the opening doors to the beginning of the show exploring the details of the theater.... More

The theater is beautiful, you can’t get a bad seat, and the sound is excellent the only down side is they only take cash! So if you want anything to eat or drink bring cash because they don’t take credit or debit cards

Acoustics are fantastic and the decor will blow your mind. Wish all venues were this cool. Go early and have a drink at the Broadway Bar or Golden Gopher.

Step back in time when you enter the theater beautiful from top to bottom. If you get a chance to enjoy a show there check out the ornate ceiling and beautiful architecture.

The inside is very nice, clean and comfortable. Surrounding area wasn't too bad. There was plenty of affordable parking and very little panhandling.

We love the Orpheum! Just wish they had more concerts here. Sure its old, could use some sprucing up, and larger bars. But we have such a fun time here. And the architecture is amazing!

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.
