The LA Live Complex is right at the Staples Center with numerous restaurants/bars ready to accommodate the pre-game crowds, and conference crowds at the Marriott/Ritz Hotels. It's a Hot Spot fueled by the excitement of the Staples Center and the activities surrounding it. Even if you don't go to a game, it's a great place to hang-out and have drinks/apps/dinner.... More

This place has something for everyone. I would recommend a visit. If you get tired of shopping and just running around Los Angeles, stop here and take in a movie or dinner. Lot's of options.

Is it just me, or is downtown (and specifically LA Live) a bit off? I’d spent 20 years in LA before moving away about 5 years ago. The whole LA Live thing grew after that. I perfectly fine, but everything closes a bit early for a major metropolitan center. There is NO shopping of any kind in the area. I... More

Safe. good place pre or post concert, for drinks, night life, or eats. Subway is a 5 minute walk. Nokia theatre and Staples center are modern venues. During the day, the Grammy museum has a lot to see. This is what has revitalized the downtown area folks!!!!!!!!!!!!

Went here in advance of a lakers game and was less than thrilled. Okay food, but other than that nothing special, if you are going to the staples center you are okay but it is not a destination.

This is a nice neighborhood with lots of stores and restaurants. If you are looking to catch a movie, have dinner, or a date, LA Live is a great place to do so. We walked from DT LA to here in just a few short blocks and enjoyed what the neighborhood has to offer. We were also in town when... More

It was nice to see this type of facility in a downtown area. Very well laid out with plenty of restaurants and entertainment options available, all within walking distance of each other.

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.
