I've been to LA Live twice already and I've yet to find this an exciting destination. Frankly, it's rather boring with limited choices in terms of dining venues. It's also quite far walking from the metro stations downtown. There are some flashy neon lights but this is far from the Times Square in NYC which they were trying to imitate.... More

Lots of options for food and things to do before catching a game at the staples center. We always go here to grab a burger (way cheaper than the stadium) and also to stop by Stubhub to print our tickets out (for free). Very busy and loud! Not a good place for kids but great for a drink or two.... More

I took my 13 yr old son on a trip to LA. We were able to get free tickets to a taping of Sportsnation on ESPN, which is what brought us to LA Live. We had a couple hours to walk around and see all the records in the sidewalk from the Grammy Awards. There are a lot of great... More

Loud, noisy, high energy. Restaurants galore. Staples Center. While we were in L.A. on 3 consecutive nights, the L.A. Kings, Lakers, and Clippers played at the Staples Center. A bit artificial since it was created for entertainment but after all, this is the capital of glitz. The Grammy museum is here as well as a Regal Cinema 14 which has... More

I went to LA Live for the purpose of grabbing lunch. There were many options from sushi to burgers. The restaurants were all reasonable LA prices and of great regard. There are places like Katsuya and Wolfgang Puck's. There are also movies, shows, and attractions here. During my visit, it was Halloween, so there was actually a carnival set up... More

Lots to see, do, and eat but not a whole lot more unless your attending an event. It feels like a fairly safe place to walk around which is unlikely for LA so that's the upside.

Lots & lots of restaurants. A really awesome pre-game area. A lot of people but it feels clean, safe & worth a visit - especially before any game at Staples. Parking at LA Live is a bit pricey.

Many eateries and entertainment venues. Sports, concerts, and shows are there. The Los Angeles Film Festival also uses the numerous venues during its yearly gathering.

I love going to LA Live - lots of great restaurants and if you are lucky enough to be there during the Grammy's - Great place to people watch.

Boyfriend and I celebrated Valentine's Day here. I fell in love with the JW Marriott, the Grammy museum was a blast, saw the largest Zumba crowd ever while eating at ESPN Zone, THEN walked over to see the Lakers play. I could live here.
