LA Live has everything to enjoy before watching the LA Kings. My wife and I will always grab dinner at different places before the games. Tickets for the Kings sell out fast but you can always find good deals on Stubhub and they have a ticket office in LA Live. Enjoy!

Visited on Boxing Day and it was nice to see somewhere do Christmassy in LA. It had a great ice rink with a beautiful tree. Lots of places to eat and drink and a lot of atmosphere.

This place is interesting as Staples Center and a few other places are nearby. Its fun to just hangout, eat at some of the restaurants, look at the Times Square-esque monitors or just grab a drink and walk around. During this time of year, there is a skating rink so that is festive. Overall, a great to hangout before an... More

LA Live is a megalopolis within itself with the Microsoft Theater / Nokia, several hotels, high rise condominium, shops, cafes, restaurants and other venues galore. Just next door to the Staples Center & the LA Convention Center. We parked underneath, but there's lots of parking areas nearby. Huge LCD screens are like a mini Times Square. Lots happening here!

This is a great spot to hang out, especially if you are staying at one of the connected hotels or have just attended an event at the Staples Center. The multiple LED board provide a cool atmosphere at night and there are plenty of food and/or nightlife options. Also a great place to people watch.

Thank Brock M

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
