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.

It was loud, crowded, lots of lights and people but nothing to really get excited about. It seemed as most things in LA it was overated and overpriced if you wanted to eat in the area. They had a team member making pictures with fans but the line was extremely long and out of control. It definitely was something we... More

If you are there during award show season, or sports season you will see LA LIVE filled with people all night long. There is a number of restaurants and gift shops. I would recommend trying some of the food here instead of inside of the pricey Staples Center. I wouldn't recommend necessary driving here for LA LIVE itself but rather... More

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

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.
