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.

LA Live is great place to hang out. At night time is when it really comes alive with all the LCD screens and lights. The visual effects are excellent. They have about 20 restaurants there to eat from high end dining to burgers. Even though they have 20 restaurants, it does seem limited on variety of food. Most dining places... More

Came here a couple times for a concert at LA Live and to see a 4D showing of Ant Man at the Regal Theater here. It's good place for entertainment almost like an outdoor mall. It requires a bit of walking to get from end to end though.

Stayed 3 nights in JW Marriott for a conference. Spent some time walking the environs. Except for the hotel's front entrance hedge, not a green space in sight - and little left of the pathetic, drought-stricken twigs planted along the streets. The plaza was hoatching with kids in funky dress attending the Shania Twain and Taylor Swift concerts in the... More

I really like the vibe here @ LA LIVE!! If you like the big city lights, tons of places to eat, places to drink, and truly enjoy hanging out with your buddies, this is the place to do it in downtown LA!! It's nice to see so many people having fun just being out. Best of all, if you're here... More

A fantastic Place for enterteinment. Wether you want to go to the cinemas, consert or a nice restaurant this place got it all. But if your use to 24/7 service you will be disappointed. They start to close down around 23.

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.
