Even without going inside, one cannot help being in awe of this building, a striking example of modern architecture that "works". I lived downtown Los Angeles for many years, and this was a regular stop during my walks, I must have taken dozens and dozens of pictures, as the light or the perspective changes, the building takes different looks.

The acoustics in this venue are outstanding. Any seat gets excellent acoustics. The program is very varied and you should find something suitable if you survey the program before you visit. But book your seat promptly. Just seating in the auditorium is inspiring. Make sure you look around. There are great dinner choices nearby.

Whether you are a classical music fan or not, you have to see this building, preferably both inside and out. Buy a cheap ticket if you are not sure you want to go....There is not a bad seat in the house.

The outside is an amazing architectural wonder. Did you know originally this building was polished, but they had to change the finish to matte because the brightness from the sun actually relfected way too much heat to nearby apartment dwellers, therefore, turning on their air-conditioning units too often? If you're visiting LA and don't get to attend a concert, you'd... More

This gorgeous building conveniently located next to The Broad museum. If you have time, go inside for either self-guided tour or a complimentary tour with a guide. I decided to be with a guide, as well as another visitor. It was maybe too much informative, so took more than an hour and it shouldn’t be, to my opinion.

If you're in downtown la/bunker hill, you might as well just go for a walk to see this place. It's architecture. It's art.

Attended concert by visiting St Louis Symphony of a rare work from Olivier Messiaen. That work in that space with that architecture & that acoustic, made this a once-in-a-lifetime experience. What a hall! (And the Philharmonic Shop is very full of cool stuff.)

The gorgeous exterior of this venue gets a lot of attention, but the acoustics inside the hall are really well designed for the range of performances that are hosted here, and there doesn't seem to be a bad sightline anywhere.

I knew I wanted to see it but I had no idea that I would like it that much. There is free audio tour available that gives you a lot of information about the building and its numerous functions and I really recommend doing it! The interior and garden of the building are are as impressive as the outside. The... 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.
