GREAT ARCHITECTURE, A MUST SEE IN L.A.

Really a masterpiece in the middle of L.A., great architecture, and really worth to visit, even if you just pass by and take a quick pic from outside!!

I love this place. There is not a bad seat in the place in terms of sightlines and the sound of any performance is unbeatable.

We took a free guided tour of Walt Disney Hall and the other three arts buildings. The docent was very well informed and gave us a terrific overview of the architecture and art of the buildings. It was well worth spending 1 1/2 hours touring the buildings. The free tours start at 10:15.

I was there early in the morning and I only walked around the outside of the building and took photos, as the building was closed. I was still very happy as I love this design and admire the works of Gehry. I have driven past once before when visiting Los Angeles and was desperate to have an up close look.

We saw Herbie Hancock and Chuck Corea and our first visit demonstrated the great acoustics with only two dualing pianos. There are no bad seats in the house. Would definitely return to experience different musial genres.

If you're doing the downtown thing - Music Center, New Cathedral, MOCA then lingering on the sidewalk to take in the beautiful architecture of the Disney Center is a must. It is truly a work of art. I've been to two events inside - one a concert and the other a reception. Both were nice but I was a bit... More

I love the Walt Disney Concert Hall, but yesterday it was mind blowing. They had the Water Passion concert with the Master Choral and before the show the caterer Patina had set up a Water Bar including a water sommelier. It was amazing to taste different waters from around the globe to see the difference in taste. Really a special... More

If you go for a performance, acoustically there is no bad seat. The building, inside and out is worth a special trip if nothing is playing inside. Even the cafeteria is better than average, and frequently crowded. You can walk all around the building using a series of steps to get to the outside amphitheater, gardens, and city views. But...

Iconic building. Recognizable everywhere. Amazing acoustics. Not sure if the building is cooler at night with lighting or during the day reflecting heat and sunlight. I've been to the phil here. I came to see the incomparable Arlo Guthrie. Go to dinner nearby at the GCM and then hangout before the show. Of course, next door are the Chandler Ahmanson... More

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.
