“Great Venue for NBA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Saw the Clippers play there and what a night. My first ever live NBA game and was blown away by the atmosphere. They really know how to put on a show.

“an arena”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

it's an arena. Big deal. If you get a seat in a luxury box it doesn't include anything else. We got there and they pointed us to concession stands downstairs where we could stand in line for food and drink. No service unless it's arranged days ahead of time. terrible.

“Impressive facility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Was there for a coupla USC b-ball games during the 2007 Pac-10 Tournament. Definitely a step up from the dank, drab ol' L.A. Sports Arena, and then some!

“LA Clippers Game”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

We went to see a Clippers game last week and had a blast!! A must do if you are going to LA. Beware, food in the arena is extremely expensive as well as parking ($20-$25). Additionally the restaurants in the surrounding area are all very high end..if trying to stay on a budget plan on eating beforehand. I found tickets to the game on eBay (paid $20 total) and was in section 304..and they were great seats! There is not a bad seat in the house.

“Great for a game, bad for eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Food and drink are overpriced. Food, in particular, is very average, even for an arena. My best suggestion for food is to go a little early and eat at one of the restaurants at L.A. Live.
