I came here for the first time to see the Anisong World Matsuri concert. The seats were comfortable and I didn't experience any issues with the staff that showed me the way to my seat. The concessions were pricey but you'd be hard pressed to find anything that isn't considered pricey in L.A live.

We were here to see Buckethead last week, our first time here, and will come back for sure. We were in the balcony area and was very surprised how nice the seats were! Beyond just comfy. Easy access to the bar area, perfect acoustics, a great view anywhere in the house. What more can one ask

The theater was nice and to be expected has a lot of seating so stage may seem small if you are looking for a good seat make sure you get up front. The staff was okay nothing special about this venue the menu for concessions was your normal average concession coffee was horrible.

I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. The inside of this venue is clean and new, with wood floors and plenty of balcony seats. The sound is great as well. There is also a full bar, even though the drinks are a little pricey. There is a lot of staff. Probably my only complaint is that... More

My friends and I came to this venue for the Bethel 2016 Heaven Come conference. It was in a great location in downtown LA, close to restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. The venue itself is very nice, with the highlight being the huge theater inside. I've never been in a more impressive theater. The view of the stage... More

For 3 days in May, some 7,000 people from all over the world gathered to celebrate the Love and faithfulness of their God at the Microsoft Theatre. From 9:30 am to 10 pm, worship, teaching, preaching and the general enjoyment of the Spirit of God filled the theatre and all those in it. The City of Angeles was annointed by... More

Cool place to see a show, right across from the staple center. Enjoyed it very much and would go back if I wanted to see someone there. An LA trick might be to valet at the Ritz? seemed like a lot of people were parking there. Like most venues, a cluster when you leave traffic wise.

Nice place. Good sight lines from about halfway back. Sound was excellent. Seats were comfortable. Concessions were about average for a venue like this.

Saw the Shen Yun Chinese Performing Arts at this venue and loved it! The place was packed. Security was tight. Come early if you want a snack or drinks because you can't take them into the theater. Lines are long at intermission. So, take restroom breaks during the show. But, they don't let you back in during acts. So, you... More

I was very disappointed in the sound at the Microsoft theater. The place is enclosed and the sound was just loud with every noise bouncing around. I would love to see Nashville live again at the Greek or Hollywood Bowl. You would think that Microsoft would have the best sound in the business, very disappointing.

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.
