A wonderful hall. We like to sit on the side, above the orchestra, rather than down on the floor -- especially a little behind the orchestra. You can see the conductor's face. You are perched right above the musicians, so you can see them as they work.... Take the tour during the day; you will get to go to the... More

The Walt Disney Concert Hall is magnificent in design with the undulating waves of the structure. The interior is also beautiful with grand rooms and exquisite wood in its design. The gift shop is a "must visit" as it offers many unique items that are difficult to resist. There are many great restaurants nearby so you can eat prior to... More

This is a "must see" in downtown Los Angeles. During the day, free audio self-guided tours enable you to learn the details of how the building was designed and decorated. The terrace garden with the Delft tile sculpture is lovely and quite unique. The excellent acoustics in the concert hall, enhance all the musical performances.

A huge venue that feels intimate, personal and is simply thrilling to visit. Once you get past the parking situation - or if you've been here once it's easy peasy 'cause you already know where it is - you're in for a gorgeous night. The structure and design of the auditorium is just fabulous. It's truly the kind of place... More

I have been to the concert hall several times and each time I am struck by the beauty of the facility. The curve of the setting makes for a seats having great views and a feeling of a much smaller theater. Acoustics are great.

We attended the opening night of the LA Phil. Amazing program, well performed, great interdisciplinary work, etc. But I had a panic attack over the height of my seats 10 minutes before the curtain and the usher team resat me without drama and with complete sympathy. I <3 Disney Hall and would go back in a heartbeat.

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.
