I live in near San Diego and I made it a point to visit the Walt Disney Concert Hall after moving here from Phoenix. During a recent trip to Los Angeles, I was able to fit it in to a Saturday morning. What a piece of art this building indeed is! I explored all sides and even spent a little... More

My husband and I spent an evening at the Wat Disney Concert Hall listening to the LA Philharmonic Orchestra during the Reykjavik (Iceland) Festival. What a fabulous place for music! The acoustics are extraordinary and the building (exterior and interior) are worth a visit of itself. Kudos to the LA Philharmonic for thinking 'outside of the box' and bringing new... More

Based on my personal experience, if you are planning to purchase ticket for a LA Phil concert, go to the LA Philharmonic website! Don't just search for 'Walt Disney Concert Hall tickets'! This is exactly what I did. I was lead to the Ticket Center website which appears no different than a normal ticket page and purchased two LA Phil... More

The Disney Concert Hall is a must-experience site in DTLA. The acoustics are wonderful, and the entire building inside and out is aesthetically pleasing. There really isn't a bad seat in the house. Combine a concert here with one of my favorite DTLA restaurants, Baadmash, a wonderful contemporary Indian place. You can walk there easily from The Disney Concert Hall.

Frank Gehry's use of steel is well known, and Chicago and Bilboa claim similar structures to this one. But what makes Disney Hall unique is the variety of Japanese gardens that sprung all around the concert hall, accessible from the hallways. It is the most amazing feeling to go to a concert there, and walk out at intermission to the... More

This is one of the few venues that you need to walk around, inside and out, to get the full effect. There are doors outside the second floor, and you can get a good view of the city looking outward, and a great view of the building's architecture, looking inward. you don't have to be a fan of architecture (perhaps...

Self guided tour is a great way to navigate the building and learn about the centre, & its free.The outdoor garden is a particular attraction, a picnic lunch here is perfection, Its disappointing you cannot get into the Auditorium.

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.
