Great place to watch a game

The Clips were playing and tix were available so I jump in to see them. Nice area but the LA Live nearby makes this a great destination for the better part of a day.

We visited Staples Centre recently to watch a National Hockey League involving the LA Kings recently and the entire experience was fantastic. The stadium is well laid out and easy to access. The bars and fast food shops ran well with efficient staff and the seats in the stadium enabled easy viewing of the arena from any point. A wonderful... More

My family and I came here to watch the NBA game. It was everything we ever dreamed of. Being from Australia and are die hard Laker fans we made the most of this place. And were even happier when our team won.

Visiting from U.K. with basketball fans we watched a couple of games and thought the events, venue and whole experience was brilliant, makes our football games seem very boring indeed!!

Big venue, so make sure you understand how big it is, but we enjoyed the basketball game and enjoyed the arena of activities inside the facility. Great food and drinks.

I been coming here for years and seen sporting events and concerts.The seating is good but could use more leg room. The luxury boxes are great! Clean bathroom, friendly staff. The food could be better no matter where you sit. Plenty of parking lots.

If you want to watch NBA in LA, then I can recommend getting tickets for a Clippers game rather than the Lakers as tickets are cheaper and more readily available. We managed to get 6 tickets for around $200 including booking fee, and while we were quite high, could still clearly see all the plays and players. Overall the whole... 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.
