“What an amazing venue”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Saw Mary Chapin Carpenter there September 27th. First time there and what a treat. It's located in a vibrant area near the Staples Center and is very easy to get too (parking is not cheap though).
The inside of the theater has an awesome bar with seats between the bar and the stage. It's not real huge. It's an intimate setting and perfect for a concert. Upstairs is a very upscale looking lounge where you can grab some appetizers or have a pre or post show drink.
Frankly it is one of the most attractive venues I have ever been to.

“This is a concrete jungle with neon signs and nothing more.”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Once you have paid the ridiculous parking, all there is to see are the giant flat screens bombarding you with images. That's it. This is not a destination unless you are crazy enough to pay the overpriced tickets to see a performance here.

“Nice Venue”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Attended 2 concerts and 2 American Idol finales at the Nokia. Parking was no problem - a little pricey but I would park right at Nokia and avoid the open parking lots on the side streets. The venue was very clean, employees very polite and helpful [ for Los Angeles ]. After the events we walked around the immediate area and felt very safe / secure, never felt uncomfortable.

“2NE1 concert”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Although we had 5 row seats, I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Sound quality was excellent.
