  • Whether it's a Lakers game, a music concert, or the US Figure skating finals - this is a great venue, with lots of restaurants & downtown LA at it's doorstep.  more »
  • We went there to watch a Lakers game in the NBA. In comparison with other concert halls and show that we know, here no waiting, fluidity to reach his seat, kindness of the staff to refer us, many points of restoration and beverage, points boutiques and big store Lakers. Not much room at the seat level, so not necessarily very comfortable for the big people, but the show is worth the effort. Good acoustics. Really awesome.

  • Great place. Nice amount of things to do near by. I love coming here to watch the clippers play. Everytime the security is fast and friendly. The staff will help you with any questions you have. Is typically really clean when you enter the building and leave. Great sound system. Good family environment
  • We went to a jazz vs clippers game here. At the beginning I was a bit afraid to wear a jazz jersey. All the fans, and workers there were totally cool with it though. Awesome food in the club, Pre game. Super friendly staff, awesome fans, we had a great time!
