Great theater for a concert

The Microsoft Theater is the perfect size for a concert. It is small enough so that you don't feel you are too far away from the performers.

My husband surprised me with tickets to The 80's weekend concert. What a great concert venue. We had such a good time going back to our high school years. The venue was jumping. Staff were all nice and it was close to where were staying.

My wife and I attended the Marc Anthony concert in October. This the 3rd time we have seen a concert at this theater. It is large enough to attract top talent but small enough to feel intimate. I would recommend not getting seats in orchestra right or left as the views are obsructed.

Concert was amazing. The entire theatre is lined with seats in a coliseum like fashion which is fantastic for viewing areas from any seat you purchase. The acoustics were also fantastic. Best venue for a concert I've been to.

Was here for a conference and the whole place is an experience. From the courtyard to the theater itself. Concessions where great, comfy seats.

The Microsoft Theater is probably the most classic and elegant theater I have ever seen. I was in Los Angeles recently and attended a Babyface and New Edition concert on July30th. I am a master at picking seats very early and was in a row of 3 seats that felt very private.The seats were gorgeous, comfortable and spacious.It reminded me... More

I came here for the first time to see the Anisong World Matsuri concert. The seats were comfortable and I didn't experience any issues with the staff that showed me the way to my seat. The concessions were pricey but you'd be hard pressed to find anything that isn't considered pricey in L.A live.

We were here to see Buckethead last week, our first time here, and will come back for sure. We were in the balcony area and was very surprised how nice the seats were! Beyond just comfy. Easy access to the bar area, perfect acoustics, a great view anywhere in the house. What more can one ask

The theater was nice and to be expected has a lot of seating so stage may seem small if you are looking for a good seat make sure you get up front. The staff was okay nothing special about this venue the menu for concessions was your normal average concession coffee was horrible.

My friends and I came to this venue for the Bethel 2016 Heaven Come conference. It was in a great location in downtown LA, close to restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. The venue itself is very nice, with the highlight being the huge theater inside. I've never been in a more impressive theater. The view of the stage... More

Neighbourhood 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.
