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.

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.

Thank TNoel44

Staying in Downtown

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.
