Best known as home turf for the Lakers basketball team (as well as the Clippers basketball team, and the Kings hockey team), Downtown's sports shrine also hosts big musical acts such as Kanye West and U2. Though it's plush and modern, the sound quality in the 20,000-capacity arena is surprisingly variable. At the concession stand, don't miss the nachos camachos, an LA favorite.
