Greek Theatre

This pleasant, open-air, 6,000-seat theatre stages big summer shows by acts both national and local. It's a bit like seeing a concert in the woods, and rivals the Hollywood Bowl in terms of LA's most magical outdoor music venue. The only downside: The "stacked" parking means getting out of the parking lot often takes longer than the show, and VIP "Quick Parking" is a pricey $50.

The Greek isn't my favorite venue in the city, but it definitely has some wonderful things about it that make it unique and fun to visit. The sound system won't blow you away and impress you as much as an indoor venue, but the outdoor experience certainly makes up for it. There is always something so amazing about seeing a band in the crisp air and under a starry sky. It's a great way to spend a night. Be aware that drinks can be very expensive and that parking can be tough and pricey as well. If you're looking for a spot to grab dinner before the show, try somewhere like Mess Hall, which is just at the bottom of the hill.


The Greek is my favorite music venue in Los Angeles. There are no bad seats, unlike other bigger stadiums, and being here always gives me warm and fuzzy feelings about living in Los Angeles. They've hosted some of the best bands in the world. They do close during the winter season due to the cold weather, but they always come back with an even stronger lineup the following year. Ubering to this venue is always preferable to paying the parking fee.

The Greek is such an LA venue, and I mean that in the best possible way. It merges nature with art, the vibe is electric, and the acts that come through here are all fantastic. I saw M83 here recently and while I hate to say it was epic...it was pretty epic.

If you’re looking at the seating chart, the southside is closer to the main entrance so if you get your choosing tickets that might be helpful. I’ve been up on the front row of the Terrace before too and that’s a good view, if you can’t get the pit.

They usually have a designated area for Uber/Lyft drop-offs, and while it’s not impossible to call an Uber/Lyft to pick you up, get ready to jump in your car.

I’ve experienced security separating guys and girls into different lines where it then becomes much like the bathroom lines – the girl’s one is super long and the guys just kind of cruise in there.

Beer is expensive. A tall can is $15.

The acoustics are actually not the best, a bit of the sound gets lost/muted.  Not as massive as the Hollywood Bowl, but pretty easy to navigate your way in and out.  Still a fun venue and great weather at nights in the summertime.

It may not get as much attention as LA's other classic outdoor music venue, but the Greek is a great place to see a summertime show. Ticket prices can get a little steep and parking pretty packed, but if one of your favorite performers is playing here, don't think twice about nabbing tickets.


The Greek is an awesome outdoor venue that is intimate yet not too small. I don't think I've ever had a bad seat at this venue either. They have good food options normally and a cute lawn area with picnic tables for you to hang out at during or after the concert. I had the chicken nachos and a margarita and it was pretty good food for a music venue. The parking isn't the best but if you can get some cool views of the city while you're dealing with it!
