Fun venue just blocks away from the heart of the historic core in downtown, this large theatre has great acoustics and multiple bars inside from which to grab a drink.  If you're looking for a pre-show bite or drink, there are ample options within a 5-10 minute walk, from Blossom to the Nickel Diner to Guisados--and that's not even mentioning the Regent's own Prufrock Pizza and Lovesong Bar (and you can totally drink at Lovesong before the show and ask them to put your drink into a plastic cup and bring it straight into the Regent!).  Pro-tip, don't waste time waiting in the massive line for the restroom on the first floor...there's a second floor and another large bathroom up there.

Perhaps the best larger venue in LA, The Regent books popular bands and energetic dance parties. The sloped floor helps with sightlines, but you'll want to leave the stiletto heels at home.

I came here recently for a Fidlar concert and was pretty impressed with it. While there was a long line early in the night, when we made our way in there was no line to be seen so we quickly got in. We were also able to get a seat upstairs so we had the best spot in the house not having to deal with the mosh pit crowd below. It was also nice they have a separate bar upstairs so we didn't have to deal with the massive crowd at the one below. Overall, enjoyed the experience!
