This classy art deco gem packs 'em in for shows from the indie-rock likes of My Morning Jacket, the Hives and Beach House, as well as the odd comic act such as Ron White or Tenacious D. Concerts are seated or standing-room-only, depending on the act. The sight lines are a plus, but elbow room in the best spots can be at a premium.

LA feels a little bit lousy sometimes when it comes to the quantity of mid-sized music venues, but the Wiltern certainly doesn't skip on quality The dancefloor can feel a little bit cavernous, but the architecture in here is really something, and mostly well preserved. The sightlines on the floor are generally pretty good. Parking, though, is a pain and you'll probably find yourself brushing up against the start of the show and biting the bullet at an overpriced lot; good luck finding street parking in Koreatown.
Here's the deal with The Wiltern: I love going when the band I'm seeing is chill, mellow, and doesn't inspire any dancing. For these shows, I'll snag a seat where I can listen comfortably (although on my last visit, the stench of stale beer was pretty strong). But for shows where I like to dance, it's not the most ideal spot—I've been shoved against the railing and had cocktails spilled on me one too many times. It's a beautiful space, though—just look up and you're instantly in awe.
