Time Out says

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.

Beautiful Art Deco theatre on the edge of Koreatown near Mid-City. They have a unique line up of shows and events that range from concerts to screenings to panels to dance classes. Keep an eye on their schedule to try something new. Food and drinks can be very pricey and there is a limited selection so if you are picky or budget mindful, eat before you visit. Parking is hard to find, I have very rarely found free parking nearby, you can negotiate with the lots though so act a little hesitant when they tell you the price and you might just get a deal!


The upside to The Wiltern: Art Deco, old theater-vibes, spacious, accessible bars, minimal line wait-age (copyright pending), decent Koreatown pregaming nearby, and front row waitresses serving Vodka-soaked gummies! I experienced this last perk while standing up front for Third Eye Blind.

Downside: Parking! I'd recommend taking the train or an Uber (which you may do anyway).

Overall, this is one of my favorite venues in LA. There will always be great, indie, alternative, and big acts playing at The Wiltern. You'll get there.


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.


The Wiltern is a great music venue located in the Mid-City area. I love that they offer a variety of different styles of music and the sound system is really good! Everytime I have been at The Wiltern it's never been too crowded which is also a plus.


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.
