Part of the corporate regeneration of Downtown, this slick, 7,100-capacity hall opened in late 2007 as the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live (and later the Microsoft Theater). The sound system is fantastic and the seating is plush; offerings range from old-school rock (the Eagles, Neil Young, Rush) and R&B (Kanye West, Mary J. Blige) to comedy and kids' shows. The drinks are pricey and parking can be tough if there's an event at the Crypto.com Arena next door: it's quicker to park farther away and walk, or to take public transport.
