The location is an amazing building downtown. Arrive early to walk around the place, even to visit the two museums walking distance. The hall is just beautiful on the inside, full of wood finishings. The Philharmonic orchestra is great, Dudamel, the Venezuelan director is high...More

Highly recommend the balcony seats behind the orchestra. You get to watch Dudamel at work and see things from the perspective of the orchestra. Make sure to attend one of the talks before the concert too.

We've subscribed to the LA Phil for years. Our own Dudamel is a fabulous conductor of our superb orchestra, but we always enjoy visiting conductors. The programs are varied and soloists outstanding. For anyone who loves music, a concert at Disney Hall should be a...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
