Even if you can't get inside to see a show (which is highly recommended) it is worth visiting this one of a kind structure in downtown LA. The gardens outside have been given the status of a state park, and it's a great space to sit and relax in the middle of the city. Make sure not to miss walking... More

My daughter is studying architecture and wished to view the concert hall designed by Geary. Whilst there we were given some tickets for the Rogers and Hammerstein concert the was going on at the time. How wonderful! The conductor was hilarious!

A truly extraordinary building. Every aspect has been thought about by Gehry. There's even a garden nestling in the structure. And inside I've never seen a concert organ that shape! We went on a day time tour - couldn't attend a concert because of our schedule - but next time I go to LA I will plan ahead better and... More

I loved viewing the architecture of the building. but best of all are the concerts they have. Also pre concert lectures are always interesting. They have a lovely giftshop and a place to eat. It's a lovely concert hall and if visiting L.A. a must see along with other sites in downtown Los Angeles.

The Walt Disney Concert Hall is easy to get to from the freeway. Parking is easy, you can enjoy a nice meal at the bar and grill down the street and then walk one block to see a performance. The acoustics are fabulous! I have seen classical concerts as well as the Fab Four perform there. The unique architectural design... More

We went to a concert performed by the California Philharmonic at Disney Hall. It's hard to describe how fabulous this was. It seems that conductors are now taking on a new role. They no longer lead the orchestra in creating special pieces to entertain us, they also personally entertain the audience. Victor Veneer is no exception. You can tell that... More

Took the grandkids. The place was huge and visitors were invited to take a guided or self tour. It was very easy to close your eyes and imagine the hustle and bustle of a crowded catered charity affair or in the concert hall the beautiful music of a talented orchestra.

The Walt Disney concert Hall is a beautiful venue with comfortable sitting and easy access to all the floors by escalator. We had great seats and the acoustics in the hall are exceptional for my listening ears.

Beyond the shining exterior, the sound quality of the hall is worth experiencing. A way to sit in the concert hall without spending bank is through the Green Umbrella series. John Adams has been creative director for the past few years. You might even see him conducting. This is New Music. Composed by a mix of young artists and avant... More

Gehry is, of course, one of the greatest architects of our times. Just one look at this building and his genius is confirmed. But what many do not know is that this building offers so much more than just a beautiful exterior. Any visitor to Los Angeles should most definitely take in any show that is playing at the concert... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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 in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
