I would say it's a very special place if you admire music, architecture or just want to find something different in LA! I also believe it's one of the most photographed spots of DTLA (best time would be a sunset if you want to snap a great shot). Place has same intriguing character inside as it's looks from outside.

Cool to see, and the shop is great for music fans, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. If there's a concert, then it would be a cool place to be. They also offer tours, but I didn't get the chance to take one.

This was one of the activities I wanted to do and I loved it! The design is very futuristic but the curves and shape makes it feel like a masterpiece. If in LA I would definitely recommend this.

All the other reviewers have covered many facets of this incredibly designed concert hall, from the architectural wonder of Gehry's creative talent to the impossibly perfect acoustics. This place is an opportunity to have your senses dazzled, including the exquisite interior design incorporating three different types of wood as well as the stunning organ. The attention to detail is beyond... More

Beautiful Frank Gehry building. Free tours are offered weekdays only earn there is not a concert. Check the weekday schedule so you won't be disappointed. If it's sunny out, the metal sides heat up the surrounding areas at least 10-15 degrees.

The concert hall is such an architectural masterpiece. Beautiful design. Modern, clean, wonderful staff. We had seats on the side upper rows and were able to look down on the orchestra which afforded us not only a great vision of the musicians playing, but also the sound was amazing. Gustavo Dudamel is a true treasure! We were thrilled to be... More

This building, inside and out, is a phenomenon! The Disney Company deserves wild applause for what they created in this space. If I lived nearby I'd have to just drag out a chair and sit and stare at it. The sun light changes the exterior. Inside, the orange walls glow and the skylights change color with the help of hidden... More

The Yoyo Ma concert was music to our ears as the acoustics were just perfect. It was delight getting in and out of the venue. A great place for a concert

I don't claim to enjoy the classical music scene, yet when Gustavo Dudamet conductors the LA Philharmonic, you should listen. Under his energetic leadership the Orchestra reaches new heights. You will Not be disappointed in the musical program. The Walt Disney Concert Hall is without a doubt, world class. The acoustics were superb. Fans of Classical Music do not miss... More

Great place to see music. The design (by Frank Geary) is amazing and the sound perfect. Worth a tour if you can't see a concert.

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.
