Pantages only takes cash at the bar so be prepared. You only have the time before the event to drink what you order as you're not allowed to take the drink in the theater with you, however, you can pay ahead and order a drink to be ready for you at intermission, which saves having to stand in line again. Plenty of restaurants on the same block or 1 block down from Pantages but you need to arrive at least 2 hours prior to your performance and best case scenario, have a reservation, so you're not rushing thru your meal.

Musso Frank Grill is about 4 blocks away and is a Hollywood iconic restaurant. Excellent food and prices are not out of reach, especially if you split a pasta dish.

Had a wonderful dinner at Delphine in the W Hotel directly across the street from the Pantages.

That area has lots of walkable restaurants. We walked a couple blocks down and ate at The Melt but there is also Tender Greens and many fancy places and sports bars close by. You can buy some snack type foods and most drinks at the venue.

We went on thursday night and got there two hours early so we could eat and pick up tickets first. We picked up tix right at 6:15 and there was no line. The Pantages is right accross the street from the Red Line subway stop for Hollywood / Vine so if you can get to the red line, that's your best bet. There's also a lot ($10 I think) but we found a meter that was 2hr parking 'till 8pm so we parked just after 6 and paid $4 for that (after 8pm it's free to park there).

You have to find parking around in lots. Found a lot for 10 bucks on the street E of Vine. There is another lot closer for 20 bucks so avoid it if you can

We ate at 33 taps. Great food, great service, food was reasonable. I f you get there before 6 you can take advantage of happy hour for drinks and appetizers. Very convenient since its just a couple doors down from the pantages. Had plenty of time to relax, eat and socialize with friends before the show.

You won't go hungry. Food at the theater and many places available in the area. They let you take food and drink into the theater. Hooray!!!
