Dress was typical for California. A mix of dressy and casual. Parking right behind the theater was 20.00 but if you are willing to walk 11/2 blocks there was plenty of parking on Yucca for $9.00
Try Tendet Greens on Sunset.
I went to a matinee so we had lunch at the W hotel across the street. They will validate for parking taking $10. off so you only pay $11. Excellent food
Best parking is about a block south, covered and security for $15
Rodgers & Hammerstein's The King and I
bring cash for the parking structure nearest to the Pantages
Leave early because of traffic and construction sites.
Arrive extra early for best parking options nearby, otherwise fork over $20 at the last minute at the lot next to the theatre.
I wore I hear it can get very hot in the mezzanine, whereas I found it chilly in the orchestra..
We got there just in time to enjoy a glass of wine and a wonderful delicious hamburger at Hollywood Burgers, across the street from the Pantages Theater. Must try the VIP BURGER. YUMMY!
Don't take the redline if you're in a hurry to get home. Unlike the tube in London or Metro in Paris, it's timetable is in flux and you could be left waiting and waiting and waiting for a train with little to no communication that can be understood. Our wait went from (in minutes) 2, 15, 9, 12, 9, 10. We then left and called uber.
Parked at Eastown for about $10, prepaid on-line.
Ate at Hollywood Burger across the street-well made quality food.
Do t let the line for the ladies room fool you during intermission it goes fast! They've got it handled!
red line metro is right across the street
use the metro red line, the Hollywood Vine station is ACROSS THE STREET!!!
Dined across the street from theater. They have a patio & bar area for dining. Quite expensive for apertizer type shared plates & wine. But good and convenient. Can't remember the name.
We drove from West side. Not a pkeasant drive. There is a small parking lot one block south for $10 which is half the price of the other lots in the area. We will consider using the Metro for future visits to Pantages.
The weather was Sunny. I wore Pants and lightweight shirt..
Parking caddy corner from the theater is blocked and under construction. Go Metro with its station directly from the Pantages instead.
Blue Palm Brewery a must
