If you drive an electric car, make sure you have a full charge and a back-up plan, because the Music Center only has 6 charging spots, and the DWP's quick-charging unit (across the street) is only available between 9 AM and 5 PM M-F, and the standard charging units are catch-as-catch-can, tend to be hogged by DWP employees, are tied to the parking fee and limited to 4 hours. If Metro and Grey Line are accessible to you, consider.
Kendall’s Brassiere right there at the theater was wonderful!
Park underneath the theatre in the lot provided. It is the simplest. It is $9.00 and well worth it.
There are so many things the Ahmanson, Taper and Dorothy Chandler offer, everyone should find something to enrich their mind and have a good time in the process. Cheers
With all the outdoor table seating, you certainly can pack a picnic. You just have to take the leftover food and utensils back to your car. With the Music Center renovation done, there are a couple eating establishments as well as a small wine tasting bar and coffee establishment. I think I also saw a burger joint advertised on a standing sign.
parking at the Music Center for this performance and I think all performances was a flat $9.00 for the evening. It's all underground with attendents
The weather was typical Sunday SoCal evening. I wore long sleeve casual shirt, jeans and trainers.
The weather was comfortably warm. I wore Nice casual.
eat inside. The chips and cheese outside are drab
We like to hit The Blue Cow before shows at the Music Center. Great food and a cool downtown vibe for the post-work, pre-theater crowd.
We parked our car in Pasadena, had dinner and then Ubered to the play! So easy, dropped off right in front of the Ahmanson and we Ubered home afterwards. No waiting past 3 minutes to be picked up! Will do that again in the future!
Why are people wearing shorts and t-shirts? Also, no, you aren’t being cute when you climb over seats. You are disrespecting the theatre.
The Play That Goes Wrong
The weather was Beautiful . I wore A dressy, long cotton shirt.
The Play That Goes Wrong
The dining at the center is scarce, but there is one place you can purchase food from. I also say people bring a picnic and just use the tables provided to eat. You can also dine at some of the downtown restaurants before attending the show
we drove from Long Beach and parked in the Music Center parking garage. The flat rate was $9.00
The weather was cool after a somewhat warm day. I wore long sleeve shirt, jeans, trainers..
The weather was a bit chilly.. I wore a nice jacket and some dark colored jeans. Nothing too fancy or too casual..
I recommend leaving to go to the theatre for at least an hour before the show. LA traffic is rough, and if you don't wanna struggle a bit with parking, I recommend taking an Uber/Lyft.
