3,205 Ahmanson Theatre Tips
After 40 years, the theater allows drinks in the auditorium and people sneak in snacs either from outside or from the concessions. This is an exteremely base idea as cracking noises from food unwrapping are constant and annoying. If someone does this, tell them to stop or shut up! And phones off!
The weather was cold for California. I wore Matinees, everyone was dressed nicely--nothing too casual or sloppy..
I wore flats. There's always so much walking to the Music Center venues from just parking structure alone. I highly recommend wearing either flats or kitty heels..
Ate at the outdoor restaurant between the Ahmanson and the Music Center. Would recommend the portabella mushroom burger highly...it was delicious! Didn't even miss the meat! Definitely try it!
The Sound of Music
The weather was warm. I wore a dress. Please, people, even if it's been a hot day, shorts and a t-shirt are not appropriate. .
The Sound of Music
There are several places to eat at the Music Center. The Spotlight Café is a carry out with sandwiches, soup and salads. There are also two sit-down restaurants with good food.
If you park in the Music Center parking it is $9 for the whole night and it leads you right up to the theater. Lot's of room and easy access from the street.
The new Grand Park has Music Center security guards patrolling all the levels of the park. You can park anywhere around the park and walk up to the Music Center in safety. It was a nice thing to do on a pleasant evening.
Allow extra time to pick-up will call tickets as the lines at the Ahmanson Theater are long and slow.
The weather was chilly. So do bring a sweater. . I wore a blazer with a long sleeve shirt and jeans. .
Botega Louies on 7th and Grand. Varied menu. Very good food. Bar area tables too small for plate sizes served. Attentive waiter Nate.
Music Center Parking is reasonable and very convenient.
Area restaurants and plentiful and of high quality. The restaurant at the venue, while not outstanding, is very convenient and will enhance the overall experience.
The weather was mild.. I wore a sweater..
I ate at the Taqueria right outside of the theater.
On a tight budget? Do as I did and visit the Tacos Arizas taco truck on your way there or home. It's about 2 miles west of the Ahmanson on Logan, just north of Sunset in Echo Park. Delicious carnitas, pastor and asada. Ask for radishes and carrots if you like them as they no longer have them out for customers to grab their own, but they'll give them to you if you ask.
