Parking at the Geffen will mean a walk about five minutes away from the theater.

There is a parking lot next to the theater, but the signage is not clear, and it is easy to miss if you go too far.

If you park in the Palazzo parking structure, be sure to pick up a validation pass from the box office staff or concierge as you enter the Geffen Theater. I forgot to do this & it wd have cost us $20 since we arrived before 6:00 pm. The parking attendant was kind enough to give us the $4 rate as the Geffen box office was already closed after the show. He said Geffen patrons get the $4 rate even if they park all day as long as they have the validation pass, so don't forget!!!

I recommend the Palomino in Westwood Village for dinner. Great food and possibly the best service in town. And my husband and I are picky!

Be careful in Westwood,as some of the meters go until midnight on weekends. The lots are pretty reasonable after 6 p.m.

I highly recommend Palomino. It's about 2-3 blocks from the theater and the food and service are excellent.

Park in the parking lot west of the Geffen Playhouse for $7 parking. It's close and it's a fair price.

We got there early, about 6:15 and there was parking at a meter across the street from the Geffen.

The weather was beautiful. I wore a suit. I think getting a bit dressed up for the theater makes a more festive and fun evening..

Our favorite restaurant in Westwood Village is Native Foods on Galey Ave. It is a little bit of a walk but very pleasant in the early evening. The menu is vegan. Don't let that scare you. We have taken many friends to Native Foods and not one has missed the meat.
