    Seriously Awesome Concert Venue! I love, love, love this venue! I was there for the first time this year to see Mumford & Sons. Such a small place that every seat in the house is great!

    The Greek Theatre, nestled in the heart of Los Feliz and surrounded by trees and mountains, is easily one of the most beloved outdoor venues in L.A. Read more

    Park in the neighborhood just south of Los Feliz Blvd. The walk up to the park is nice and you save yourself an insane amount of time and stress.

    I love amphitheaters, and this one nestled in Griffith Park is awesome. Beautiful hillside views, excellent acoustics and not a bad seat in the house. Check out events happening on summer nights

    Such a cool venue! Try and get there early, because the common area outside is very cool, grassy, and overall a great place to sit and hang out before. Truly is a concert under the stars.

    I love this venue, almost more than the Hollywood bowl! Smaller and more intimate with a beautiful landscape. The food is not bad, drinks are expensive though. Do the offsite parking ($10).

    Wow, what a venue! Great sound and perfect setting surrounded by hills and trees. Even the area outside the event space is cool for pre-show drinks and food! 👌🤘

    Best concert venue in all of LA! Not a bad seat in the house. Much more intimate than the Hollywood Bowl.

    Fabulous show! GreAt place! Amazing trees and sound and bar. I didn't get the memo that you can wear high heels and tiny dresses as you climb the stairs in November #coloradogirl

    I call it a "mini-Hollywood bowl" -- I sometimes prefer the Greek because it is less intimidating. I love this venue to catch some of my favorite artists/bands.

    My favorite outdoor venue; no real bad seat in the house. Pay for parking online beforehand to avoid stacked parking. Dress warm!

    The Greek’s size (fewer than 6,000 seats) is far from overwhelming, and with excellent natural acoustics amid the towering pine trees of Griffith Park, the venue is even a little romantic. Read more

    It has 6,000 seats, which leads to more intimate concerts with some big-name acts. Unfortunately, you can't bring your own food or drinks to the venue, but they sell goodies there, so you're covered. Read more

    Oh yes - certainly awesome that it is one of the favorite outdoor places in LA to rock to live music. Proud that it is part of our LA culture scene:)

    Great venue! Can get cold in the winter months so be sure to bring a blanket! Also, parking on event days is cash only so be prepared!

    Try to drive the streets that run parallel to sunset blvd to get here in time - it can get crazy. Not crazy abt the food choices at the concession stand - closest thing to healthy is veggie burger.

    My favorite venue in LA! And it just got better with $7 offsite shuttle parking. Buy parking online first before heading out to your show and thank me later!

    Ticket buying tip: opt for seats in the center (3-digit seat numbers). It's the best view in any section. I'd settle for a center seats in B over sitting far left or right in A any day.

    Stacked parking is the woooooooorst here. Carpool, but choose the person in your group with the SUV. You will probably find yourself parked in the woods.

    You can park in Los Feliz Village and walk to the Greek. It's less than a mile.

    The Greek Theater opened in 1930 and promptly burnt down. In 1931 after reopening it became home to numerous productions in the 30s including many by the Works Progress Administration Federal Theater.

    The intimate setting at Greek Theatre was always a favorite of Barbie's. We'd dress to impress, have a nice dinner and enjoy an outdoor show under the stars. Very romantic.

    If you have dinner in Los Feliz, you can walk to the theatre and avoid the parking situation. It's less than a mile and it's a pretty walk.

    It is better to pay for parking on there website, it is a little more expensive but it is easier and you are not being parked in a lot that only has stack parking
