    You can buy Loosies in the Bathroom. Try buying your ticket at the Venue so as to avoid very high service fees.

    They are not too aware of how 4sq works and did not honor my mayoral checkin for a simple bottle of water. Thankfully, there was a bartender who gave me one, but no one even knew what 4q was! Read more

    Avoid paying those dreaded Ticketmaster fees! If it's not an instant sell-out show, buy your tickets at Origami Vinyl ($2 per ticket fee, cash only) or direct from the El Rey website ($5/ticket.)

    It has had its fair share of top-tier and soon-to-be-huge artists at its stage, from Bob Dylan and the Pixies to Lana Del Rey. The ornate decorations and VIP lounge add a touch of class to its shows. Read more

    Worst fucking venue! Everyone who works there is clueless, disrespectful, and unorganized. I was appalled at the way I was treated. I did not get the VIP experience I paid for. Never going back!

    I love the vibe of this theatre! This has to be my favorite music venue in LA — the sound is always clear and I never have a problem getting close to the stage to checkout the band that is performing.

    like putting lipstick on a pig. it still looks like a tacky banquet hall! that step around the dance floor is an absolute hazard. not bad for sit-down comedy, though.

    There are plenty of parking options around the venue, including street parking if you’re lucky. Or, valet your car right in front for just $10.

    Don't park in a side street that goes North/South--they all require a special parking pass. Tickets are over $50.
