    Nice small venue, bar behind the entrance is usually less crowded. Parking structure nearby is probably your best bet, if you're driving.

    The El-Rey Is Iconic. A Great Place To Listen To Local & Indie Music. Right In The Middle Of Los Angeles. Safe Area....Great Place To Relax!

    One of the best small concert venues in Los Angeles. Come to see some great acts before they make it big

    This is one of my favorite venues in LA. Not too small, but not big at all. Chairs available if you get there early. Stand near the sound booth.

    The sound here is outrageous. The chandeliers add a touch of elegance as well to this perfectly sized venue

    Smallish venue. If you don't want to get super close to the stage, post up behind the barrier around the room for a pretty unobstructed view of the stage.

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

    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

    Saw the final Jack's Mannequin concert here! Go here for a concert, and then walk 10 minutes west toward the Urban Light art sculpture for some annoying hipster selfies.

    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!

    An upstairs VIP balcony looks down over the grand ballroom. The all-ages venue usually features standing-room admission. The ballroom has a full bar, and another full bar in the fancy art deco lobby. Read more

    A classic LA venue. Leave your gum behind, be nice to the security guards, and don't forget to look up at the ceiling in between bands. Almost every view's a good one here.

    The art deco theatre is a stunner, from its nostalgic neon signage to the grand ballroom. It has a knack for booking artists on the cusp of stardom, giving fans an intimate show-going experience. 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.)

    One of the best live venues in LA. If you can get a spot in front or behind the soundboard, it'll sound even better.

    First, this venue is beautiful. Get there early enough and street parking is easy to find. There's also a pay lot that isn't very expensive. It isn't difficult to find a great view here

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

    El Rey is one of LA’s best mid-size venues. Jollett of the Airborne Toxic Event says he’s never seen a bad show here. More importantly, “it’s one of the few places in LA that actually has class.”

    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
