    The Fonda Theatre is a great place to see a show. This venue recently was selected by the Rolling Stones for an intimate opener to the Zip Code Tour. If there's an opportunity to go, do it! Read more

    One of my favorite venue. Rooftop patio for fresh air and you can drink and smoke. Bar available upstairs. Overlooking Hollywood Blvd.

    A fun venue with some great performers. Sometimes the bar makes custom drinks and names them after the performers - I loved the "Matt and Kim".

    Come early to your Fonda Show. They have 25 micro brews at the connected restaurant plus food and the door is open between both locales. Fonda only has two brews on draft and no food...

    Get GA balcony tickets and get there when doors open. You can thank me when you get comfy seats, center on the stage, and there's no line at the bar.

    The sound system is incredible, making the balcony the most magical spot for music in LA. Order the Kobe Brew Burger & Sweet Potato Fries from the adjoining Blue Palms Brewhouse.

    Lovely venue. Two tips: Stop at Blue Palms beforehand. Buy your tickets from Amoeba if possible so you don't need to pay the extortionate AXS fees

    Views are best from the elevated platforms on the side. Don't forget to go up to the roof for a cigarette and excellent view of Hollywood.

    Looking for a bit of fresh air? Go up to the rooftop for a drink or a cigarette during the show, you can still watch what’s happening projected onto the wall!

    Go up stairs for a great view of hollywood and of the W hotel. Music is different then the main room usually, but its nice and has places to sit.

    Good sightlines from the entire downstairs. Go to the lobby bar for faster service, generally. Avert your eyes from the oddly ornate lamp installation and the odd murals.

    Beautiful interior!! Don't forget to check out the upstairs roof area! The audio is unbelievable. Park in the neighborhood behind, or pay $20, your choice!

    Balcony seating has great aerial view - floor is fantastic too (lots of railing to lean against next to the side wall booth seating). Read more

    Take the metal stairs up from the rooftop patio, and go inside the small room to watch the show from a tiny balcony with it's own private bathroom!

    You can usually find free parking up the street and around the corner just down from Hollywood Presbyterian. Check posted signs as they vary per half block in that area.

    The balcony at the Music Box is the most magical spot in LA. The sound is heavenly if the mix is done right.

    Small spot that attracts really good bands. There isn't a bad seat in the place. -Danielle Keene, Top Chef Just Desserts

    Always but floor tickets cause you can bounce between balcony and floor, but if you have balcony, can't go to floor section.

    Manchester Orchestra's 3rd studio album boasts lush, almost operatic instrumentation. Sleeper Agent’s playful performance delighted audiences at this year’s SXSW. Don't miss both artists here, June 2.

    Have a couple shots at your car when you get there beforehand because a simple vodka & cran was $10. My favorite venue yet!

    Be sure to keep your feet planted on the ground during heavy-bass shows. The sound system is one of the best I've heard.

    Great place to see bands, especially on the floor. Agree w/ others, the drinks are expensive and you should park down the street.

    Really light security. Bring a flask and avoid the insanely expensive cocktails. Ya heard?
