    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

    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...

    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.

    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".

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    if the music is too loud for your ears, hang out in the balcony. the view is just as good. very little "old people" here so its even better

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

    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

    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.

    No matter where you stand still a great view. You can watch the live show upstairs as well.

    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!

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

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

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

    My favorite venue! No bad views of the stage - intimate setting that adds to the energy of any show you attend.

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

    Awesome sound, friendly and fast bartenders, and solid sight lines. Rooftop patio is fantastic.

    I can't stress enough how immoral and horrible this theater is. For $100, I was put, standing, in what an usher confirmed is usually a fire exit except tonight. They knew they were cheating people.

    Great venue, nice and intimate. Neighborhood is kind of iffy (lots of weirdos) but that's Hollywood I guess.

    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.

    The bartender had a negative tone, wasn't nice. Cocktails are tiny and $13. Not worth it. Music is fine.

    My favorite place to see a band in Hollywood! Definetly one of the more classy venues in H-Wood!

    Security is overly stupid here. Big time search and pat down. Strict enforcement of "in" and"out" hallway. Even if the place is empty

    the rooftop bar is cool but the floor is where you want to be

    One of my favorite venues! Balcony is relaxing but I always prefer the pit :)

    One of my fave venues in LA. If the band on stage is a snore, hit the upstairs patio!

    A date venue that lets you transition from awkward silence to a bump and grind in the course of a few hours.
