    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!

    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.

    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

    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!

    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

    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.

    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

    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

    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!

    Most beautiful venue (location in general!) that I've experienced since moving to LA one year ago. Great atmosphere and performance at the Eek! Halloween extravaganza :)

    CA (See) A more intimate version of The Hollywood Bowl, The Greek offers great acoustics in an amazing outdoor setting. Bring a date, it's also a perfect spot for makin' out!

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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:)

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Parking sucks. $15 to stack. You can't leave until all the people around you do. Try to carpool or arrive early and park on the street.

    Parking situation is less-than-desirable, got stuck in a dirt lot in a BMW that I consider my child. But the venue is cool. Can't wait for the show to start!
