    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 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.

    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

  • LAist

    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!

    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!

    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 :)

    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.

    Ken Carson · December 21, 2010
  • Kim A.

    This is an outdoor venue. Dress appropriately. Parking costs $15. Food and beverages cost a lot of money. You can bring your own factory sealed water. Don't smoke pot inside; it's just so rude. Read more

    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!

    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

    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.

    Sam Wing · May 3, 2015
  • Zigabid Z.

    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.

    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.

    Jessica Plautz · June 16, 2013
  • Suzie

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

    Stack parking is a pain and there's a bit of a trek getting up to the gates... Wear comfy shoes and bring a jacket-cold and humid at night

    Lauren G · August 14, 2010
  • Stacey~Marie

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

  • gladys💗

    Just had an awful experience with the parking attendant. Poorly marked signs. Pay the extra $5 for non-stack parking. It's absolutely worth it.

    On June 16, Dispatch is back. The current tour represents the fifth (!) iteration of the group since its 1996 beginnings. But they’re playing new music for the first time in over ten years.

    Great outdoor venue. Perfect in the summer. Find tickets for shows at The Greek Theatre & negotiate your price on!

    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

    Adam Valencia · June 14, 2013
  • Ryan H.

    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.

    Ryan Harmon · September 30, 2011
  • Jennifer

    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.

    Jennifer · September 27, 2014
  • Angela P.

    Bring a picnic dinner and park in the lower lot; you can avoid all the crappy waiting for parking, and enjoy a stress-free dinner!

    Ladies, don't wait in line for the bathroom. There are two levels. Go to the stairway in the middle of the bathroom to get to the second level.

    Melanie Reiter · October 21, 2012

    Terrific outdoor venue. Parking is not that bad. Go about 90 min early & try street parking on Hillhurst. Nice 5 min walk.

    Amy Yen · September 22, 2010
  • Pelin G.

    Love the acoustics of this place, it could be a little chilly a night so make sure to bring a jacket 😊

  • Melissa P.

    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.

    Melissa Polinar · September 26, 2015
  • Ed V.

    Do dine and ride from the restaurants that let you park for the whole show and shuttle you to the front entrance

    Ed Vazquez · October 5, 2013
  • Brian F.

    It was a fantastic venue! Bring cash though because various card machines went down.

    Brian Fulsom · July 8, 2013
  • Darshna

    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:)

    Get the wine by the bottle for only 22.50.'s crappy wine but you get the most bang for your buck.

    Dylan S · October 14, 2013
  • Leila Q.

    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!

    Leila Q · October 10, 2010
  • Sabrina A.

    I love the Greek!! Def my fav venue in LA where u feel like ur in the middle of the forest, listening to amazing artists under the stars!

    Sabrina Aflalo · May 6, 2013
  • Helen S.

    Terrible stacked parking - you are blocked in and have to wait for the car in front of or in back of you to leave.

    Helen Sakamoto · May 26, 2013
  • Lindsay G.

    The best outdoor venue in LA! Definitely get tickets to a Summertime show - well worth it!

    Lindsay Gabler · August 15, 2011

    On Sunday, Oct. 27, bring the whole family to The Greek Theatre for the third annual EEK! at The Greek, a symphonic Halloween extravaganza.

    Los Angeles · October 21, 2013
  • Sam M.

    Best outdoor venue in LA!! Not a bad seat in the house. And the bathrooms are readily available!

    Sam Miclette · October 3, 2010
  • Noni O.

    The sound quality between section A and B is ridiculous. Pay the extra to sit in section A.

  • Ian M.

    Stop by the Ovation Towers in the plaza or south concourse for a free download! Just need an email addy. :)

    Great venue! Probably my second favorite outdoor venue behind the Hollywood Bowl.

    Lauren :D · October 22, 2015
  • Frances Z.

    Parking sucks. Get there early for non-stacked. Otherwise plan on sitting in the car for a bit after the show is over.

    Frances Zapanta · August 16, 2010
  • Ramy E.

    Great concert venue in a romantic setting. Griffith Park is the backdrop.

    Ramy Eletreby · August 19, 2014
  • Heather A.

    Remember it's your right to get up and dance. Tell the fat old people behind you "they are not very rock and roll". That should shut them up.

    Heather A · July 17, 2010
  • AdventureGirl S.

    MaKe sure you get a box seat with friends for full service with waitresses!

    AdventureGirl Stef · October 9, 2010

    Purchase parking through Greek "Quick Park" is worth every dollar!

    Carolyn Himes · August 23, 2013
  • Karl H.

    You can park in Los Feliz Village and walk to the Greek. It's less than a mile.

  • Frankforeal

    Be careful! Parking says $15 but they charged us $20! So sneaky!
