    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

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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 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!

    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.

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

    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.

    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:)

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

    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.

    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!

    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

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

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

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

    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!

    Even the bad seats are good 👍🏼 "Quick Park" is expensive, but so 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.

    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.

    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

    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

    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.
