    Great venue! Shows end before midnight if you're one watching a show on week nights. Great for old peeps like me! Only get the food if you're really really hungry or else you'll regret it.

    A great classic 1930's music venue with awesome acoustics. If a band you like is playing here make the trek, it's worth it.

    Bypass the mess that is the Ralphs/Wiltern parking lot and park on the street if you're lucky or go to the radio Korea building. Was an easy in/out and $10 for Franz Ferdinand on 4.29.2014.

    Most people don't think about the Loge section, but it's a great place to sit if you don't want to be on your feet all night. From the first few rows, you get a better view than some of the floor

    Old 1930's vibe inside. Really great acoustics. Awesome mix between seats and standing room. If you can get a VIP pass for behind the sound boards I definately recommend it! Real great from there.

    Beautiful old school Art Deco venue. Could probably use a face lift. But still a great place to see a concert.
  • Where Los Angeles Magazine
    The Wiltern was built in glamorous art deco style. Headliners like Wilco and Jack White stop here. Balcony seating and multiple levels of standing room offer stellar stage views. Read more

    Historic venue made a little more historic by playing on its stage. Backstage is labyrinthine with 4 floors of catering, spacious dressing rooms and a meditation chamber. It’s good to be home.

    The people who work here are terrible but it's a beautiful space and the sound is amazing. Just get here early so you can actually see the stage.

    Has to be one of my favorite venues in LA. Eclectic mix of bands that show up. I remember seeing a Japanese metal band here when I was in high school. 👌

    In 2009, Nine Inch Nails (or, at least, the touring version of the band) played their final show, at The Wiltern. Trent Reznor still records under the moniker, but the live band is no more (for now).

    The best sound/view is by the bar in the back - the one on the left as you walk in. Obvious bonus: YOU'RE BY THE BAR.

    If coming from OC. Park at Union Station and take the Metro Purple Line. There is a Metro station across the street from the venue. Make sure to know what time the last train leaves though.

    Everyone who lives in LA should see a show here at least once. It is such an amazing venue! Smoke out back only.
  • Manda C.

    One of my least favorite venues in LA. The tiers make it difficult to see the stage. But that's hardly going to make you avoid seeing a band if they come around

    Sound is always solid at this venue but avoid the balcony seats. The stage is quite minuscule at that height.

    One of my favorite places to see a band. Also take the red line from NoHo and then the purple line to save money on parking!

    The parking lot behind the theater, adjacent to Ralph's, is not bicycle friendly. In fact they wanted to charge me $20 for the pleasure. A rack would be helpful at least.

    Lining up before a show is lame and a waste of time. Rock shows never start on time anyway. Remember there are other bars in this place besides the lobby, like inside the hall, downstairs by the bath Read more
