Microsoft Theater is located in Microsoft Square that reminded me of Times Square in New York. We say the Grammy Salute to the Bee Gees. Don't miss Wolfgang Puck's restaurant on the Square.

I have been here many times. Now as Microsoft and before as Nokia. I believe it seats around 7,000 so a medium size venue with a great sound and lighting system. The staff is very nice and professional.

I experienced The Backlot Project’s “Back In The Saddle” program at Microsoft Theater, which featured a showing of “Blazing Saddles” plus a live in-person interview with Mel Brooks. The program was well organized, my seat was comfortable, and the guest restrooms were spacious and clean.

The Microsoft Theater is the perfect size for a concert. It is small enough so that you don't feel you are too far away from the performers.

My husband surprised me with tickets to The 80's weekend concert. What a great concert venue. We had such a good time going back to our high school years. The venue was jumping. Staff were all nice and it was close to where were staying.

My wife and I attended the Marc Anthony concert in October. This the 3rd time we have seen a concert at this theater. It is large enough to attract top talent but small enough to feel intimate. I would recommend not getting seats in orchestra right or left as the views are obsructed.

Concert was amazing. The entire theatre is lined with seats in a coliseum like fashion which is fantastic for viewing areas from any seat you purchase. The acoustics were also fantastic. Best venue for a concert I've been to.

Was here for a conference and the whole place is an experience. From the courtyard to the theater itself. Concessions where great, comfy seats.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
