if you have the opportunity to see a performance here, take it. Bring your picnic - go early for good parking and chillax at this one of a kind venue

“Yet another hidden gem in LA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

There is not a bad seat in the house at the Greek. Every year their concert choices are very diverse. I love the surroundings Giffith Park. You can picnic before the shows. Parking is the only downside. If you can walk the best is to park down below on Los Feliz and do the hike, if not just know it's stacked parking like the Hollywood Bowl. Happy Show to all!

“Attend and Enjoy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

Built into the cup of a hill in Griffith Park, you can see the stage, you can hear what's going on, and if you tire of the act you can watch the stars in the sky and the occasional skunk strolling down the aisle. This is the perfect summer date, the air gets cool enough to make you cuddle, bringing a picnic and a blanket is completely acceptable, and your fellow concert attendees are just as happy as you are to be in this beautiful spot. This is a very nice house for any act from singers to musicals.

“Pretty Setting, Old School Design & Intimacy Make it a Great Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

This is NOT a huge outdoor theatre and it is an older building but it is a great place to see a concert! In fact I'm pretty sure it was recently voted as being one of the top places to see an outdoor concert in the US. I've been to quite a few concerts here and have had different seats but they were all good because it's an intimate ( for an outdoor venue ) theatre and you can really "see" from anywhere. I would suggest trying to get the most expensive parking pass possible BEFORE the event if they are still available though, because the only drawback is that it could take a while to get to your car afterwards because when this theatre was built it wasn't built for the number and size of cars of today. Still, I wouldn't let parking keep you from going - when you really want to feel like you can actually see the performers well in an outdoor setting - this is the place to go.

“A Night at the Greek.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

I recently took my 11-year old son to see Cheap Trick perform Dream Police at The Greek. It was a excellent night. It's an open air venue and the weather was perfect. The band sounded great. Near stage seating certainly helped too. One thing - the sound at the stage level is a bit muddy. And for those with hearing issues, I'd suggest seats at the 2nd level.
