|About these ratings|
This Frank Gehry-designed concert hall has helped revive downtown Los Angeles, which was once dominated by mundane office buildings and lackluster nightlife options. Now, nightlife and culture burgeon in the area, and the concert hall is at the forefront. The curvaceous, stainless steel exterior is worth a visit alone, but so is a performance of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, which holds most of its concerts at the hall. For ticket and price information, visit the Philharmonic's website.
You can take a free tour of the concert hall, which allows you an audio tour of the exterior and interior (though the actual concert auditorium is off limits). While some travelers were awestruck by the tour, others found it dull. If you're interested in architecture—or simply want to see another side of Los Angeles—a visit to the hall is highly recommended.
