  • Sono stato allo Staples Center in occasione di una partita Nba dei Lakers e devo dire mi ha fatto un ottima impressione sia come organizzazione che come bellezza. Ottima l'acustica

  • All I can say is ya better give yourself the extra hour to get through the mess of trying to park, and oh yeah, the $20 you will have to pay to park anywhere near. Now, I've only been once for a concert and don't really plan to go back anytime soon. The venue is very nice, don't get me wrong, but everything was a hassle from parking, waiting in line to buy an outrageously priced McDonald's hamburger, trying to find our seats, which were taken by someone else, getting an entire glass of wine poured on me by the bimbo who came in late and couldn't find her seat. THANK GOD I have the bladder of a camel and didn't require a trip to the restroom afterwards. It's gonna take someone spectacular in concert for me to make my second journey back to Staples Center.
  • Great venue for games and concerts with a variety of food options and lots of drink/bar areas. Love coming here to watch the LA Kings. Great views no matter where your seat is. Easy to navigate around the venue and the staff is helpful.
  • We went for the league of legends 2016 world finals. All the staff were very friendly and the seats were amazing! There were well over a thousand people in the audience up to the giant 4th sorry, but because of the 4 huge displays everything was easy to see no matter where you sat.
  • Go kings go! Love staples. Ushers are super friendly and bathrooms are always clean.
  • Another one of our outings took us here. Only because I'm not a huge fan of the conventional, modern ways of child rearing, the little goes just about everywhere with me. This happened to be something we both enjoyed. The Ringling Bros Barnum's and Bailey had and "out of this world" show that was like the space galaxy come to life in that arena. The tickets were bought discounted on Groupon and we took an Uber there to avoid parking fees. Immediately we found how and where to enter, security did a bag check, and didn't even make a fuss about outside food or beverages (she has to have her organic juice boxes everyday) when we got there. All the staff directed us exactly where to go and we made a pit stop at the concession stand. Before I could pay for the order, it was already hot and waiting. I gave a sigh I guess he overheard and mumbled to myself that if that person serving the food moves that fast I might have to marry him and walked away. The chili cheese nachos tasted home made since the chili contained beans but was truly appetizing. The show was amazing, something to watch fully and we both wanted to see it again. Seats comfy and clean so it was nice.
