Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles

4.6
The Walt Disney Concert Hall at 111 South Grand Avenue in Downtown of Los Angeles, California, is the fourth hall of the Los Angeles Music Center and was designed by Frank Gehry. It opened on October 24, 2003. Bounded by Hope Street, Grand Avenue, and 1st and 2nd Streets, it seats 2,265 people and serves, among other purposes, as the home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale. The hall is a compromise between an arena seating configuration, like the Berliner Philharmonie by Hans Sharon, and a classical shoebox design like the Vienna Musikverein or the Boston Symphony Hall.Lillian Disney made an initial gift of $50 million in 1987 to build a performance venue as a gift to the people of Los Angeles and a tribute to Walt Disney's devotion to the arts and to the city. The Frank Gehry-designed building opened on October 24, 2003. Both Gehry's architecture and the acoustics of the concert hall, designed by Minoru Nagata, the final completion supervised by Nagata's assistant and protege Yasuhisa Toyota, have been praised, in contrast to its predecessor, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

  • What a fabulous work of art! Unfortunately, we got down there too late in the day for an inside tour of the building but we walked around the outside and it’s impressive. Self guided tours end at 2:00...  more »
  • Very nice place to visit in downtown Los Angeles. Has guided tour via audio phone. Too bad the main auditorium was closed the day I went to visit him. External gardens are very nice too.

  • I went to a concert of the LA Philharmonic, Dudamel. I think the natural interior with lots of trees, unique in appearance, beautiful, stress-free halls. At the site of the Hall took the ticket. Print bar-coded tickets and brought.

  • One of the most beautiful buildings in downtown Los Angeles. Great place to take pictures. There is a garden on the third floor where you can really see the artist side of you come out if you like taking pictures. It does not matter if you are a local or a tourist, it's a place you must visit and make sure to check out one of the concerts. Amazing architecture and great location!
  • This place was beautiful and just fascinating to look at. I also really enjoyed the views from the back of the concert hall. Make sure you bring friends and cameras to capture all the memories you will make your. By the way the parking structure to this building is a good and safe parking space.
  • Easy parking, lots of nooks in the hall to sit and people watch. The number of seats inside the hall are fewer than you might expect but it really makes every seat a "good" seat. A great destination in Los Angeles. The wraps available at the concession stands were surprisingly good! The gift store is also a nice place to snag a gift for someone back home.
  • Well organized, decent spirits the sound is just OKAY. You would think it would sound beyond amazing once you see all the wood works once you are seated . I was hoping to feel as though I'm inside the insturment as far as sound goes. This is my third time here and the last two performance were SO underwhelming! I'll continue to go see The Chamber Orchestra! The orchestra is MUCH more alive and the spirits and vibes afterward are lovely to say the least. Also, I never feel over dressed when I see The Chamber Orchestra, everyone at the Walt Disney Hall dress like slobs.
  • We saw 'Naturally 7' on 22 December 2017. They gave a great show. The concert hall is magnificent. Well worth the price of the tickets in itself.

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
