Description
Showtime at the El Rey Theatre happens live in Los Angeles. Beautiful artistry everywhere you turn sets the stage for live music entertainment. You may take a seat along the walls of the lounge ... Read more
setting. But, expect to party the night away with plenty room on the dance floor. The El Rey Theatre was originally built as a movie house in 1936. That all changed in 1994, switching to a music house. The lounge/club will draw you into an intimate surrounding. Grab a drink and relish in good music for a night at the El Rey Theatre.

This venue was small and intimate. It looked kind of like a casino. The sound system was great. The lights were a bit basic. The drinks were strong. Was great

Came here to see a band and the location was convenient but parking was only garage or if you were lucky, a metered spot. Venue wasn't bad.

Came here for my first country music concert - Kip Moore.

GREAT Concert!

PROS:
* Small, intimate concert hall
* Great decor
* large bar area

CONS:
* Small bathroom (3 or 4 stalls)
* Typical tho: expensive drinks
* Lack of sitting area

This place is great for small concerts, but there needs to be more bathrooms and at least some seating area.

Great concert tho.

I was here for the cover girl event of 2011. The place has a nice stage where there is standing room for performances. A nice venue to hold a concert and it is quite nice in terms of atmosphere.

Saw one of my first concerts here (RX Bandits.) Crowded and a bit rundown but does the job.

A great venue to see a show. The theatre is all general admission/ standing room only. It's big enough to attract larger names, but small enough to feel intimate. It has an art deco feel, but not as spectacular as some of LA's other venues from that era.
