It has everything from sports and music venues to restaurants and night clubs, bot bowling alleys, museums and movie theaters. Here are just a sample of some of the major entertainment spots in the L.A. Live district.
The Microsoft Theater is a music and theatre venue seating 7,100, and The Novo is an intimate venue which can seat up to 2,300 people for live music and cultural events.
