14 Places to Eat or Drink Around Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium

From mariscos to barbecue, where to eat nearby LA’s big new NFL arena

View as Map

Now that the NFL season is in full swing, Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium is fully open. Though the $5 billion entertainment complex opened in September 2020, the rules surrounding social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic prevented SoFi from being used for its full purpose. While the greater Hollywood Park complex will gain a handful of new tenants soon (including Three Weavers Brewing and Sky’s Gourmet Tacos), the schedule is already packed. The Chargers and the Rams have 18 combined home games throughout the NFL season. Plus, the Rolling Stones also have two October dates planned on the SoFi stage, so it’s always a solid move to figure out where to eat and drink pre- or post-event. Here now are 14 places to do just that.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; the latest data about the delta variant indicates that it may pose a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
