It’s a welcome sight to see LA’s music venues back in business again. These beloved — and sometimes historic — venues closed in March, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and remained so until June. These spots are now ready to receive concertgoers in what is arguably the music capitol of the United States. For this reason, it’s crucial to planning the entire evening.
Dinner and a concert, it’s an ideal lineup for Los Angeles residents or those visiting this vibrant city. LA’s venues have range, from the Echo’s intimate space, the Mayan’s majestic revival-style architecture, or the nearly 100-year-old Hollywood Bowl that takes up an entire hillside.
