Came here recently to view Cirque Bezerk
The venue is nice. very intimate. I would LOVE to see a band or singer here, because it feels intimate, but still seems to be able to seat quite a few people. For Cirque Bezerk - i think this venue might be a bit too small for what they do.
Since I was there for an event, we were fortunate enough to be able to hang out in the VIP lounge and enter through the VIP entrance. The Lounge was very nice. Bar prices were par for a venue of this type.
Parking is a pain and expensive. It's LA Live folks, and right next door to the Staples Center. If there is a game or an event, you are screwed, and parking nearby is at least $25.
My tip - take the Metro rail. $1.50 each way per line you have to take and a lot of them have FREE parking lots. You can avoid the parking prices and the crazy traffic there.

An amazing concert venue!
I came here to see Akanishi Jin for two of his You&Jin concerts in LA. It was my first time at this venue and I must admit that things went very smoothly.
There was a long line as we all waited for doors to open for Jin's first concert in the United States. The lines were well-organized and there were many people emphasizing no cameras. I was pretty impressed with Club Nokia's staff as they were very courteous and efficient.
After standing in line outside of the venue, you go up the escalator in groups to queue up for the metal detectors and bag checks. Fast and easy, we were in and the people scanning our tickets directed us to a lady who was in charge of putting wristbands on. She told us where our bar was and we headed straight up the stars after picking up a photobook.
The VIP bar is located on the fourth floor underneath the balcony seating. It's nice and swanky and our bartender (Talani) was amazing! Drinks were nice and strong and delicious and we sat in one of the curtained areas. There were several of these alongside the bar and they had a couch, some plush chairs and a small coffee table. You can also order food if you feel like nibbling on something. There are also tvs scattered around the opposite side where there are long continuous couches and chairs.
You can go to your seats at the entrances on other side of the bar and there are restrooms as well so you don't have to go up to the top of the balcony seating to go.
There's a bar on each floor so drinks can be had by all.
There are no bad seats in this concert venue. We were lucky to be in the front row of the balcony and had a great view of everything!
Leaving the venue was highly efficient as the staff were firm but polite about where to go.
I would definitely go to another concert here if one of my favorite artists came! It's a more intimate experience (only 2300 seated) than a larger venue like the neighboring Nokia Theatre, which holds about 7100 people.
