Awesome landmark with classic Art Deco architecture, the Wiltern is located in K-Town on Wilshire Blvd. We had to park in the lot but rounded to the other side due to massive amounts of traffic circling around the venue.
The venue itself is pretty cool and reminded me of a slightly larger House of Blues. I saw Ingrid Michaelson at the Wiltern last week and I wasn't disappointed in the venue nor the artist. The music was great minus the $20 cost to park. Luckily we had a parking attendant gesture us to park in a prime spot where the elevator was. They sell alcohol and food inside. The hot dogs range about $4 - $5. Heineken was $10. They had the normal 'concert' goods like shirts, bags, CDs, etc.
It was a decent turnout and even though we had GA standing room only tickets, we found a spot with a rail and was able to 'lean' against it all night. Perfect, if you find it hard to stand for 3 hours. Even if I have seats, I find that most people stand throughout concerts, therefore forcing you to stand if you want to see. Our rail happened to be on a slope so I didn't have to strain myself and was high enough so that I could see over most people's heads. That's an ideal concert experience for me. Even better were the bacon-wrapped hot dogs waiting for us outside after the concert.

Is it me or does it ALWAYS seem so smoky in here? I come here for concerts and I love it.
There is a bar downstairs... with their own bathroom! Woot! So if you went to a concert where it's mainly teenagers and you're over 21 and don't wanna wait in line... BOOM. Bar bathroom. 21+ only, biatches.
Open bar. Tons of drinks and a pricey amount. :P Cash Only.
Even water is expensive. :P
Bottom floor is ALL standing. -_-
So if you really wanna see a show up close, GET THERE EARLY.
If you don't care... still get there early. Crowds are crazy :P
Top floor... seats! :D
View is alright if you're closer. If you're far... it's ehh...
Street or the Ralph's parking lot ($20)
Great concerts. :D
