The Forum's free wifi is named "Fabulous Forum" it isn't far-off from the truth. Aside from the tight spacing between rows, think discount airline, it is a pleasant place. It's cool that the "classic" original architecture has been enhanced and the lightning made current.
The bar(s) and concession areas are inviting and well attended-to and service was commendable. The space overall, made it easy to catch-up and converse with friends. The wall-art or almost-murals to the greats ( Michael Jackson, Elvis and others who have performed here) are a nice touch. The venue is small(er) and at capacity may seat upwards 17,500 whereas the Staples Center is nearly 18,118. It may be better to hear a band rather a single vocalist, or sole performer due the bleakness looking-towards, a well-lit, empty or unfilled stage. There are really no bad seats - again, the venue is fab.
Men's & Women's Restrooms are subterranean - meaning steps down & back-up, it's meant to eliminate lines encroaching into concession areas - surely a 1960's design noting smoking was allowed indoors back then. Other reviewers may not have considered the decade(s) of original design.
Parking is cash only, $25.00 on average. Cocktails a 1.5oz pour - $11.00; and a large Heinken $12. Credit cards are accepted at concession areas.
