Steps Away From the L.A. Experience

At L.A. LIVE, entertainment and unique experiences are just steps away from the convention center and conference hotels. It’s an urban core with three live entertainment venues and more than 20 restaurants. Whether you want to dance, dine, tour a museum or take in an NBA game, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

ACFAS attendees can eat, drink and play at places like Arena or Microsoft Theater, home of the EMMYS, ESPYS and many other events.

Check out the list below for a taste of six unique activities L.A. LIVE has to offer during the ACFAS 2023 Scientific Conference.

Top 6 Things to Do Around L.A. LIVE During the ACFAS 2023 Annual Scientific Conference


1. Feed your inner foodie at restaurants, bars and coffee shops.

Whether you want breakfast or dinner, Soul Food or Japanese, casual or upscale, there’s a culinary experience for everyone at L.A. LIVE 


2. Relax and recharge at the Ritz-Carlton Spa.

Did someone say foot massage? Get off your feet for a while and sip a glass of champagne while you enjoy one of the Ritz-Carlton Spa’s signature services that will pamper you from head to toe.


3. Catch a flick in 4DX at Regal L.A. LIVE.

What’s 4DX, you ask? Imagine a movie-going experience like none other where the sights on the screen are just one component of the sensory spectacle. Perfectly paired wind, fog, mist, scents and seat-activated motion immerse you in the film. Hang onto your popcorn.


4. Peek behind the music at the GRAMMY Museum.

Audiophiles will be in their element at this museum, which gives visitors an insider’s view of the history of music’s most-coveted award and the musicians who have earned it through the years.

Then watch the Bucks try their hand at Kawhi Leonard and the LA Clippers on Friday (Feb. 10). Close out your conference watching the LA Kings skate against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday (Feb. 11).
