The ESPN Zone in LA Live is the newest establishment in the entertainment complex adjacent to Staples Center that continues to evolve. As the adjoining massive Ritz-Carlton high rise is being covered with mirror-like glass, the various clubs and eateries in it's shadow are opening one by one. The Nokia Theater was first, and more recently Club Nokia and the chic Lucky Strike bowling lanes opened their doors.

ESPN Zone sits on a prime location right on the corner of Chick Hearn Place and Figueroa, spanning two floors and not wasting an inch. The state-of-the-art sports bar features several lounges and other rooms including The Screening Room with a wall plastered with flat screens and individual monitors at each booth. Also on the lower level is The Studio Grill for casual dining and a slick looking bar right on the corner. Upstairs is another comfortable lounge with adjoining private rooms (with fat leather couches) that overlook the wall of sports in the previously-mentioned Screening Room below. Also upstairs is the Sports Arena, with high tech interactive games of every description lining the walls.

Other establishments that will be in the LA Live include the Conga Room, Flemings, Trader Vic's, Grammy Museum. Ritz Carlton, Wolfgang Puck, Yard House, Katsuya, Rock'n Fish, Lawry's Carvery, Rosa Mexicano and more.
