  • The Hyde Lounge is amazing. I booked a table/seat combo package for 10 people and was not disappointed. We were treated VIP all night. The staff was top notch. Our host Michelle provided incredible service, she made great suggestions. We enjoyed delicious food and drinks at our table all night while watching the Clippers game. The watermelon shots were very tasty. I am definitely booking another private event here. If you want to enjoy a sporting event or concert, while being pampered this is definitely the best way to do it!! 10 ⭐ in my book!!
  • I was very happy with the precautions that the Staple Center has. The best thing to know about the Staple Center is that no matter where you sit you always have a great view. This last visit we were on the ice for the KINGS game. It was awesome! Looking forward to more games this season. GO KINGS GO!
