Getting to Your Lakers Suite
Your Lakers suite experience begins with VIP entry into the Staples Center. Using the Star Plaza VIP Entrance, just left of the main entrances at LA Live Atrium, guests will go through security and up an escalator. This gate will open 2 hours prior to tipoff. On three consecutive levels, Lakers suites wrap the arena. The suite level closest to the court will be the A Level, followed by the B Level and C Level. Stairs or an escalator will take you to your appropriate level for the game. You can see the suite map here for guidance. On each level, every luxury box is numbered, and restrooms are spread out for your convenience. As you find your suite, scan your ticket at the door to let you in.
Inside Your Lakers Suite
This is the WOW factor you have been waiting for. As you walk in, the open-air suite reveals the court with all your amenities surrounding you. Pre-ordering food and beverage is a must for the best experience. Ordering catering through Levy Restaurants at least 2 business days prior to your games assures you that your food and beverage will be setup for your arrival. This allows the party to begin the second you walk in. The interior of the suite will feature a refrigerator, sink, counter-space for food, a large HDTV, and a large table with stools for entertaining. As you approach the balcony seating, two rows of stadium seats face the court with additional bar stools just behind them. Above the fixed seating is another TV so you can catch every replay. Depending on the suite, there is enough stadium seats for 8-12 guests. Max capacity for most suites will be 18 people. During the Lakers game, you will find most people would rather stand so they can eat and mingle throughout the game. If for any reason you need any assistance, a Lakers suite attendant is available using the in-suite telephone.
Lakers Win! It is Time to Go
Following the game, you will make your way out of your suite the same way you entered. Since the Staples Center suite levels are private, exiting the venue is not as hectic as it would be with a general admission ticket. Typically, security will ask for you to leave your suites 15-20 minutes following the ending of the game.
See our Staples Center Suites for more information, pricing and availability on luxury boxes for the Lakers or any upcoming event.
