What Are The San Manuel Tables At The Staples Center

San Manuel Table

San Manuel

The San Manuel Club seats at the STAPLES Center aren’t just tickets, their an experience. Attending the Lakers vs. Warriors game on Friday November 22nd was by far, the best Laker game and STAPLES Center visit I have ever had because of the San Manuel Club premier tickets.

As we approached the VIP entrance and went up the escalator, you are almost exactly where you need to be, so the location is extremely convenient – a definite plus. Entering a lobby area, I was greeted by a big metallic San Manuel Amphitheatre Club sign and some attendants who eagerly strapped me with a wrist band and directed us to our seats. The initial experience is in a word, awesome: A full bar area filled with beautiful people, a giant buffet and eating area – then looking left your blown away by an incredible view of the STAPLES Center floor. We arrived at our “semi private” area and were stunned with 4 plush living room type leather sofa chairs, a personal TV installed on the inside wall, small tables for snacks, and a private eating area for four that allows you to eat, while still seeing the game – a very intelligent and cool design.

San Manuel Table Lakers

After the personal server came by to explain the San Manuel Club dining experience and take our drink orders, we took in the phenomenal view of the game from our “open roof box”. The set up of the area is best suited for two couples as there are two chairs on two separate levels, but a group of four could have a great time in the space as well. The San Manuel Club seats are pretty darn good, I felt close to the action and you’ve got such a great view of the entire arena – looking left and right you can see the other San Manuel “boxes” lit up bright purple and the entire STAPLES Center lining either side with the court in the middle from most seats in the club.

The AMAZING buffet that came WITH the tickets as part of the San Manuel Package, included cool stuff like: coffee braised short rib, fresh veggies, Chinese food and all kinds of desserts. When I heard there was a buffet I wasn’t too sure at first, but I can tell you first hand – the San Manuel Club chefs know what they’re doing. The whole group was going back for seconds and thirds for a good part of the game – it was almost being in a super luxurious version of your living room with gourmet chefs catering, and the Lakers playing LIVE right in front of you!

The whole experience was my best yet at a Laker game, and at the STAPLES Center overall. The high end amenities make for a fun and relaxing live Laker game experience and then you throw in the included food and you’ve got a winner in my book. Next time I go to a Laker game I’m definitely going to try for San Manuel Club premier tickets.

San Manuel Tables are available for Lakers, Clippers and Kings Games at the LA Staples Center. Its a truly amazing experience to see a game in them.

Review of the Los Angeles Staples Center

Downtown Los Angeles Staples Center

Downtown Los Angeles Staples Center

The Staples Center is positioned in the heart of downtown Los Angles, so it is accessible from most significant freeways. It was rapidly built on an 18 month schedule at a price of roughly $300 million. While the seating differs for other tenants such as the Lakers and Clippers , the LA Kings seating potential is listed at 18,118.

The main factor this isn’t Five stars is that there are virtually no decent food choices here. But with LOS ANGELES Live just across Chick Hearn Ct., they are thankfully not too far away. As for the typical claims about this place:

Those lots with the guys waving the flags, advertising $20 and $25 parking? Those are for visitors!! The Pico Station of the Metro Blue line is ONE BLOCK from the Staples Center. And the Pico Station is ONE STATION away from the 7th/Metro station, that connects you to the Purple and Red Lines.

There isn’t a reason you must park close to Staples Center and pay the exorbitant fees. Even if you can not take the train all the way in, it’s worth finding parking closer to 7th/Metro Center and taking the train down one stop. Additionally, you’ll be outside of the cluster trying to get back on the freeway at 8th or Olympic after the show.

You are going to spend $9 for a beer and nearly as much for red wine. This is pretty common. You’ll find some more elaborate alcoholic options at the Harbor or Figueroa Bars found near each of the main entrances of the building.

Before fans even set foot on the terrazzo floors in the arena, a rather fascinating vibe is produced from simply walking around the arena and taking in the sights at LA Live. For any given game, you’ll find crowds around the arena taking photos of the statues and trying to get their faces on many of the live tapings outside of the gates. Once the lights dim, fans will see the players walking through a makeshift castle on their way to the ice. The intros are rather long with all sorts of images being shown on the ice, green laser beams illuminating the arena, and a energetic chant of “Go Kings Go” to start off the action.

With numerous transplants in the LA area, you will find many opposing fans originally from different regions attending the games. This leads to some fantastic banter during the game and seems to engage the Kings fans even more. It creates an enjoyable ambiance from the first drop of the puck. The LA fans have had a great showing recently at the Staples Center, making a guest team game a tough ticket to come by. Of all LA-based professional sporting events, the fans here seem to be in their seats for gametime.

Those individuals in the maroon jackets have been extremely effective every time I’ve needed them. On the latest visit, one guy even walked us nearly a quarter around the Center in search of some special masks that had been handed out to prior arrivals.

Okay, any artist that performs at the Staples Center will likely be high class. We’ve also got our pro basketball and hockey teams. The Hollywood Bowl is, in my opinion, the only other venue in Los Angeles that brings in the heavy hitting headliner shows.. No, they’re not the personal shows that will allow you to get up close and personal with the performer.

You can go to the Greek, the Gibson, the Forum, the Home Depot Center, or perhaps hop next door to the Nokia Theater, but playing Staples Center is truly an achievement for any performer. We were there recently for Kaskade to not only be the first EDM artist to headline, but also to sell out, Staples Center.

Staples Center was the very first arena in sports to become the long term home of three professional sports teams. While the setting between a hockey game and basketball game are vastly various, the turnover rate to change one to another is rather outstanding. Appreciate the Staples Center for what it is: A Los Angeles landmark and an indelible part of the city’s history.

If you can’t stand expensive parking and costly beverages, but you love stars, basketball games, and people-watching, then I have 3 words for you: WELCOME TO LOS ANGELES.

- Chris Mattos

Then there is the LA Kings

The Staples Center has the pleasure of witnessing the high-scoring, high-octane offense of the Lob City-dubbed Los Angeles Clippers.     As long as the LA Lakers have a certain fellow that wears #24, scoring will always take place no matter who is on his supporting cast.   However, there is one team that occupies the Staples Center that definitely has not lit up the league in terms of scoring.   Despite holding the #7 spot in the NHL Western Conference Standings, the Los Angeles Kings are dead last in the NHL in scoring.   Their defense has kept them in the playoff hunt as they’re 4th in the league in defense with only 116 goals allowed.    The Kings have lost their last two games and managed only 47 shots on goal combined within those two games.  Conventional wisdom dictates that if they want to play postseason hockey, they have to start putting the puck in the back of the net.    Daryl Sutter has failed to generate some offense for the LA Kings nearly a month after replacing the axed Terry Murray.

Kings GM Dean Lombardi is on the hot seat.    This is the third head coach that has been hired under his tenure.    At some point, the fan base is going to take their finger-pointing away from the head coach and towards the front office.   The point could be right now.    The acquisition of Mike Richards has failed to jump-start the sputtering engine that is the Kings offense.     In the last 18 games, he has managed just one measly goal.  Gulp.    Simon Gagne is on the shelf with a concussion.  GULP!

They have 20 days until the deadline to try to make a move that could at least alleviate their offensive struggles.     The lining may not be silver at all.   Dean Lombardi has stated out loud his current struggle to find a worthy acquisition. Last year’s acquisition of Dustin Penner by Lombardi has panned out to the tune of four overall goals during the season.

As it is, the Kings may be too salary-cap strapped to make a move at the trade deadline.   They will have nearly 14 million off of their cap room for next season.   However, it’s becoming increasingly unlikely that Dean Lombardi may not get a chance to work with the new cap room.

Los Angeles Kings Tickets are available for all home games at the STAPLES Center. Score your Blackhawks Vs Kings, Bruins Vs Kings or cross town rivals Ducks Vs Kings Tickets.

The Staples Center

Standing tall outside on the Star Plaza are statues of Los Angeles sports heroes Magic Johnson, Wayne Gretzky, Oscar De La Hoya, Lakers broadcaster Chick Hearn, and, most recently, Jerry West, the literal “icon” for the National Basketball Association. Today five major sports teams call the Staples Center home, including the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers of the NBA, the WNBA L.A. Sparks, the NHL’s L.A. Kings, and now the NBA D-League’s L.A. D-Fenders. Previously, before the team’s dissolution, the AFL’s L.A. Avengers played at the Staples Center as well. The Center was constructed in just under a year, from 1998-1999, by the Staples corporation. There was some controversy regarding its founding, as the Los Angeles Times Magazine devoted an entire issue in October of 1999 to the opening of the giant new sports arena. The Times were discovered to be a “founding partner” of the Center in exchange for a hefty profit-share, free advertising, and other goodies. The question was raised: what is the relationship between struggling print-media outlets and advertising sources that lead to “profit-sharing”? 300 workers from the Times itself signed a petition in protest later that year, but little was ever done about it and the issue has nearly been forgotten.

Aside of its controversial founding, the Center has gone on to easily recover the $375 million dollar cost of construction. It has also been discovered that the L.A. Times was one of 12 profit sharing companies involved in the founding. In fact, the Center makes so much money per event that it has been quite a boon for the local community. Almost nightly it can house up to 19,000 fans with an average ticket price of well over $60. The Center recently got exposure in the indie flick Drive starring Ryan Gosling, where, during a heist of some kind, uses traffic from the aftermath of a Clipper game to disguise his getaway. With over 250 events year-round and more than 4 million visitors, the Staples Center is a fixture for the Greater L.A. area.

More recently, the Center has become part of its parent company’s, Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), L.A. Live complex. Located in downtown Los Angeles, the Live complex is nearly 6 million square feet of Los Angeles entertainment, including bars, theaters, restaurants, ballrooms, museums, and residences. A big secret to the rest of the country, L.A. Live is currently constructing Farmers Field, an NFL stadium set to bring professional football back to L.A. Since the Staples Center is home to both of Los Angeles’ professional basketball teams, the Lakers and the Clippers, whenever the two teams clash for hometown dominance (a clash that has more than naught ended in a Lakers victory), L.A. erupts. Bringing a competitive NFL team back to L.A. would only serve to stir up even more fanfare for professional sporting events. Combined with the recent promised ascension of the L.A. Clippers as “Lob City” starring Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, Los Angeles’ prized sporting Center will feature prominently on the minds of many sports fans throughout the nation for years to come.
