Indian Wedding Venue: Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

{About Indian Weddings at Dorothy Chandler Pavilion}

The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, in downtown Los Angeles is one of the halls in the Los Angeles Music Center and also one of the largest performing arts centers in the United States. The Oscars have been hosted at Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in the theater, for an audience of over 3000.

The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in downtown LA is new to Indian weddings and features two stunning venues – details below. There are a number of hotels nearby that can serve as your ‘home base’ for the wedding weekend – to setup a room block, get ready, host a welcome party, or send off brunch.

You my want to consider organizing a shuttle for guests from the hotel to/from the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion for your guests. This is not only a hospitable gesture but it ensures your events start on time as everyone will arrive per the shuttle’s schedule vs. if your guests all took Uber or Lyft to get to the venue. In would be inconvenient for your guests to rent cars and drive to the venue, but still here’s parking info for the Music Center.
