The 50 Best Concert Venues in America

37. Largo at the Coronet

City: Los Angeles
Address: 366 North La Cienega Blvd.
Capacity: 130
Coolest Feature: Their no cell phone rule forces you to enjoy performances, old school style

When the original Largo moved from the spot on Fairfax that it held down for nearly 20 years, fans had to wonder whether or not it would stay true to its history when owner Mark Flanagan moved it into the old Coronet Theatre building. That was only 5 years ago, and while it hasn't come close to eclipsing its predecessor, it's done a fine job of upholding tradition. The Coronet Theatre was built in 1947 and stars including Charlton Heston and Glen Close have performed there in the past. In addition to carrying on the name of the Largo, it's also continued one of its most famous residencies: that of producer and Kanye favorite Jon Brion, who still performs once a month. Long live the Largo.
