The Loge Level seats are closest to the court and are numbered 101-119. Premier Seating and Middle Level are at the same height but Premier are numbered 1-18 while Middle Level are numbered 205-219. The Crypto Arena is interesting as each section provides seating up to Row A but there is an entire Section deemed "Floor" which consists of 2 rows on the baseline and 1 on the sidelines of the court. These seats are absurdly close to the action and when you find yourself in Row 1 in front of Section 110 or 112, you are facing both benches. These seats are typically filled with Hollywood A-listers, athletes or musicians. Be sure to get a pic for Instagram of Jack Nicholson who has owned courtside seats for more than two decades.
Fans interested in the best seats with accommodations should buy club level seats with access upscale dining selections, buffet tables all game and a full bar. Premier Seating are suites, tables and lounges while Middle Level are standard first balcony seats. The spacious dining room can seat hundreds comfortably. Need some fresh air? The outdoor terrace attached has one of the best views of L.A. Live. If you are looking for great seats for cheap, then check out corner sections on the club level.
