Situated in the heart of Anaheim, the Platinum Triangle is a former ‘up-and-coming’ neighborhood that has now fully blossomed into a hip, desirable place to visit, and an even better place to live. Loaded with restaurants, breweries, concert venues and top-tier entertainment destinations, this once industrial-only zone is now a full-fledged hot-spot for food, fun and laid-back Southern California living. Here are a few of the top destinations in the Platinum Triangle:
Whether you’re enjoying a hockey game, watching some WWE action, taking in a UFC fight, or catching one of the major touring acts that often make stops at the Honda Center (including the likes of Jay-Z, Katy Perry and Kendrick Lamar), there’s always plenty of fun to be had at the home of the Anaheim Ducks.
For some, summertime only means one thing: baseball season. And if you’re anywhere near the platinum triangle, you’ve got premium access to one of the best ballparks in the game. Although the Los Angeles Angels might have dropped the “of Anaheim” from their name, their gorgeous field is still very much in the center of the platinum triangle. Head down and catch a game while the summer sun is still shining. (and make sure you get yourself some helmet nachos!)
Presenting acts like Bob Dylan, B.B. King, Julio Iglesias, Boz Scaggs, Merle Haggard, George Lopez, Jamie Foxx, Seal, and Ice Cube (just to name a few), the City National Grove of Anaheim is your go-to venue for live music in the Platinum Triangle. And with a capacity of 1,700 seats, the Grove manages to strike a unique balance between that big concert atmosphere and the intimacy of a smaller club.
Noble Ale Works
The craft-beer boom is indeed booming in the Platinum Triangle. Located next to the Honda center and just a stone’s throw from Angel Stadium, this local brewery offers a tasting room that features twenty draught beer faucets, a wall-projected screen, a 48″ lcd tv, and an up-close-and-personal look at the inner-workings of the brewing process. PRO TIP: They also offer free parking for games and events at Angel Stadium and the Honda Center, so stop in to sample some suds before the game and avoid those crazy parking fees.
Golden Road Brewery
We told you it was booming… Whether you’re pre-gaming, or stopping by for a bite after an Angels win, this sprawling restaurant and beer-garden right across from Angel Stadium has exactly what you’re looking for. The pub features 40 taps of the local brewery’s innovative creations, while the kitchen turns out a mouthwatering selection of tasty bites to complement their tasty brews. We recommend the ‘GRB Burger’ which includes aged white cheddar, sun-dried tomato, caramelized onion, bacon, and a delicious remoulade sauce on a sesame seed brioche bun.
If you’re on the hunt for a new place to live in the Anaheim/Orange County Area, the Platinum Triangle offers fun, entertainment, and easy access to the rest of the city. But this list is just the very tip of the iceberg. We invite you to do some exploring and see for yourself what makes the Platinum Triangle one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the area!
