Excellent place to watch the planes land at LAX and have a drink at the bar or a quick bite from several good venders Lot of construction going on in the area but inside was quiet and clean.

The ambiance of The Proud Bird Food Bazaar & Events Center is spectacular! I loved the educational aspects - the sense of history - mixed with the views of planes landing just outside the bar.
