Welcome to The Centurion Suite by American Express, our refreshed and revamped suite under a new name. It is a perfect place to enhance your next visit to STAPLES Center as a Platinum Card® or Centurion® Member.

This VIP space offers a full service bar with a complete selection of finely crafted cocktails, beer & wine, and an array of non-alcoholic beverages for purchase. Guests can also purchase and order premium food items from the bar.

Feel free to take advantage of The Centurion Suite's high top table, bar, or lounge seating, available on a first come, first served basis. Then enjoy an exclusive view of the game or watch it on one of the Suite's flat screen TVs.


The Centurion Suite is conveniently located on Suite Level B. After entering STAPLES Center from any main entrance, Card Members can proceed to the Centurion Suite check-in, located on the Main Concourse across from aisle M22 (next to the Team LA Store).

Here, a Guest Services Team Member will assist in checking in all Card Members on a first-come, first-served basis until The Centurion Suite has reached maximum capacity.

Once you've been checked in, simply take the stairs or the elevator to Suite Level B. If taking the elevator, The Centurion Suite will be located through the brown double doors to your right once you reach Suite Level B. Otherwise, proceed to your left at the top of the stairs. The entrance to The Centurion Suite will be located on your right hand side.


The Centurion Suite at STAPLES Center will be open for most Los Angeles Kings, Los Angeles Lakers, and Los Angeles Clippers home games throughout the year.

The Centurion Suite opens 90 minutes prior to the beginning of the game when general doors open, so be sure to check in as soon as possible, as space is limited. The Centurion Suite will close immediately following the conclusion of the event.

To check in you will be required to show your valid American Express Platinum or Centurion Card along with a photo ID.  You will receive a wristband that will grant you access and re-entry into The Centurion Suite throughout the evening.

Platinum Card and Centurion Members are permitted up to (3) guests per Platinum or Centurion Card (subject to availability and capacity), and guests must be present upon check in.


For additional questions or assistance, please access our guest services information page.
