The Hollywood bowl is always a good choice, with classical, jazz, blues, or world music series, no summer LA experience is complete without it. Arrive early with your dinner (bottles ok for bowl events, not for leased events) and people watch. Bring a sweater or blanket, it always cools off. Depending where you sit, you can see the Hollywood sign.... More

What do you say? Breathtaking, historic, iconic, grand, dazzling, romantic, soulful, venue. This place holds a special place in the heart of all music lovers and anyone who has a reverence for places that lift us up. This should be on everyone's bucket list.

You can't help but smile when you are at the Hollywood Bowl for a concert. A few helpful hints: Take the bus if you can. Bring a meal to avoid any long lines, but then hit the food kiosks during the show for drinks. Some seating is a bit crowded - so opt for more expensive and roomier seats. ENJOY!

Warm nights. music, wine, sweet vibe....Locals never tire of the Bowl and summertime is heaven there.Bring blankets, a picnic basket (Don't purchase...a small fortune aimed at naive non locals) . No matter where you sit, the acoustics are stellar. Purchase in advance. The seats fill up fast for the Summer season. WORTH IT!

Hollywood Bowl is unique in Los Angeles and is one of our local icons. If you are a tourist from out of town, it may be worth a visit. If you can sign up with a tour company that will take you there in a bus, feed you, and provide good seats close to the stage -- that's the way... More

If you have not seen an event in this venue then you are missing out. A natural canyon surrounds the venue and funnels the sound in amazing ways.

In between business meetings we were able to go see a concert. We have never been here and I wore 4" heels. Needless to say I was sorry immediately. It's quite a hike at least a mile, up hill, (both ways). Just kidding, but wear flats ladies.

Five stars for the venue, and its history. Minus one for the traffic it causes for miles in every direction, and minus another for how much you'll pay to park anywhere nearby. Los Angeles unfortunately did not have the foresight to put this mega attraction on the subway line. This said if you play it right there are some event... More
