The Hollywood Bowl is a beautiful place to listen to music ..I have been a member for years, and have enjoyed many artists who have been inducted into the music Hall of Fame . There are box seats that are close to the stage , which are nice to enjoy dinner, great places to buy dinner or cheese and wines,... More

The Hollywood Bowl is a true Los Angeles icon for great music during the summer season. It's the summer home for the Los Angeles Philharmonic but don't miss the great rock concert special events as well as a solid jazz lineup.

I have been to many shows here over the years and I'm always happy to come here. I live in a Hawaii now. So I don't come here like I used to. The last time I... More

First time at the Hollywood Bowl. Fantastic experience. Nice big video screens so you can still see even if sitting back a bit. Some things to know about - pay $1 for a seat cushion rental - your backside will be happy. That's for the wooden bench seats. Some of the seats closer in the middle have real chairs and... More

Now the next time you hear that Los Angeles is a cultural wasteland, You can rebut this by mentioning the Bowl. I have been there several times and have always come away as one happy camper. As this place always has it act together. The acoustics have been vastly impressed. That and the problems with parking have been taken in... More

There is little more pleasant than an evening at the Hollywood Bowl. The beautifully restored amphitheater has nothing but good seats, and seeing a concert under the stars is simply the best, whether you like symphonies, bands, or something in between. Great programming too.

You go to the "Hollybowl" because it is an iconic music venue, not for the museum. As a venue it does not disappoint. Come early, bring/rent a seat pad, picnic at your seat, and then enjoy the music---- a very civilized way to enjoy an outdoor concert. There are no bad seats, although there are some seats more conducive to... More

I was a little disappointed by the smallness of the museum, as I thought there would be plenty of history to cover. However, visiting the Hollywood Bowl itself has always been a dream of mine – after seeing it in so many Hollywood movies – and it didn't disappoint. The views of the hills and the Hollywood sign are superb, and... More
