Stopped to see the Bowl and the Museum while in Hollywood. Neat to walk around and see the venue and realize they many people who have performed here. Museum had a Beatles tribute which was nice.

We went here for the 4th July celebration (although we went on 3rd). Acoustics are very good but I think everyone knows that. Really nice atmosphere. Seat were reasonably comfortable and although we were 2/3rds back we could still see the stage well. Obviously gets very busy, especially at "chucking out time". Worth a visit.

We went to the Bowl on July 4,2014. It couldn't have been better. It was the perfect setting for the 4th of July. The Philharmonic started the evening off with a patriotic theme and then Steve Martin and his Steep Canyon Rangers performed. I knew Steve could play the banjo but I had no idea how well and of course... More

We caught BIlly Joel at the HB (he's on my bucket list) and what an amazing night. Acoustics were awesome, the weather was beautiful and the drinks were overpriced. Overall a solid 4 out of 5! Be sure to get a complimentary seat cushion if you're sitting in the bleacher section. Save $$ and time by parking at Hollywood &... More

We saw the Hollywood Bowl on a city tour. Not that much to do there other than look at the stage and walk in the stalls. Just a check off my list to say I've seen it.

Really is the best venue for almost anything. Reason it always wins awards for best place to see a show. The fact that you can bring a picnic basket is a major, major plus. If a show was multiple places in LA I would see it here if given a choice

LA is very fortunate to have very little rain all year round. Just beyond the stage you can see the beautiful cliffs of Hollywood. Lovely picnic space, before the show begins. Whilst at a concert here, I was lucky to witness a short performance by Mr Barry White.

For years I've been going to the Hollywood Bowl with my family. Some years we park at the Bowl (stack parking, ick!), some years we get there super early and picnic, and some years we eat at our seats. Regardless of the years, we've always sat in the "cheap seats" which really aren't that cheap (usually about $50-75 a pop... More

Loved this place it was amazing to see and an amazing place to be. If you didn't want to see a show you could picnic in the bowl and visit the museum for free. Traffic into this place is manic but well worth it
