Can’t beat a night under the stars with music; if only they could improve the parking.

I have done the Bowl in boxes, with great food and wines, and in the bleachers (also with great food and wines); classical, rock concerts and jazz. Although I prefer the better... read more

I have done the Bowl in boxes, with great food and wines, and in the bleachers (also with great food and wines); classical, rock concerts and jazz. Although I prefer the better seats for the shows that are more my musical taste, all are amazing, and you can't beat a night at the Bowl. I hate the parking, especially having... More

Since this review category seems to allow only for the Hollywood Bowl's museum, I'll start with that. The museum itself is really not much, but certainly worth a visit if you're going to the Hollywood Bowl for a concert, anyway. It's small and not exactly comprehensive, but it does give you a history of this historic concert venue. That being... More

Every seat seems to have a good view of the stage and tickets were a great price. Love the Bugs Bunny at the Symphony - what a wonderful concept! Plenty of guides to get you in the right direction to your seat and plenty of great food options.

Traffic coming and going is a mess, take one of the Bowl shuttles. Get there at least an hour before the show. Bring a picnic, something easy....sandwiches, chips, fruit, and of course wine! You might not find a picnic table, but you can eat in your seats. If you can, go directly to the Bowl to purchase your tickets...well worth... More

The Museum is near the entrance of the Hollywood Bowl. If you're going to an event at the Bowl, this is worth a visit. You can see everything in about 30 mins or less depending on your level of interest. The permanent exhibit provides a lot of history of the Bowl and has photos and small replicas of the various...

Somehow the museum has overshadowed the actual Bowl in this listing. I believe the Bowl dates back to the 1920's and originally served as the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Today during the summer season, the Bowl hosts classical performances on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Wednesdays are dedicated to jazz, Fridays and Saturdays are a potpourri of musical performances...

We visited this place for a concert with Gustavo Dudamel, celebrating his 10 anniversary with the L.A. philharmonic. It was an amazing experience. The bowl has great acoustics and the prices are really affordable. The picnic area is a great idea for having dinner before the concert. This is definitively one of my new favorite spots. P.S. If you park... More

Great venue for music. Just saw a version of Monty Python's Spamalot and I don't know how they did it on such a huge platform but it worked really well. Definitely bring a picnic and some wine, and sit under the stars watching stars on stage Avoid the clusterf@$!! That is parking by taking a shuttle. The buses leave and... More

Wow! Where do I start? During our summer, the Bowl is a must do (my summer Bowl attendance is between 15 - 24 concerts), and a few more Rock concerts during the year. Just about every summer concert you can get $8 (if you buy online, expect to pay $3 in service fees) tickets to sit on benches in the... More
