“Excellent acoustics and experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

We saw Tchaikovskys 1812 Overture here and it was just amazing. Even though we had seats further in the back it was still an amazing experience. The parking is well organized and despite it was a big event we got a parking space not too far away. You gotta be there early enough, though, of course because since so many people fit in there it takes a while to get in there. Besides the acoustics the ambiente is also really great and you got the feeling that not the event was adapted into the superbowl but the superbowl just just added perfectly it's flair to the event. The friends who went together with us also were pretty stunned and we left very satisfied from an event we'll be sure to remember.

“Best Venue Ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

The date is wrong because we went there years ago on our best date ever. Tony Bennett was the entertainment. You can take in your own wine and beer and we had our own wine glasses (klink) It was the date of our lives which we will never forget. We stayed at a hotel within walking distance.

“Amazing Concerts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

I feel affection for the Hollywood Bowl. It's such a good-looking outside site so as to can be take pleasure in on or after any chair. Parking is, of route, a harass. If you employ their usual parking, its heap and will consequently get you everlastingly to obtain absent. I more often than not park additional downwards on Highland and just saunter up the mount. Mainly freshly I took the metro; it was expedient on the method readily available, but took method also extended on the method rear because every coach only sprints each 30 notes (and we now missed ours). An additional option would be to receive the ferry. I haven't tried it other than it seems to be beautiful suitable.

“Fun Night with Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The food is hardly the attraction but on a nice warm night with the sounds of beautiful music you will hardly notice!

“A one time experience unless money is no object”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

I have been to the Hollywood Bowl maybe 4 times in the past 10 yrs. One of the issues for me is the long walk to get into the actual line to get in and then another long walk, mainly uphill to get past the food shops and bathrooms. (the bathrooms are few and far between and at intermission it is way too crowded to make it back in time if you also stop for food. The parking is a challenge and where we sat 3/4 of the way up the concrete blocks of seats they are hard and if you have like an old seat pad to bring, you may find it a great "boost". If you aren't sitting up close about 1/3 of the way up from the stage, then you're paying a lot of money to sit and watch a giant tv screen which is still far away. I prefer smaller theatres for plays and musicals where I can actually make out the facial features of the person singing.
