The Bowl continues to be a world-class performance venue and still a very LA experience!. Recently went to a Wednesday night Jazz performance and, even though I have been in the past and expected great things, was still impressed yet again. If you visit or live in LA, the Bowl is not to be missed. There are no bad seats... More

This is our second Hollywood Bowl summer season after many years of attending one or two concerts a year. and this year we upgraded to the terrace box seats. These are wooden partitioned seats - 4 canvas chairs (which collapse for storage) and two 20' x 20' dinner tables. There are also 5 and 6 seat boxes and several suggested... More

I loved the fact that we could see the Hollywood sign from our seats. The concert was fantastic. The fireworks were superb! We brought our own wine and food into the venue. We rented seat pads for a very low price. Everyone was very nice.

I have been going to the bowl for two decades now. It just doesn't seem like summer without a few trips with family and friends. I love bringing people from out of town as they love it too! The bowl is a beautiful amphitheatre with a very relaxed crowd. I love being able to bring in picnic/wine and just relax.... More

Each year, the Hollywood Bowl has little improvements. The bathrooms have been upgraded along with the picnic areas. New bench seats and higher quality food venues. Be aware that this is a very difficult venue if you are handicapped. Try to purchase handicapped parking when you purchase your tickets. 2 of the escalators were not operating both times I went...

Family vacation in Los Angeles area, and decided to do something unique. Visiting the Hollywood Bowl instantly became a destination. Planning to visit is a little tricky, as you can’t drive there (very little parking), so need to also buy tickets for one of many shuttle spots. We visited on a Saturday evening when Los Angeles Symphony was playing, with... More

Great acoustics, weather was perfect! couldn't ask for a better evening and it was close to the Magic Castle Hotel so we could just walk back and not get stuck in the traffic after the concert!

We saw Gladys Knight here recently. I don't understand the comments about it being tricky to get to. We caught the metro to Hollywood Highland station, then got the shuttle bus which leaves from Orange Plaza ....easy as. It drops you rights at the entrance. Free if you have a TAP card (public transport card) It's also not difficult to... More

The Hollywood bowl located in Hollywood California is a super cool venue to see a concert. I came to see Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy perform for his 50th anniversary. I was not disappointed, special guests included Jan Hammer, Steven Tyler, Billy Gibbons, etc. If you have never been to concert there I suggest you make it a priority to... More
