  • Simply the Best venue in the summer. I've seen most of my favorite bands here. It's great because you can bring in food and alcohol and have a picnic before the show. The sound is great where ever you...  more »

  • A very nice theater with spectacular views of the hills and the Hollywood sign. On some events, it's a very free and open place where you can drink alcohol and even smoke. Although, I really think they should replace the wooden benches you sit on with something more convenient, but thankfully, the seat cushions go for only $1. The parking method here is also quite a nightmare.
  • I know a lot of people complain about the traffic and parking, but that's a problem with any concert venue. Honestly, the Bowl has one of the best methods for parking quickly (yes, it's stacked but that's the price to pay), plus, their shuttle service and Park-n-Ride system are great. I only use their shuttle from the Zoo, and it's so easy. The venue itself is beautiful, fun, open, and makes for a wonderful experience.
  • The venue is beautiful, the location is beautiful, staff is very friendly and informed. The whole thing is organizing very well, but definitely arrive about 2 hours early, or at Lee leeeast 1.5 hours. Parking is insane. Do not park at the Hollywood Bowl. Park somewhere a mile a way, and then walk there. Parking will be cheaper, and quicker. It can take hours to get out of the venue. Other than that, this was great, and I had an awesome time!!
  • A historical and classic outdoor venue. For popular and sold or events it is not recommended parking on location. It is a mad house and you have to wait for all cars I'm front of you to leave before you can move. Multiple local shuttles or park and ride from nearby cities available and recommended. One of the coolest things is that you can bring your own food and drinks for picnic or partying on site!
  • Really cool venue. Beautiful view. Lots of concession choices. Bathrooms easily accessible. Parking sucks because it's stacked parking, so at the end of the night you need to wait for those in front of you to pull out. Otherwise, really enjoyed it.

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
