Five stars for the venue, and its history. Minus one for the traffic it causes for miles in every direction, and minus another for how much you'll pay to park anywhere nearby. Los Angeles unfortunately did not have the foresight to put this mega attraction on the subway line. This said if you play it right there are some event... More

Lovely surrounding with picnic atmosphere. It's also like a concert in the park but with seats. Great for the Neil Diamond we went to.

This beloved in Hollywood is for the overall experience, rather than listening to good music. The acoustics aren't good and if you're driving there add another hour at least to your experience time. Walk or get a car service.

Parking!!! We knew about the stacked parking so we did the park and ride at Hollywood and highland. Park further away! It still took us two hours to get out of that mess on a Friday night Halloween weekend. The event was amazing, we saw the nightmare before Christmas to a live orchestra. We were literally in the last row... More

THIS PAGE IS SUPPOSE TO BE REVIEWS OF THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL MUSEUM, NOT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL IN GENERAL. That said I made a special stop here just to see the museum. There is really nothing to see. It is very small with a very few displays and I was there about 15 minutes and saw everything. The upstairs had virtually... More

The Hollywood Bowl has been on my list for many years. It has been in so many films, television shows and photos. It is huge and the particular concert was a must-see, sold-out show.

Went in the 13th October to see van Morrison and tom jones in concert. Fabulous venue. Paid for better seats and this was worth it. Parking very difficult and park and ride fully booked. Ended up getting Uber car to get us there. Bit of a walk to get into the bowl. Take something warm to wear as it is... More

if you are a fan of the Bowl, seeing its historical development could be of interest. It was for me. it is relatively small but then again devoted to one singular venue. Tour guide knew her stuff
