The Hollywood Bowl is an amphitheatre in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. It was named one of the 10 best live music venues in America by Rolling Stone magazine in 2018.Plan my day in Los Angeles using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
The Hollywood Bowl is known for its band shell, a distinctive set of concentric arches that graced the site from 1929 through 2003, before being replaced with a larger one beginning in the 2004 season. The shell is set against the backdrop of the Hollywood Hills and the famous Hollywood Sign to the northeast.
The "bowl" refers to the shape of the concave hillside the amphitheater is carved into. The Bowl is owned by the County of Los Angeles and is the home of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the host venue to hundreds of musical events each year.
It is located at 2301 North Highland Avenue, west of the (former) French Village, north of Hollywood Boulevard and the Hollywood/Highland subway station, and south of Route 101.

The Hollywood bowl is the venue to see your favorite artist!! From the location to the design of the concert hall, this place is really cool. Lines are very long, so definitely be prepared to wait. This incredibly popular venue will most likely be packed anytime, but there's still enough space. It was really cool to see some favorite artists outside here!
This is one of my favorites to just go out, dance, and have a great time. The bartenders are all smoking HOT and fast so I never have to wait too long for a drink. Sometimes I will go in to watch a game or fight and it is equally great. All in all this is a great bar/club! I would check it out if you are in Los Angeles.
