The Hollywood Bowl – Music beneath the stars

The Hollywood Bowl is my favorite summer concert venue. It’s an outdoor arena that can seat up to 17,376 people yet somehow manages to feel cozy. Perhaps the benches and picnic tables have something to do with it! I love this place because they allow you to bring your own food and wine, so any concert feels like the perfect picnic in the park that just happens to have a guest appearance by your favorite musician! I try to catch the concerts that play in August because the weather is warm and stays that way throughout the evening. 

The acoustics are great, and the stage is big enough to see even if you have the last seat in the house. There is a perfect view of the hills and Hollywood Sign in the distance, and lighting really adds to the atmosphere as well. It’s a fun venue to go to for date night or with a group of friends. They also have a family friendly shows that run throughout the year.
