What's the surrounding area like?

With its location in Hollywood there are plenty of bars and restaurants a short distance from the venue.

From many seats within the Bowl, you'll enjoy both an epic stage view and a backdrop of the hills behind.

How can I spend a day in LA before heading to the concert?

If you plan to spend the day in LA before heading to your concert, you'll be spoilt for choice for things to do.

The Hollywood Sign

Very much a "must do," for those visiting the city is grabbing a photo of the infamous Hollywood Sign. You cannot get right up to the sign, which is fenced off and monitored by security cameras, but you can catch a great glimpse and get your simply-must-share-on-Instagram photos from a number of places around the city. Walking around taking pictures won't cost a thing.

Hollywood Walk of Fame

A walk on the sidewalks of the 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and 3 blocks of Vine Street embedded with some 2,500 stars is a must do. Find your favorite stars, take photos and take in the sights of Hollywood at the same time.

Griffith Observatory

The Griffith Observatory hosts regular space related exhibits and offers visitors the chance to take in the cosmos through some impressive telescopes. Admission is free, unless you want to take in a show in the incredible planetarium, which costs $7.

Where are the best places to eat and drink near Hollywood Bowl?

25 Degrees

This is the spot if what you want is a killer combination of cocktails and burgers before your concert at the bowl. 25 degrees is open 24 hours a day and boasts a mouth-watering, gut-busting burger menu.

Frolic Room

Frolic Room offers up reasonably priced drinks, a laid back atmosphere and a more chilled out vibe than some of the "trendier" spots in Hollywood. You can grab a bite to eat here too.

The Spare Room Bar

Located in Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel, the Spare Room bar is a cocktail lounge and gaming parlor offering up an excellent drinks menu along with bowling, board games and other games.

Is there anything else visitors to LA should know?

The subtropical climate of LA means temperatures are typically moderate to warm. However, a microclimate in play in the city means that temperatures can vary by up to 36 degrees between coastal and inland areas, so pack accordingly!

What's the best way to get to the Hollywood Bowl?

You can travel to the Bowl by Metro. The 156 Local from San Fernando Valley or LA and the 222 Local from West Hills, Burbank and Hollywood will both get you to your event. With your Metro TAP card you can also transfer to some of the Bowl Shuttle services free of charge.

Shuttle services operate from several parts of the city and there's also a park and ride scheme that costs $7 per person for a round trip when booked in advance.

Unfortunately, if you want to drive to the Bowl, you'll spend more time stuck in traffic than actually driving.

How much is food and drink in Hollywood Bowl?

Parking lots and some picnic areas open 4 hours in advance of the event start time.

Any other important information I should know?

You're also not allowed to take drones, umbrellas or cameras with detachable lenses into the venue.

Disliked: Could not bring our own wine.

It was an absolutely beautiful, perfect evening with a huge moon shining on us. What could be better than the largest natural amphitheater in our country, fabulous entertainment on a gorgeous night? Nothing, and it can only occur at the Hollywood Bowl in October, or any other time of the year you happen to be there.

Liked: We were sitting in the POOL area of the bowl and felt as thought we were in the show, we were so close to the performers.
Disliked: The two girls who moved from seats behind us to seats directly in front of us. They never sat down down for a second during the entire concert!

Went to see Motley Crue Final Tour. The sound engineer needs some training bad. I've been to a few concerts at the bowl and the sound at this one was far inferior. Overall it was a blast and I would highly recommend the bowl as a concert venue. Be prepared for some hill walking though.

Liked: Everything else.
Disliked: Sound engineering was poor.

We had such fun and met so many new friends at the Bowl!

Liked: Beautiful event put on by our wonderful boss Hugh Hefner!
Disliked: Seats for group of Playboy Bunnies was not very good - we'd like to get better seats next year - we could not see stage.

It was my first time at the Hollywood Bowl and I was fortunate to see Barbra Streisand. She puts on a fantastic concert with great guests including her son and sister - and the Bowl was the place to see her. Enjoyed it all and the shuttle was definitely the way to go!

Liked: Awesome concert with great acoustics.

Getting to the concert and leaving was terrible, there seemed to be a lack of experience in traffic control. Lack of taxi's to take you home, they seem to only be interested in long trip customers and not very friendly.

Liked: Rod Stewart was GREAT
Disliked: Traffic coming and going was BAD
