Planning Your Visit

To kick off the reopening, in May and June, we will present 4 free limited-capacity and socially distanced concerts for invited healthcare workers, first responders, and essential workers as a gesture of thanks for all they have done for Los Angeles throughout the pandemic. Beginning in July, we will present 14 weeks of concerts featuring a mixture of programming. The lineup of artists, dates and ticketing details will be announced on May 11.

 We understand that picnicking is a great part of your experience at the Bowl.

 

Picnicking

The current protocols require picnicking in your seats only. We hope to be able to provide access to the picnicking areas throughout the Hollywood Bowl grounds as County policies evolve.

 

Food & Wine

The current protocols require that there will be in-seat service and pick up, but no marketplaces will be open. In-seat will be able to be ordered both in advance and day of and will be delivered to boxes only. Benches can order day of from their mobile devices (using the Hollywood Bowl app) and pick up at either Kitchen 22 or Taco Stand. No pickup available without ordering first. No restaurant service until paid shows commence – from July onwards. Dining will be in Backyard and Ann’s Winebar and will be the same menu for both spaces. Advanced reservations are required. Restaurant seating will be socially distanced, and all Food & Wine employees will adhere to COVID protocols for restaurants, including PPE (Masks, shields, gloves). This information is subject to change as County regulations develop.
