Since its opening in 1922, the Hollywood Bowl has been the premier destination for live music in Southern California, serving as the summer home of the LA Philharmonic under the iconic silhouette of its concentric-arched band shell.

“Securing this long-term partnership and commitment will ensure we continue the time-honored tradition of premier picnicking and dining at the Bowl, while also providing concert-goers with enhanced choices and a commitment to quality ingredients and menu choices,” said Laura Connelly, General Manager, Hollywood Bowl.

“We know the future is bright for the Food + Wine program,

and we look forward to continue working alongside Sodexo Live!

and the Lucques Group.”

Dining at the Bowl

The Hollywood Bowl Food + Wine team is a vital part of the Bowl’s in-person gastronomic experience, which includes:

  • Pre-order box seat dinners or picnic boxes to enjoy in the Bowl’s beautiful picnic areas

  • Mobile ordering available from anywhere at the entirely cash-free venue

  • On-site marketplaces that feature a wide selection of options to build the perfect picnic, including plentiful beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages

  • The South LA Cafe which serves coffee and more in the Plaza Marketplace

  • Street Food stands that serve a range of offerings from LA’s diverse foodscape, including tacos, all-beef hotdogs, vegetarian and vegan friendly fare, Magpie’s softserve, pizza, burgers, BBQ, popcorn, and more

Full-Service Restaurants

The Bowl also features three beautiful restaurants to enjoy a sit-down meal brought to life by Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne.

Ann’s Wine Bar: Inspired by Suzanne and Caroline’s local a.o.c restaurant. Ann’s Wine Bar features a wide selection of Caroline’s favorite new- and old-world wines, all paired with Suzanne’s signature small-plates menu and a.o.c favorites.

the backyard: Two giant wood-burning grills are the focus of this farmers’ market-driven restaurant featuring grilled fish, chop, steaks, and plenty of vegetables.

Lucques at the Circle: This exclusive fine-dining experience is for Pool Circle ticket holders, with a seasonal three course, prix fixe menu and exceptional wine list styled from Suzanne and Caroline’s award-winning first restaurant Lucques.

Green Initiatives

Further, to affirm the Hollywood Bowl as one of the World’s Great Natural Amphitheaters and a leader in sustainable business practices, the Food + Wine program commits to: using 100% biodegradable food-service items, pledging to source a high amount of food from local vendors and farmers, donating excess food to community food banks and diverting food waste from the landfill and into compost instead.

About the Hollywood Bowl

One of the largest natural amphitheaters in the world, with a seating capacity of nearly 18,000, the Hollywood Bowl has been the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic since its official opening in 1922 and plays host to the finest artists from all genres of music. For a century, the Bowl has been a Los Angeles County public park, operated in collaboration with the LA Phil to welcome visitors from all over the world. It remains one of the best deals anywhere in Los Angeles; to this day, $1 buys a seat at the top of the Bowl for many classical and jazz performances. This past February, the Hollywood Bowl was also awarded the Outdoor Concert Venue of the Year award at the 35th Annual Pollstar Awards, an honor bestowed 16 previous times, as well as Top Amphitheater prize at the 2017 and 2018 Billboard Touring Awards.

For millions of music lovers across Southern California, the Hollywood Bowl is synonymous with summer. hollywoodbowl.com
