Hollywood Bowl dining options

For the first time in years (decades actually) I will be going to the Bowl for a concert and have been given box seats with a special friend. What suggestions are there for bring in, eat there, or ??

  1. Make sure you check the rules for whatever event you're attending. They're different for the Bowl's own even (like the L A Phil in the summer) than they are for events that just use the Bowl as a venue. For the "official" events, you can bring wine and food. I think there are more limitations for the other events. I'm sure it's all on their website. I know of friends who assumed they could bring wine to an event, and had to buy it there.

    1. Mozza 2 Go is my favorite for the Bowl.

      1. Here is a link from last year that may help:

        And these are the rules for lease events such as Coldplay & The Beach Boys (non L A Phil) at the Bowl: They are different rules than for regular Bowl events.

        NOT Permissible in the Theatre during Lease Events:
        Alcohol and/or controlled substances. You may purchase alcohol inside.
        Glass (including drinking glasses) and aluminum cans, regardless of content.

        The following are allowable in the Bowl:
        Picnic baskets and coolers no larger than 15" by 22" long by 15" high.
        Factory sealed non-alcoholic plastic bottles, one liter in size or less.
        Re-useable containers (such as Tupperware or sipper bottles) holding food or non-alcoholic beverages.

        1. If you want to eat there, Patina does table service for the boxes. It's decent.
