Hollywood Bowl Concessions

MATT has just completed work on a new concessions stand at the Hollywood Bowl, designed by Callas Architects.  With improvements that date back to MATT’s reconstruction of the Hollywood Bowl shell in 2004, the LA Phil’s goal has been to accommodate state-of-the-art improvements to the Bowl, while maintaining the historic, architectural, and cultural integrity of the site.

The Outdoor Bar and Popcorn Stand was a fast-track, 28 week project.  The existing popcorn stand and service ramp was an underutilized area at one of the most heavily trafficked entrances at the East Gate.  The construction of the new Popcorn Stand at ground level, and deck level Outdoor Bar took place during the off season and opened at the start of the summer season.
