The Fonda Theatre

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
A smoke break doesn’t mean that you’ll miss the show at Hollywood's the Fonda Theatre (formerly the Music Box), where not only is the music hooked up to the rooftop "speakeasy," but the live on-stage performance is projected on the exterior wall. Unfortunately, you do have to buy tickets to the gig to gain entrance, but the prime perch—lounge on one of the scattered sofas on the outdoor patio—from the historic Spanish Revival-style building offers an unobstructed view of Hollywood as you listen to indie faves like Alt-J and the Alabama Shakes. Throw back a brewski and gaze down the boulevard as you channel your inner Dracula, first performed on the Fonda stage in 1930. Or, you know, watch the concert inside—that's also good.
