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.

The Fonda is a classic Hollywood venue. It's a mid-size venue that still feels pretty intimate even when packed and the drinks aren't too expensive. Parking is a huge issue, as with most things in Los Angeles, but can be resolved by either paying an insane fee at one of the lots nearby or carpooling.
Great place to see your favorite artist do their thing! Zakk Wylde was amazing on stage & in the crowd at this classic concert venue this August.
