Free Jazz Nights Begin at Hollywood & Highland

Good sounds, a famous corner, and Tuesday evening magic? It's on.

What to Know

  • Five summer Tuesdays
  • July 9 kick-off
  • Complimentary admission; $14 donation, which helps Project Angel Food, is good for a cheese and fruit plate and two drink tickets

A Sweet Sixteen celebration?

We might instantly think of particular party favors and iconic foods and music choices and all of the items that festoon such a festivity.

But long-lasting, liked-by-many events can also reach the sixteen-year point, and while they may not have some of the hallmarks of a bash thrown for a human, they do have the ability to please many humans in one fabulous fell swoop.

Take Subaru Summer Jazz Nights, a staple seen — and heard — in the Central Courtyard of Hollywood & Highland come July and August. It's the 16th annual year for this free treasure, which invites people to stop by and wind down as the beginning of the week melds into the middle.

And it will do so again, over five Tuesday nights, beginning on July 9 at 7 o'clock. 

For sure, this is a complimentary, so there's no money required to attend, but if you make a $14 donation, which goes to help Project Angel Food, you'll be presented with a cheese & fruit plate, as well as two drink tickets.
