The official after-party of the Academy Awards, the Governors Ball, is held at the Hollywood & Highland Center. The after-party consistently draws a crowd of A-list award winners like Natalie Portman, Meryl Streep and Morgan Freeman. The shopping, dining and entertainment center includes a 19,000 square-foot outdoor courtyard and a variety of indoor and outdoor event spaces. The 25,000 square-foot Ray Dolby Ballroom, home to the Governors Ball, can host up to 2,400 guests. Other popular event locations at the center include Lucky Strike Lanes Hollywood, a chic bowling alley, and TCL Chinese Theatre.

The Loews Hollywood Hotel, located in the Hollywood & Highland Center, is the official hotel of the Academy Awards. The Energy Star-certified hotel offers 65,000 square feet of meeting space, including a Grand Ballroom able to seat 2,000 guests, 11 breakout meeting rooms and exhibition space.

The Hollywood Roosevelt features unique and historic venues for private parties, events, and meetings for groups from fifteen to fifteen hundred, including the iconic Blossom Room, where the first Academy Awards took place.
