Lovely old buildings but in need of a lot of tlc. Very intimate but good sounds. Seating comfortable, views reasonable. Access could be better. Difficult if using crutches or wheelchair.

Lovely building great to see artists and shows. Smaller than the arena but much more atmospher. There is a bar in the lower level which is in much need of refurbishment and highly inflated prices.

First time there tonight seeing Ricky Gervais, great venue! I don't think there's a bad place to sit because the venue us quite small so every place has a good view. Thinking about going to see Russell Brand in December now that I've been there!...More

Went to see Bowiemania on Saturday night. Fantastic show but a bit disapointed by the venue. I realise City Hall is an old building but that is no excuse for very poor facilities. The bars were basement level as were the toilets and the stench...More

I think Row M in the stalls as there is absolutely loads of leg room. Defo not front row balcony. Check the seating plan tho first before you book.
