Attended private function here recently. Theatre seating on multiple levels and great sight lines from either side of audience. Tremendous weekday traffic so plan ahead to avoid delays. Nice view of green space and skyline across from Center.

They share a parking lot (and parking lot entrances) - very convenient. Both facilities are well maintained, the Long Center could have used at least 1-2 more elevators or larger capacity elevators. Acoustics are great, seats could be a bit more comfortable though.

Attended a concert here recently, and this venue was an added "perk" to the evening. On the site of the old Palmer Auditorium, and repurposed many materials from that building in constructing this one. The acoustics of Dell Hall are excellent, the layout is convenient...More

The auditorium is often kept far too warm for the amount of people inside and the seating is not comfortable and way too close together

Saw La Traviata this past week, seats 103 and 104 Orchestra. Fantastic acoustics and not one bad seat in the place. I’ve attended musicals and opera in Los Angeles and on Broadway so I steeled myself for, basically, a regional performance maybe a couple steps...More

The Long Center is one of the premier theatre facilities in Austin hosting a wide variety of performances. Located in heart of downtown on the southern banks of Lady Bird Lake it surely stands out. It shares a large parking garage with Palmer Events Center...More
