We went and saw The Devil Wears Prada here and it was awesome :) Small venue with a balcony and 2 bars. The speakers were loud and the floor was big enough for the crazy and excited crowd. There were some hand rails around the...More

I attended the Jessie Reyes concert and felt secure in knowing there was security throughout the venue. A young man and girl standing behind me were visibly high on pills and incredibly intoxicated. I was at a concert venue and therefore am well aware that...More

I really love the layout and vibe of this place. It's a grungy old concert venue. It's a bit dirty and not well kept, but that's part of the appeal for places like this. There's plenty of space, even at a sold out show you...More

Smoking is allowed, so that may be a turn off for many (myself included). While it is a club, even if you go upstairs, you have to shout to hear your neighbor. The music is very hit or miss for dancing. While the "all you...More

It's a dive bar, but it's our favorite bar in Tampa. They serve Fat Tire along with the usual mass produced favorites - Could get five stars if they sold Guinness. It's tiny, old and not laid out well at all, but they have one...More

I don't have much to add from the other reviews here but agree with them. The place is a pretty basic, no frills site for general admission concerts. No real tables for couples, nor booths for groups but if you and a couple friends want...More
