About 10-12 years ago this place was a pretty good venue but they don't maintain it at all. First off the sound is complete trash now - no matter who is playing. Went to see Portishead, Janes Addiction, QOTSA, among others I have seen at...More

I went yesterday to see one of my favorite artist. I go to standing room only venues all the time and this was by far the best one I’ve been to. I was in the front row and the security took care of us. They...More

I took three girls ages 13, 14 and 15 to see Dua Lipa and it was a little too much for them. I didn't realize they'd be selling alcohol. Also, the crowd was more "adult" than I expected. That may speak more to the artist...More

saw Flogging Molly here a few times and have to say was plenty big enough, good sound, lots of bars to get us drunk and had a great time while there

Depending on the show, the whole ground floor is general admission and they also have a balcony which you must buy a separate ticket for I believe.
