The layout is long and narrow toward the stage due to the goal of the ocean as a stage backdrop. Lousy lineups.

Shalin Liu concert hall. The most advanced acoustics anywhere. Anyone, any band sounds better here in this fabulous concert hall.

Beautiful venue! Great location on the water. Great views. Excellent acoustics. Diverse, eclectic programs including classical, folk, jazz and blues. Nice upstairs lounge. Restaurants within walking distance but only during the "summer" season.

No other venue like this. World class acoustics and view behind stage. Many varieties of performances. Well worth planning a destination visit around the performance of your choice, and eating and staying local, all walkable also.

Phenomenal venue to hear a concert. Recently heard a jazz concert with great acoustics. It's also a beautiful setting if you are there for late afternoon or early evening the light coming in is amazing.

Relatively small, it only seats a little over 300 people. It's perfect for a small performance group, or an individual recital. Behind the stage is a floor to ceiling glass window. Spectacular! We sat in the last 3 rows and found it to be like...More
