We held a birthday party for my wife in the Speakeasy section of the Hippodrome. Ron and the staff made it a great day. They delivered a great experience for all of our guest and stayed within the agreed budget. We did a Sunday brunch event. The food was excellent. The bar tender kept the drinks flowing. The disk jockey... More

This has to be the easiest place around to host an event! It is truly a one stop shop...bars, food, lighting, sound system, professional staff and beautiful decor...all under one roof!

OK, that's not all because of the venue, but the theatre certainly provided a very nice background for a great wedding, with the ceremony, the drinks, the food, the dancing all in one place.

My wife and I saw jazz saxophonist, Paul Taylor and the atmosphere was very good. The sound and acoustics were pretty good along with the food (if you chose to eat). The only downside to the food was that I think it was a little over priced. Other than that, my wife and I had a great time and we... More

This is a very pretty refurbished old theater. Beautiful chandelier and decor. Unfortunately, not in a great part of town and no parking other than street parking.
