Absolutely incredible facility! Beautiful! An excellent facility for a concert or symphony! A feast for the eyes! Only drawback was the security and such - extremely strict and not inviting at all... employees definitely not trained to make you feel welcome. Bar/Etc. was quite expensive...More

I have been to many performances at the Winspear. There are dozens of concerts throughout the year put on by the ESO with a wide variety of guests, repertoire, and appeal.

The Concert was very good and the supplemental food and beverage services in the lobbies all appeared good. Only enjoyed the coffee stations and the quality was as expected.
