Rooftop bar has 270 degree views of Downtown, fried chicken skins and decent burgers. Drinks are pricey, but it is a venue after all. Theater is intimate but seating tends to get uncomfortable after an hour or so.

Staff , including manager Drew, were very attentive in helping the parents set up and especially breaking down. Bartenders were great. Lighting specialist was very attentive to the special occasion. For a large frequently used venue, the bathrooms were clean.

Really any concert that they have will be a good one if you have an open mind. Be prepared to stand, maybe dance. There is no inside seating. Go to the bar on top of the building and meet the locals. Have some fun.
