I can't believe this was my first time here, but glad I finally got a chance to go. Found the experience overall pretty good. We received wristbands upon entering and quickly got my named checked off on the will call list before entering. We arrived fairly early so the place was pretty sparsely filled.

I LOVE the intimate setting of this place. I love that you get to be so close to the artists that you can see their fingers doing their magic on their instruments, but if you want to "chill" in the upstairs lounge on comfy chairs/couches, that's an option too.

The Cabooze is a great venue for music and cheap drinks (although the drinks are a bit easy on the alcohol). Definitely a rocker vibe- no suits and scotches here. Restrooms were clean and everyone that worked there was friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend and will return. Super close to the light rail. Very convenient.

We're big fans of live music and we LOVE rock and roll. So when we heard our friends FLIPP were playing there the day after Thanksgiving it was a no brainer, we had to be there. We both thought it was a pretty good venue for a live show, bartenders were quick to serve, stage was big enough in size... More

We came down for a FM show, and due to the rain, it got "cancelled". The band actually came on the small stage inside and tore up the venue. Neat place!

Concert goers were left outside in thunderstorm with no announcements as to what was happening with concert. Not cool!

I can honestly say my hubby and I had great time at this establishment. I even had a moment where i fainted due to dehydration. The staff there was more then helpful, one lady in particular got me a burger. Thanks for making our experience fun and safe!

We saw Needtobreathe and Switchfoot. We couldn't have asked for a nicer summer night. The sound was great and the beer was cold. We were told it was sold out with a crowd of 4,000 and We didn't find it crowded. We stayed at the courtyard Marriott down the street so were within walking distance. Price is right too! Be... More

Thanks for the great show! The staff was on their game and it was a packed show. Outside with plenty of places to get refreshments. We had to park like 5 blocks away but the walk wasn't bad! The music sounded great! Thanks for the fun time!!

Its been years (decades) since I have visited the Cabooze night club and it felt like an old friend. I took in the "Tribute to Lowell George feat: The New Orleans Suspects & Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett of Little Feat" on Saturday night and was impressed. We could get right close to the band members so it allowed me... More
