First off, a bottle of water was only 2 dollars which quite cheap compared to other places I have been. The stage is definitely smaller in depth, consequentially the band is right in front of you!!! The staff was friendly, and even though my name...More

I found this to be a very good concert venue. A perfect small venue; large enough to actually feel like a concert venue and not just a bar. They have two stages, one is smaller for warm up acts and then a main stage. The...More

More of a bar than a music hall. Small name bands, mostly rock--younger clientele the majority of time (early twenties) There is a nice downtown location. Chances are you will be paying to park and there is generally an entrance fee.

This converted historic warehouse is a decent venue for musical acts where there are 500-800 expected attendees. That would be bigger than a standard bar but too small for the Auditorium Theatre or War Memorial. A wide variety of music styles are represented with live...More
