This was our first time to the Altamont Theater and it is truly a great place to see someone perform. It is very intimate and all the seats are good. There is a small bar downstairs which serves almost everything you could want. You are allowed to take your drinks back upstairs to enjoy during the concert. A wonderful experience.

My wife and I were visiting Asheville and were wandering around downtown looking for a bar to go and check out and we saw a sign for a comedy show starting soon. We thought why not. It was a very intimate atmosphere which i was initially skeptical about for a comedy show but the host and two comedians were great... More

My wife and I recently stayed in The Altamont unit 301, our first trip to Asheville for our anniversary. Upon arriving late that night we found, the kitchen sink to be dirty, bed linen and pillows with hair on them, and worse…BUGS which looked like cockroaches (we killed 2-3 and more scampered behind stove and vents). We sent the owner... More

My husband and I love coming to this venue for the wide variety of music offered, the intimate environment, great downtown location, (and great beer). We were thrilled with Nolatet, a New Orleans quartet that brought fabulous New Orleans funky Jazz to this stage. We especially love the reserve seating in the First 2 rows!

Went to this place for an 8 o'clock show. Show was delayed for an hour and a half! I think this was done purposely so they could sell more alcohol. When they finally opened the doors, someone forgot to keep them unlocked so others could get in. The first act was terrible. Two girls calling themselves Brief Awakening sang pedestrian... More

We went to Deborah Hansen-Conant. The show was fantastic. The theater has open seating for about 90 folks. The bar prices were great. A nice homey place to see a performer.

Unique shows with prominent traveling and local performers. As with many such venues, the volume is to the point of endangering one's hearing.

Now back with shows almost nightly,mother do a great job. Good locals ever an full bar downstairs, general seating for shows, not large, on quiet side street off Patton Ave surrounded by local churches. No food but nice place as are within walking distance, one is the Havana restaurant just 20 steps away.

Happened onto this place on Valentine's Day after seeing posters for a Patsy Cline tribute band (The Sweet Dreamers). It's a top-notch, clean and modern venue. Intimate setting. Nice bar. Great price. The band was excellent!

Saw Deja Vu - a great Crosby Stills & Nash tribute band from Ga at the Altamont Theater. The sound was great, Can't be live music in a small setting.
