Visited last night for the New Years Eve party after being told by the organizers it would be a dressed up evening with all night buffet and cash bar. When paying $75 per person one would expect a certain level of 'fancy'. Boy was I wrong. The food was basically some bread and antipasto (very scarce) with some pasta coming... More

I usually go the Pearl for the jazz which is always fabulous. They get some of the best jazz people around. And of course with the great acoustics of the room it is great. Very comfortable from chairs to sofas. They serve coffee and pop and pastries.Plays are also staged here. Very reasonable entry fare. Get on their mailing list... More

This is a hidden little gem in Hamilton. It is an arts center that offers shows, art exhibits, readings, etc. in a unique setting. The hosts are welcoming and friendly and ready to talk about what is happening in the venue. The building itself is worth visiting even if you are not taking in a show. It was built as... More

Every show we've seen at the Pearl has been fantastic. It's also just a cool place to explore around in--very cool space!

We have visited this great art place many times, the seating is unusual, the bands are exceptional, the coffee (not licensed) is free trade and the cookies are home baked.

PLEASE do yourself a favour, google THE PEARL COMPANY, and pick a venue to go to. You will not be disappointed in the least. They have something for everyone at one time or another....take a friend for a birthday, anniversary or just because.....it is worth every minute and every penny spent.....

This art gallery and theatre on Steven Street offers a variety of different things in the arts. I saw The Full Bawdy Comedy Show starring Shelley Marshall and though it is a pretty good size space, it felt very intimate. Super friendly volunteer staff were eager to assist me, and the owners are wonderful (their loft is on the third... More

Watched a couple of superb actors (Dean Hollin and friend) in Billy Bishop Goes to War last night. Well done, bravo! 5 stars ! Pity the venue was not up to par, even with fascinating artwork on the walls. 0 stars ! Needs a couple days of elbow grease to clean up, de-clutter and especially de-moth. The large messy room...
