The major issue with the venue is lack of seating. There is a small board about 4 inches wide that lines the balconies. They push bar stools up to them. This is the ONLY seating. Most people have to stand. This is a problem unless...More

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.

This venue hosts world famous artists. It was rebuilt after a fire that gutted the place some years ago. It's really nice inside with three levels and bars. Seating is limited. Also be sure to check out the roof top bar.

The rooftop bar has great views, ordinary drinks, and great food. Specifically, their chili cheese fries are good, but the best thing is their white chicken sandwich, it's amazing.

No idea. I would suggest looking on the GA Theater website, and if you are looking for what else is happening in Athens on that date look at the Athens Chamber of Commerce website or just Google what's going on then. Hope... More
