I attended the Jessie Reyes concert and felt secure in knowing there was security throughout the venue. A young man and girl standing behind me were visibly high on pills and incredibly intoxicated. I was at a concert venue and therefore am well aware that...More

I really love the layout and vibe of this place. It's a grungy old concert venue. It's a bit dirty and not well kept, but that's part of the appeal for places like this. There's plenty of space, even at a sold out show you...More

I don't have much to add from the other reviews here but agree with them. The place is a pretty basic, no frills site for general admission concerts. No real tables for couples, nor booths for groups but if you and a couple friends want...More

I had the pleasure of seeing a live band here for the first time. In comparison to other venues I have been to it was decently sized. It had two floors, a main bar and a service bar that were both efficient along with a...More

This isn't for everyone but if you like pop or hard rock or grunge type music you may like this place. Be prepared to stand in like and have your bags checked but most places do that now so its no big deal.
