Nice people - low key vibe - overall great place to see a show. Get there early ( we arrived at 6 and doors open at 7) to get a seat in front on the stage ( better sightlines then the sides). New padded seats are an upgrade over the church benches. Cant wat to go back

Intimate concert room for 300, maybe 325 people. Saw Ryan Montbleau, and Will Evans. Sound is great, space is great, everything, just great. BYOB, and bring snacks too. Cash only baked goods & coffee for sale.

Really enjoyed the chill atmosphere - not a bad seat in the house, and everything is close to the stage. It's byob so go prepared - bring some food, some drink and just enjoy the show. Can't wait to go back

You can catch all kinds of acts here, in a repurposed old mill building (I think). I like it because it's relatively small and intimate. No reserved seats so get there early if you want the choicest seats. We got there an hour early, when they opened the doors, and we had lots of seating choices. Be aware that some... More

My wife and i along with friends and family have enjoyed many concerts at the Narrows Center over the last few years. We have seen Tom Rush among others. We've also attended some of the comedy shows. The venue is an old administration building used by the former Textile industry in Fall River. The atmosphere is intimate. No bad seats... More

Thank you, Ray, for your review. Our building was one of the American Printing Company mills originally used for finished goods ready to transport. APC was the largest printer of cotton cloth in its day. It's a gorgeous space for live music and visual arts. We hope to welcome you back soon. Deb Charlebois More

Despite hosting great music for 15 years, the Narrows Center maintains the aura of a hidden gem. When enjoying any of the great shows it is easy to feel like you have stumbled onto something quite special. And you have. We saw the high energy New Orleans based Big Sam and Funky Nation. Absolutely wonderful show, great musicians. Narrows has... More

My wife and I drove 64 miles in Memorial Day traffic to see this show and it was worth every second. Narrows is a beautiful venue and although there are a few beams in the way you can easily see around them with very little effort. It is an intimate setting and the acoustics are unreal. It is also byob... More
