Love these old theaters! It’s been well maintained. We had some issues with a couple that wanted to stand and block people’s view. Thought there was going to be a fight with several people around us. Not sure if added ushers would have helped or not.

I drove down from Columbus for Steve Hackett’s “Foxtrot at 50 and more” show. If you’ve never heard of Steve, or Genesis (the original, not the sappy pop songs from the Collins years), or Foxtrot you should be ashamed! He put on a fantastic show! The Taft is a wonderful place. Great visibility. Comfy seats. Excellent acoustics/sound. Not obscene beer prices too. The Phelps hotel is right around the corner and a great place to stay for shows!

Great place. Go!

The seating is not very comfortable, it feels like it wants to push me forward out of the seat. A lot of the music before the show starts sucked, sorry.

The show was great however, the security staff at the end of the night was horrible. Who forces toddlers into 32° weather and turns the lights off in the lobby area just because we got five minutes to lock up? I requested for them to turn the lights back on and they would not. It’s cold and our ride was pulling up to the building so we didn’t have to watch toddlers through the cold streets in downtown Cincinnati. This is just ridiculous and rude. So inconsiderate. Two older employees. Both had gray hair.

I drove down from Columbus to see Steve Hackett perform the entire Genesis “Seconds Out” albums and more live. It was an excellent show! I’ve waited over 50 years to hear “Supper’s Ready” performed live. No overwhelming light shows or theatrics but fantastic music! I liked it better than the Roger Waters show I saw later that year.

It’s an ornate old theater that’s been lovingly restored. Right downtown on the south east side. The Phelps hotel is right around the corner if you’re looking for a nice place to stay while in town. Seats are comfy and I don’t think there’s a bad view in the entire place.

Great music, great venue and a reasonably quick serving bar. I was truly a happy camper! Go! Enjoy!

It's a beautiful theatre, but it is NOT handicap friendly!!!! I have a broken back, and walking up hundreds of stairs nearly killed me.

We came to the Taft for a concert. The venue changed from the theater to the ballroom (I'm assuming due to low ticket sales) days before the show. The staff and security team were the most helpful and friendly of any concert I've ever attended. It's a great venue and I am looking forward to coming back.

Excellent acoustics accent this quaint, antique theatre in downtown Cinci. Enjoyed Tommy Emmanuel immensely. Seating is a little cramped and there were temperature control issues. Walking distance to many bars and restaurants.

The acoustics were great and the concert sounded precise. the sound was at a Good level and not too loud to enjoy.

Only complaint I have is they left all the front doors open and it was very cold outside. The auditorium was too cold to enjoy the concert for quite a while.
