Great place to see a show!

I love this venue because it's not to big, the crowd is usually easy going, the vibe is relaxed, the shows are fun! There are plenty of places to eat & drink before and after.

The Greek Theater is exactly what it sounds like. I was here to see the Yo Yo Ma, Edgar Meyers and Chris Thile trio performing Bach arrangements. It rocked. The performers that they have here can't get better and UC Berkeley is a beautiful place. I would give it 5 stars except for the horrible traffic and parking situation there... More

Even with rain this was an amazing place to see Radiohead. Bring a pillow to sit on. Even with long lines to enter we still got an excellent seat. Can't wait to come back!

My daughter Valen (13) has been waiting to see her favorite artist, Lauryn Hill, perform and it just so happened that she was performing at this venue with NAS. To make it a memorable experience, I decided to purchase tickets and take her to see them. We drove up from Bakersfield and were mesmerized by the ambiance of the surrounding... More

Music has been a passion of mine since I was a toddler. I have attended hundreds of live concerts, over the past four decades. Outdoor venues are my favorite destination! My daughter bought us tickets, to see The Lumineers, at The Greek Theater at Berkeley, last month. What a fantastic show, and what a WONDERFUL venue!! The weather was perfect,... More

A Berkeley gem. I love that it's outdoors, too. There's nothing like a great show on a beautiful evening at the Greek. And Cheapskate Hill is awesome for viewing and listening to shows that you can't get into for whatever reasons. An excellent mix of performers have passed through this place and continue to do so. Some of my favorite... More

There is not a poor seat in the venue! For the concerts we attended it was General Admission and seating was open. Plan on arriving a little early and bring a cushion to sit on. It is a Greek Style outdoor theater and the acoustics are excellent. There is beer and wine available as well as non-alcoholic options. A quaint... More

We recently enjoyed watching and listening to Bonnie Raitt in concert there. It was our very first visit there. We were really impressed with the theater. Quite frankly, we only learned not too long ago that it was an outdoor amphitheater. We had reserved seats some time ago, and we were glad we did that. The seats are really chairs,... More

We saw a concert here last night. The acoustics were good for out doors. All seats are close enough you don't need the extra video screens. Be prepared for a steep climb if you are sitting on the stone benches or lawn. I recommend you bring cushions or a seat that has no legs. We had these stadium seats with... More
