One of my favorite intimate spots to see international and national shows.Meet and greet is somewhat common. Ticket prices has jacked up a bit in the last few years, but that's everywhere. Highly recommended.

This is a very nice small venue theater. We saw Clean Bandit there on March 26th. The venue hold a maximum of 700 people. It has a decent bar inside, limited seating (mostly standing room), and ample parking on the street. Our concert started at...More
