Came here with friends to see a Justin Moore concert. Nice small, intimate place with comfortable seats. Drinks were not as outrageously priced like other venues. I've heard rumors they're tearing it down, I hope they rebuild and put something similar in its place. Great...More

It should have been upgraded when they decided to tear it down. The seating is atrocious. Poor quality seats can (and do) ruin an event. Seats do not last forever and these are shot. The stage is in need of a complete redo as well....More

Yes....I waited in a pretty long line before the show. I suggest getting seated then going right before the show starts or during the warm up band

the crowd absolutely impacts all aspects of the venue from the vibe, the bathrooms..all of it. It is such a small venue, it is impossible. I am sure the bathrooms will be fine.
