Wow! Great concert. First time at this venue. It's small but has a lot of character. Very personable experience. Only downside was the size of the lobby area which made getting to concession stand or bathrooms a burden. But don't let that stop you from coming. Great opportunity to see some good acts up close.

Charleston Music Hall is located nearly across from the east end of the Visitors' Center in an old building that has been updated. Here is the best part though. It only seats about 975 so everyone is relatively close to the stage, the actions and the performers. We had seats in the balcony on the right side and the view... More

We just saw a superb performance of the Charleston Jazz Orchestra in an ideal setting for this great group of jazz musicians. Over the years we have been able to see several jazz concerts at the Music Hall where the seats are very comfortable and the acoustics excellent. Unfortunately we do not live in Charleston or we would go more... More

An old train station, repurposed as a music venue. The restoration as a music venue goes back to the early 90's as the underutilized space received a makeover as a performance center - being home to Calvin Gilmore's "Serenade". Great attention was paid to the acoustics, and it is still evident today. Truly not a bad seat in the house.... More

Ok everyone, the Performing Arts Center is not the only place with great acoustics. Had the pleasure of attending a Boney James concert last Friday. The Hall is located downtown smack in the middle of the historic district. Lots of things to see and lots of places to eat or drink within walking distance. I recommend Hall's Chophouse, literally a... More

This was a great place to attend a concert, not a bad seat in the house. Staff was friendly & helpful. They have a snack bar inside but allow outside food to be brought in, just not drinks.

This is a Music Hall with a history. The building dates back to the mid 1800's. It is a beautiful building. Inside, you will find an intimate little theatre. The space is charming. The seating comfortable, and there is not a bad seat in the place. Want a drink? No problem. Want to take your drink into the theatre? Also,... More
