Sickles Memorial Sky Bridge, named after late Congressman Carlton R. Sickles. The complex is thus accessible for patrons coming from Washington, D.C., as well as the northern part of Montgomery County, Maryland via the Metro rail system.
great venue with extremely good acoustics. Opportunity for large jam session before the music which lasted 3 hours more »
Amazing venue. It’s small enough to get a great view of the performance, but with quality sound! I’d recommend to arrive about 30 minutes early from the start of your event because parking is pretty.... more »
Stunning performance space just outside Washington DC. I have only heard classical music performances there but they have all been excellent: top-tier musicians and an acoustic balanced hall. Directly on the Metro's Red Line, but there's also ample inexpensive parking if you must drive.
An absolutely beautiful and nice venue. The wife and I saw the Russian Ballet's performance of the Nutcracker and were very impressed with the venue. Honestly every seat is pretty decent so dont worry too much about your view if you get a cheap ticket. They also have valet service which was great since when we went it was raining. However, the same area that they valet cars, lots of people just drop off at so there may be a line backed up to get in.
