  • Saw Puddles Pity Party here on Saturday and it was incredible. Sound quality was great, seating was comfortable, staff were amazing and super friendly and helpful. Only negative is beer prices were pretty steep, which is normal for a venue like this, but they were higher than stadium prices. Very, very nice place overall though. Great experience.
  • An excellent venue with an eclectic calendar, limited but well curated bar, and friendly staff. Slightly more expensive than a regular venue, but assigned seating and venue-wide choice vantage points make up for what you might feel is a slightly above-average ticket; again, depends on the show, however!
