  • Beautiful venue with wonderful acoustics and helpful staff. I don't believe it would be possible to have a "bad seat" in this venue as it not only a smaller size but the tiered seating ensures you will have a great view of the show. Excellent restroom facilities and a nice bar for a quick drink before your show.
  • Beautiful space with incredible sound as you would hope. Seating is good in that they are comfortable and the heights and slope give everyone good visibility. Needs a middle aisle though. A long way to squeeze past a lot of people to get to the middle seats. Had an aisle seat though, which was great. Bar isn't big enough to cope with the number of people at the events if you hope for a beer at intermission.
