  • This is a nice little venue. It's very clean and the staff and friendly. There doesn't seem to be enough bathrooms, so there are quite long lineups at intermission and this adds to the connections in the lobby. Overall, I enjoyed the venue, but I did find it to be a big snug in the lobby.
  • Very nice venue for a concert. Good sound system and comfortable seating. Overall, a well run operation.
