    Great place to see a show but the sound isn't all that good. You have to get in front of the mixing board if you want to hear it good.

    Beautiful venue, unfortunately it was so damn hot. They also had a small smoking area outside, and it just poured smoke in. They should have just let them smoke inside.

    They have like 2 bars, a restaurant and a kick-ass music scene that always comes to this place. Great sound system too. What more could you ask for from a good venue?

    One of the cities best live music venues. During training camp the National will host various acts like The Dropkick Murphys, Steve Earle & The Dukes and "Uncle Ted" -- the one and only Ted Nugent.

    Pretty sure it is illegal for a guy to frisk a girl upon entering. Shame on you national for not having a woman working.

    If the bars downstairs are too crowded, make your way upstairs. There's another bar on the right-hand side. You can also order food from the late night menu!

    Borrow an electric beard trimmer from Tom Falcone so you don't look like a homeless person... Also enjoy an ice cold Dr. Pepper.

    By far the worst venue I have ever been to. They kicked an amazing band out for speaking their mind. I will never go there again. Keep it up Aiden!
