    Concert venue. If you go upstairs there is a really chill bar that serves (limited) food. I got a slice of pizza and was surprised with how filling it was! Easy access to the highway too for travelers

    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.

    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.

    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!

    I've seen a lot of phenomenal shows here. Just wish people would STFU during performances. Why pay good money to get drunk and chat it up with your buddies the whole time?
