    One of the best small music venues in the US. Make friends with someone who has VIP passes for special access to the VIP bar and viewing area on the second floor. Hot tub in the backstage artist area.

    Oh and the second view on the balcony was pretty awesome too. I love that they have that and the back opened area for smoking!

    Get there early for the best spot; the opening acts are nearly always decent and great for finding new music!

    Up and coming bands, 90's bands touring again, amazing cover/tribute bands. Decent drink prices for a "venue."

    Awesome Venue! Attracts good bands. MacAuther Center is a nice place to wait for concerts.

    Arrive early for an evening show and have dinner at one of the many establishments on Granby Street or in MacArthur Mall!

    Love the venue. But the staff are mostly dicks. They barged in on my friend while they where using a toilet.

    Great venue, security was really tight on moshing and crowd surfing. Also, drinks are pretty pricey.

    No seats.. the hip-hop concerts are more like appearances, so don't expect them to be on time.
