If you order a drink at the front bar & plan to go in the main room to watch a show, let them know so they put it in a plastic cup instead of a glass--saves you from getting stopped at the door.
Go for lunch on Tuesdays & Thursdays for a mindblowing bean and cheese burrito and a beverage for only $5!
Arrive early and order a cocktail from the lounge bar - the I-10 smash and the Honey Badger are delicious. Don't order a fru-fru drink during the show - the bartenders will rightfully scowl at you.
This a place I could call home. Everyone looks after each other. Crescent is a community which fully describes the future movement of downtown Phoenix.
This place has an excellent sound system
They have PBR now and they also have less gross tasting beers too.
Don't eat before getting to the venue. Cocina 10 is located at the venue and the burritos and salsa are yum!
Make sure you check out both bars before ordering to see what beers are on tap. Each bar often has some different drafts on tap.
Someone wrote a tip that there are only two unisex bathrooms. This is actually false. In the back of the venue, there are two separate men's and women's bathrooms with numerous stalls in each.
Tip your bartenders heavy because they are the jam!
I love that you can chill in the Lounge and still hear the tunes from the Ballroom pretty pretty well.
The only venue to have M83 now that's the shit!

If you like it hoppy get the O'Dell's IPA
Order anything with juice because it's freshly squeezed juice!!!
The best venue in phx yet and solves my weeknight problem. How do u go home, change, eat and make it in time for the opening band. Restaurant on site.
good shows and burro's!
They have only two unisex restrooms. One in the Lounge and one in the Ballroom. Clearly, the design isn't practical for a music venue...
Get the nachos!

Honey badger a must!!!
Check Facebook for specials... Got a mini bean and cheese burrito for $3 at lunch. Yummy! If you can't drink alcohol order a ginger beer and pretend!
Seating the the side of the stage is great if you don't have someone standing right in front of you.
See a show here! This is one of the best live music venues in the Valley!
I attended a concert here earlier last year. While it's a bit strange how they separate up the over and under 21 crowds, it doesn't take away from the extremely close and fantastic atmosphere.
Try a Rest Stop alcoholic beverage.. it's worth the $$!
Gave the honey badger a try. Lime, bitters, honey whiskey, and ginger beer. Good stuff!
Mention New Times when ordering during Wednesday lunch to get 20% off your bill - it's part of their 80s Wednesdays promotion running July-August 2012.
20% off your bill on Wednesday's from 11am-3pm!
There's seating in the back if you want to relax at a more chilled out concert, but you might want to save those early because they tend to fill up.
Ask Bruce to give you his juice.its most ripe when he's wearing his gold underware.
Rest Stop... Lovely...
This venue has great sound, good beers on tap, and is quite intimate. They bring in lots of bands across many genres.
This place has excellent live music. We are lucky to have it. I like the beer. Which kind? All the kinds.
One of Downtown Phoenix's best kept secrets. Great place to see a band.
Rock Lottery with Henri!
Try their house drinks. The honey badger is pretty tasty, ...on the other hand, so are the $2 PBR tall-boys.
Amazing venue for live music. This place is so intimate it will feel as if it is just you and the artist in the room. Perfect hangout for you and your friends.
Being under 21, my impression of Crescent Ballroom is solely based on the music. I really enjoy the diversity of bands they have, and they're the venue I most frequently check for upcoming shows.
Hooray for a music venue that DOESN'T subject you to a TSA pat down. The bouncers are super nice, and they have free ice water for under-age concert patrons. Favorite in Phoenix.
I saw the Clinic here and this place was great! The acoustics were awesome and the atmosphere was friendly. It was downtown Phoenix in a fun part.
Amazing venue. Hot. Crowded. Rock.
The free flamenco dancing was great! It is every Sat night from 6 to 8 PM.
That guacamole was good enough to stab a hobo
The bean and cheese burrito is tiny now!
It's a hell of a venue that's intimate and friendly and innovative. So many good people, vibes and drinks. People are very cigarette sharing friendly too as long as you smile and say please.
Best, most intimate place for a show!
