    Food is good. Drinks a bit pricey. Not strong but for the price I'd like to get a buzz going on faster. Seen a few shows here and love the acoustics. Great for intimate shows.

    Love this place. Here mostly for music & events. Food wise... Surprisingly good! Mexican fare. The carne asada burrito was outstanding and their homemade salsas/hot sauces are to die for! Stop in!

    Late night dance parties, great shows and plenty of beer choices. I don't know what there is to dislike here!

    I have been to countless venues throughout the U.S. and this is the worst venue I've ever been to. The security are complete assholes. Also, what are with the bleachers? This place sucks!

    Crescent has quickly become an iconic staple in the CenPho scene. If you haven't been, treat yo' self

    A Phoenix gem! Cool, hip restaurant bar in front of a truly amazing and surprisingly sizable music venue. Great bands every night. And oh... really good food.

    Best small venue in Phoenix Metro. Sound is great, it's pretty intimate but you still get to dance like no one cares. Bands seem to really enjoy playing here.

    I came here to see Toadies and to see OFF! Raucous shows. I see people with backpacks. I wear a backpack to the EELS, and I get turned away. I walked back home to drop it off. Be consistent!!

    Great venue - bar and restaurant up front - seating and bar in the music hall. Intimate setting for music and friends.

    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.

    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.

    If you like it hoppy get the O'Dell's IPA

    Best, most intimate place for a show!

  • Randy L.

    Stinkwoods Records on W Camelback sells tickets to Crescent shows. Cash only + $1 service fee which is less than online. Great venue but get here a bit early if you want table seats or bleacher seats.

    This might be the best music venue in Phoenix!

    The Lalo Burger may be one of the best in the Valley. Where's your fav burger?
