    For such a big venue, the drink prices are SUPER reasonable. Great place to see a show-- and there's a second bar and bathrooms downstairs!

    If your a shorty like me go upstairs!! Its a little far away from the stage but worth it to actually see everything if you always have tall people in front of you like me.

    Great bands + good acoustics = good times (acts like Art Brut and Bob Log III). But if you come here during the summer, bring a fan. They have AC, but they never seem to turn it on.

    Get there early enough to snag a seat at the bar. Spin halfway to watch the band, spin halfway again to grab a drink. Repeat as needed.
