    Beautiful venue, with great sound. However as it is an old venue, the seats while comfy are very close together and beams can obstruct view

    If you're on the floor, you'll probably be standing for the whole show. If you want to sit, try and get balcony seats near the first row

    The acoustics of this venue is extraordinary. It is an old place, so the seats are tight with small leg room. Some seat views are obstructed with beams.

    This is the best venue in Toronto for a relaxing show. The seats aren't comfortable, but the environment is cozy, the sound is great, and it's a Toronto landmark.

    There can be some bad seats so just be aware of the seating chart before buying scalped/second-market tickets - especially if it's a sitdown show!

    It's a great, classic concert hall, not much more needs to be said. If someone you like is playing here get tickets you won't regret it.

    The place is really cool, but very uncomfortable. Smaller seats than old venues in Nashville. And they slide forward and back. It's odd. Lids for drinks. Stopped serving before the show was over.

    One of the best concert halls in the city. If any artist you love is playing here, I strongly advise you purchase tickets as they will sound incredible. Look out for me performing here one day ;-)

    Came and saw The Stooges play at Masses Hall a few years ago. My seats were poor but the venue is otherwise fantastic. Very personal atmosphere, depending on who's on stage.

    Nice place! There is no such thing as a "bad seat". The basement area is perfect for a small cocktail party

    If you want to watch, yes there are some bad seats in this house. But to listen....it's awesome all over.....

    While not exactly award winning acoustics, this hall definitely wins some points for its atmospheric appeal

    Great place for music but avoid the top floor, row B - hard wooden seats with absolutely no leg room.

    Do not sit in the gallery unless you are anorexic and 4 feet tall and enjoy sitting on wood chairs built in the 50's

    When your ticket says "view obstructed by post," it means it. Be careful when you're ordering balcony seats

    Don't get in to the nosebleeds if you're taller than 5ft11. Your knees WILL hit the head of the person in front of you.
