    Head to the very top. You'll love the view! Also, a great venue for those concerts! Big enough to handle a large crowd...small enough to make it feel intimate.

    I recommend taking a cab here and planning your night ahead. Cabs can be a long wait if you wait last minute and parking is hard to find/ a hassle!

    Amazing venue!! If you choose to sit in the cheapest seats, go for the very back row, in the middle. Great sound, more room to dance and a place to lean against.

    The ushers will give you ear plugs for the asking. Also, you can avoid hiking up the hill to your seat by nabbing a free ride on the shuttle, which you can catch in front of the box office.
