    THE most beautiful venue (to see a show) in Phoenix Metro hands down. Spectacular beauty inside and out. And many fun, inexpensive regular events which makes it accessible/affordable for everyone!

    This is a great place to visit during the day just to see the art and architecture. Or you can visit and take in a performance.

    Newly built and plenty to offer. Good view and if you cross the bridge look on the east side for the approaching plane gearing up for landing

    Amazing architecture and atmosphere. Great high end contemporary art exhibits and performances. Many places, installations, and architecture on the campus worth seeing. Check out the view of the lake

    Fantastic place to either begin a run over the beautiful bridge behind it, or hear some beautiful music being played inside. The architecture is mesmerizing.

    There's a full service bar here (none of that "we're a hospital, we can't serve you alcohol, sir" nonsense)

    This town has waited a long time for a replacement to the old Tempe Arts Center, where I worked, otherwise known as the public pool of the 50's. A world class art center truly worth the wait! Enjoy!

    This is a beautiful venue with a view of Tempe Town Lake! Also, the performance theatre is very small and intimate, and their tickets are pretty reasonably priced!
