    This is one of my favorite places to enjoy a show. It used to be an old vaudeville theatre and has a great intimate vibe- like you're in a 1900's mosh pit! But wear comfy shoes because you'll be stand

    Grungy (in a good way), old-school live venue; multi-tiered and standing room only, so grab a spot at the front of a level and stake your claim to a stretch of railing. Read more

    There's an awesome Jamaican restaurant nearby called The Real Jerk. I recommend the Roti. It's soooo good! - Fefe Dobson, VH1 You Oughta Know

    Nice venue. Perfect size for a smaller, more intimate show.

    WhenI come here to see Soilwork, one of the best metal bands ever, with a brand new album, please play them at volume more than 25%. REALLY disappointing. Will never come back.

    In the winter, it will be super cold between sets if you're near the stage. The wind jus blows right in.

    The quality of the venue's sound sucks. I think depending on the band/artist. It's like all you here is the bass and nothing else.

    Was at the Opera House last night to see the Gossip. When there buy drinks from the main bar only. The bartenders are the best, esp Athena!
