    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

    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.

    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.

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

    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!
