    Great intimate venue for concerts and shows! Can only have alcoholic drinks upstairs tho. Get there early if you want a seat.

    Good venue for small acts and comedy shows. Check out the upstairs for real intimate shows with up-and-comers!

    I was surprised at how comfy I was in the pit. Great sound, nice people and the giant fans kept me comfy and were unobtrusive.

    Only had beer on the balcony and wouldn't let us take it down to the main floor. Lame.

    The trocadero is an amazing place to listen to live music. It's kinda small but that's what give it its amazing atmosphere. Whether UR in the back, the front or on the balcony you will love the show.

    This concert venue is right in the middle of chinatown in center city. I have been here a couple of times and its huge inside. I enjoy coming here for concerts!

    Parking is about $25 no matter which nearby lot you try. Gorgeous old building, good sound, rude staff.

    Movie Mondays in the Balcony are spectacular, everyone shares a sense of comradery. $3 gets you in and gets you a chip that is good for redemption of $3 towards food or drink. Great movies every week.

    Aramis Rivera · June 8, 2014
  • Aramis R.

    Great place to see a show of any type. Hardcore, hip hop, country, whatever. Love it here.

    Movie Mondays are fun. There's alcohol, good people, and raffles and trivia after the movie. Definitely a good date event.

    When someone who works at The Troc says "out back," this is where they mean.

    Can't open a tab and there's a $10 dollar minimum on card purchases. ;)

    Boycott this place. The owner joanna pang is a biggot and dislikes gays/lesbians/transexuals. Shame on her. Stay away

    Well, I guess I must be a total dickhead since I work at The Troc. Thanks, Gab, I had no idea that working here made me into a dickhead.

    Great venue for live music!! On the floor and could see wonderfully - women's bathroom could be bigger.

    Even though it is far from the most handicap accessible place, staff was super nice helping me out with a broken foot-though I couldn't get a drink since the bar was upstairs

    Attend a special event at one of the cities premiere venues. Since the dawn of the Philly music scene artists have performed at this amazing attraction in the heart of Philadelphia.

    Amazing atmosphere & acoustics. There's a WaWa down the street for all post concert refreshments (and you'll need them in the summer).

    Zayne Savall · February 25, 2012
  • LEQ

    Great place to see a show but parking close by will cost you. Also, quite possibly the worst women's restroom ever. Avoid if possible.

    Balcony is crap. Not enough seating but it slopes so deep if you stand you can't see.

    This 19th century Victorian Trocadero Theatre is the only one of its kind still open in the country. Notable showgirls performed at this location when it was used as a burlesque venue in the 1950s.
