    Looking for a place to eat/drink? Prohibition Taproom is about two blocks away - great food and beer selection. Leave about 25 minutes before the show to get a decent spot in the balcony.

    Don't go to the pregnant bartender. You probably won't make that mistake though, because she will be doing the best impression of somebody NOT working you've ever seen.

    If you are 21+, get a wristband so you can leave and re-enter at your leisure. This is the only venue of this size in Philly that allows their customers to do this.

    Waaaay better space for music than spaghetti. Like Terminal 5 in NYC but smaller and better. But seriously, who was that chick in the glasses and blue dress?? What a dreamgirl.

    This place fucking sucks ass. They won't let you go outside to have a cigarette unless you're over 21. Lamest thing I've ever heard of.

    Built in the early 1900’s as a luggage terminal under the same name, today’s Union Transfer is one of the best spots in the city to catch a concert.

    If you're there for a seated venue, not a rock concert. Bring a warm jacket. They keep the place at a cool 55 degrees for all the hot air and men in the place. I saw loads of women freezing like me
