    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.

    Excellent venue. Feels intimate but is pretty large. Nice sound system. Craft beer selections are amazing, and they have servers who'll come to you!

    The indie-rock concert venue serves as a happy medium between smaller rooms like Johnny Brenda’s and Kung Fu Necktie and larger joints like the Electric Factory and the Tower Theater.

    The best small venue in Philadelphia hands-down. Two bars to serve you during and after a show. Any spot is good for watching live.

    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.

    Superb venue with great staff and reasonable drink prices as well. Not to mention the exception sound quality! One of my favorites venues.

    Like this venue as there was a place to sit in the balcony. I can't stand for long periods of time so if you are like me, sit in the balcony if you need to.

    Sometimes they open the top for seats. It usually doesn't get crowded right away and there's a bar up there too wth waitresses coming around to bring you drinks.

    remember the second door takes you to the front of the stage. But this is a sweet venue many places are great for seeing the band you love.

    Great new venue. Buy the parking pass when you get tickets - it costs more the night of the show and is much cheaper than the city lots in the area.

    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

    The best venue in Philly. Great selection of beer (they've got cider for those with gluten allergy).

    I had a lot of fun, though the show I saw was geared more towards kids. Standing room only, so my legs were killing me.

    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.

    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.
