    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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).

    Hang out on the patio across the street at Llama Tooth before the show! List of 40 craft beers and good egg plant fries too

    I saw Mutemath here which was one of the best shows I've seen at one of the best venues.

    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.

    Find a stellar selection of microbrews at any of the three bars, plus tasty vegan fare.

    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.

    Where else can you enjoy having ice cream in one hand, a drink in the other, and watch a band play simultaneously?

    Great concert. Disappointing venue, but really only due to Pennsylvania liquor laws.

    Holly Williams was great, and the drunk frat boy starting a fight and getting kicked out was cool too.

    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.

    Excited to be coming back to Philly and checking out Union Transfer, don't think it was open when we were here last time. See you on February 7.

    Couldn't bring your drinks out of the bar area at a Lucero show-just ain't right!
