We watched Helmet (metal band) play here, in the lower level showroom recently. The room where the concert occurred was fantastic! It was well designed acoustically and ergonomically for attendees. The prices for cocktails, of which they had a wide variety, were quite reasonable for the quality of the establishment. Service was also excellent. The show sounded absolutely great, and I attribute a good bit of this to the acoustically sound showroom. I have seen this band at three other places and the sound here was far and away the best. Nice job!

Really unique and intimate location for shows! Tickets were very reasonably priced, parking adjacent, safe surroundings. We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, looking forward to returning!

My experience was meeting an old (and older) co-worker and his wife for a show. Specifically because his son was performing and my ex-coworker (from Jersey) wanted to grab a beer while he was in the City. I was in the area for some other business that didn't end until about 5:30 and the show was at 7, so I decided that with a Happy Hour special, I'd just come in early. I was pleasantly surprised!

Saw Sheer Mag here. Every chance you get to see Sheer Mag, you should go see Sheer Mag. The venue was huge, the atmosphere was great, and the drinks were well poured. There really wasn't a bad viewing angle either, the positioning of the stage is very acommodating to the whole room. Great place to see a performance.

This is a great venue. I've seen several shows here. The drinks are good and the food is good. Whether you're catching a show upstairs or downstairs, you'll have a great time. Surprisingly easy Street parking outside, or the garage around the corner. The sister venue in Wilmington, DE "The Queen" is also very cool with a similar setup.
