The venue was good acoustically. Needs more seating, however. Rooftop dining and bar was really nice, but needs more chairs. Overall, good, good experience.

While I loved the old Theatre, the rebuilt venue is better than ever. Much improved in all ways including the bathrooms, bars and sound system. I recently saw Lucinda Williams there (for the 3rd time) and the show was amazing. Wonderfully intimate venue from any...More

One of my faves. Not a bad view in the house. And they don't oversell it, plenty of space to dance and carry on. Rooftop is legit for after parties. And let's not forget Waffle House after the show!

Very simply put (and I’m rarely simple), this is probably the best small venue I have ever seen a concert in. It was beautiful inside and the acoustics were fantastic. I absolutely loved it. I saw The War on Drugs here – excellent. This venue...More

Unfortunately, we didn't have tickets for a performance but the rooftop bar provided a great show. The cocktails are strong and the staff sweet. We had snacks and our view of downtown Athens construction was unobstructed. Great place to stop by on a spring evening.

I've seen so many shows here by now that it almost feels like a second home. One of the best under 1000 capacity rooms anywhere. I've enjoyed shows from both the floor and the balconies. Love the atmosphere, the acoustics, the bar servings, and the...More

Been in Athens since 2003, and the 'new' theater and renovations made after the devastating fire years ago are phenomenal. The acoustics are great. There isn't really a bad spot to see the show. It's super convenient to get drinks at every level of the...More

Great place for concerts - acoustics sound awesome. Saw Dave Matthews Cover Band and many others there. Must see if your favorite band is playing there

We saw Zoso there (twice, actually - once before it burned down and once after it was renovated), and it was awesome both times. I love this venue, and the acoustics are great.

No idea. I would suggest looking on the GA Theater website, and if you are looking for what else is happening in Athens on that date look at the Athens Chamber of Commerce website or just Google what's going on then. Hope... More
