Flew in from Colorado to see concert here. Blown away by Ottoman / Hindu architectural design elements. Very kind, cool staff. Tech seems to be top notch. Restrooms and all facilities super clean. Adjacent bar amazingly chic. I would fly in for a concert again....More

This venue isn't just well set up, it's got beautiful architecture on the inside. I can't imagine there being a bad spot in this whole place to watch a show. The bathrooms are always clean too, which is a plus.

The bar and food that is located inside the venue is genius. All staff and bartenders are really friendly. The place is well run. The seats are comfy, and not too crowded. Conclusion- Really nice place.
