This place is horrible if you are in a wheelchair. The area where they put wheelchairs is atrocious,there is no way that you can see. There are steps throughout the venue,which are impossible to navigate in a wheelchair. I was very disappointed in this venue.

Visited 11/7/15 for the Robert DeLong & Coleman Hell performance. Venue was on par with others I've visited. Liked the tiered/slopping layout of the viewing area... Although we were right up against the elevated stage. Bar was good, expensive as expected but bartender was nice...More
