This is a small venue for concerts which made it a great place to visit. We enjoyed a type of music that was new to us, but as I looked through the list of upcoming concerts, I found that a variety of types of music...More

Great intimate venue to see a show. This is the second show I've seen there and always can see the performers with no problem.

My excitement level was at all-time high for Chronixx/Jah 9 live in concert. My experience with the Wonder Ballroom is limited as not many acts play there that I am familiar with. I showed up while the pre-show DJ was warming up the crowd. I...More

This was our first time to see a show here. It is a dated building , but a very cool vibe with stairs that go downstairs to The Bunk room where you can grab food.

The Wonder Ballroom was the perfect venue for the Ginuwine concert. We had so much fun. Much better than the Crystal Ballroom for sure. Parking is a bit sketchy, but that is the only negative.

Great 21+ show. Sound quality was fantastic though pretty loud compared to other indoor shows I've been to at the front. Door staff, bartenders, and security were all very nice. Only one bathroom in the entrance so the line can be a bit long at...More

Went to see Boombox, was great show. Nicely seperated adult/minor section. Downstairs bar & smoking section for 21+. Not sure where minors went to smoke or if there's an area. Good sound and ample space to dance.

Great facility. Plenty of space for a crowd but no sound issues and good view from the balcony. Venue staff polite and professional. Great time.

The place itself is nothing special but the sound system was good and so was the concert experience. What I find odd was the crowd separation between younger and older concert-goers. It looked like you could get to a part of the hall were they...More

First time seeing a show at this venue last week with my step daughter. From first impressions I thought the floor area was smaller than Roseland but cleaner. They had a large area marked off for drinking. I had wished I was able to purchase...More

They have bars on both floors, there was not a roped of section you would see when minors are admitted. They card you at the door. I would think the individual shows would say "minors permitted" like you see 21 and over.
