All reviews balcony seats great sound musical performances great acoustics gorgeous venue gladys knight dance competition nice theater beautiful architecture concert stage nutcracker rows gilt opera production audience
Do you like wine? Do you like going to bed at 7:30? Do you like a mediocre experience and half interested staff incapable of handling the audience they charged over 50 bucks a seat for? This is a great place for you.
Seriously though, this...More
The Broadway shows that the Tivoli has brought to Chattanooga have been fantastic! I highly recommend going to one or buying the series. We have been very pleased with all of the shows we have seen and the quality of the productions.
Go back in time by taking in a performance at the Tivoli. All the gilt and glitter of a by-gone era is on display--and the acoustics in the place are surprisingly good. A great venue, highly recommended.
Saw Stomp 2018 here, the show was great. Loved the restored Tivoli - very much like the Tennessee theater, but the seats here are for very tiny humans.
It's a real gripe of mine that in an attempt to maintain historical accuracy, this extends to...More
We love historic theaters, and this was our first time at The Tivoli. We saw Stomp this past Friday night. We had a fabulous view from the front row back balcony. The only drawback to our seats was that there was a metal railing in...More

Call the Tivoli. They will direct you where to park. Area is very safe to walk to parking. I do not know about the gun permit rule but you can ask when you call the Tivoli. Wine is served; not sure about beer as I do not drink either of them.

We've walked the area at night but have never really felt unsafe. Some portions of downtown are rather dark, and deserted, and there are ALWAYS a few characters on the street which fall under the following categories: homeless, crazy, ramblers, beggars, shouters, shaggy, dirty, lost, wanderers, etc. Whether one "feels" unsafe in such circumstances, and/or surrounded with such characters, depends on the individual.
In Tennessee carrying a hand-gun is allowed by law:
T.C.A. § 39-17-1351 Permits are "shall-issue". Concealed or open carry of a handgun is allowed with permit. *Loaded long gun carry in public is generally illegal, with exceptions for activities such as hunting in approved areas. Unloaded long gun carry is not prohibited.
Not sure about the theater, but this law may, or may not apply, since they serve alcohol:
(T.C.A. § 39-17-1321 It is illegal for anyone to possess a handgun while under the influence of alcohol or any other controlled substance. It is lawful to possess a firearm on the premises of a public place where alcoholic beverages are served as long as such individual is not consuming alcoholic beverages. The allowable BAC for a handgun carry permit holder in public possession of a loaded firearm is exactly 0.0%, zero tolerance. Blood tests can establish intoxication by narcotics. Peaceable journey laws apply, and if an HCP holder has a drink, it is allowable to unload the firearm and lock it in the trunk of the vehicle, provided that the driver is under 0.08% BAC.)

There are parking lots (not free) all around downtown or parking spots with meters. You may need to walk a few blocks. I believe parking is free by any meter after 6 pm. We tend to find free parking on small streets far away and walk. It's a pleasant walk.
