“Not a Bad Seat in the House!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Austin City Limits Live is hosted at The Moody Theater in a state-of-the-art, 2,700 + venue that is so good, it is also a PBS program produced by KLRU-TV. Live acts run the gamut -- it never disappoints - much like the South by Soutwest extravaganza - but of course, on a much smaller scale. Enough said.

“ACL Live on a weeknight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Awesome experience. It was great seeing the studio live and being intimate with the artist. It was worth the wait. Everyone was friendly and if you leave for a moment, you can hear everything outside. It was a wonderful evening, in the heart of the city.

“An Austin Classic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

This small, accoustically perfect venue is a great way to see music in an intimate setting. The beer is ice cold, and there isn't a bad seat in the house.

We also loved the outdoor patio where there is also a bar and entertainment.

“Not A Bad Seat In The House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Great venue for a concert !!!! Don't worry if you can't buy floor tickets, any location in the theater is great; literally there is not a bad seat in the house. There are full bars on each of the three levels plus in the lobby and prices are reasonable. Be sure to find out if the show has standing or seating on the "floor". The seats on the floor are comfortable folding chairs and the mezzanine and balcony offer stadium seating. I've sat in the front row on the floor and in the balcony - both were great. You need to buy tickets to events as soon as they go on sale as they sell out quickly.

“Excellent Venue and Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

If you get the opportunity to catch a show here, grab it! It's truly a once in a lifetime experience. We saw Nine Inch Nails here in a performance that was unique only to ACL. The setting is intimate, it's a great venue, and a wonderful part of the Austin music scene.
