“Concerts Feel Like a Cultural Event at The Palace”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

The Louisville Palace is a great place to see your favorite band. Being a small venue, seats 2700, most seats are pretty good. For a concert, the. 1929 Spanish Baroque venue beats the heck out of a huge, sterile arena designed for sporting events. In the downtime, there's something to enjoy everywhere you look from statues, to mood lighting, to turrets and colorful Spanish tiles. Any concert feels more like a cultural event here in the theatre district. Buy tickets in person at the box office for less. I had a question, called, and the box office manager was very helpful.
Check out the Palace calendar online and make a point of visiting this venue both for music and the architectural charm. For mature adults, an evening at the Palace may feel like a throwback to your young adult days where you could see your favorite bands without looking at the jumbo tron.

“Great venue for music, shows!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

I've been to the palace on several occasions to see all kinds of shows. Since it's a smaller venue, you can sit almost anywhere and still have good seats.

“Great place to see a concert!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

I love going to the Palace. It doesn't matter if you sit in the lowers or the balcony, there isn't a bad seat in the house. I couldn't tell you how many shows I've seen at the Palace since the early 80's but its been quite a lot!

“Beautiful and Intimate Setting”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

I loved the sound quality and the intimacy of the venue for a concert I recently attended. It is a throw back to the heyday of the highly over the top decorated hometown theaters of the past, which is what it really is! Worth going just to tour.
