This is a classic old hall and a wonderful performance space. Seating is always excellent and the sound terrific. We were there with friends for a concert by some long-admired folk artists. The evening was excellent. There is a bar with snacks which can be enjoyed at your seats, and all the volunteer attendants are extremely helpful. When there enjoy... More

A phenomenal place to tap into the London music scene! This historical location does its best to be accessible for younger generations and is really a treat to visit! The acoustics are very complimentary for the orchestra, and leads to a great experience with classical (or other forms) of music!

We saw Michael Kaeshammer here for the second time. The hall is small enough to sit in the back row and be closer than the front seat of the JLC. The acoustics were great, meaning we could hear everything.

Great venue to hear music. Acoustics are amazing and they bring in a great line-up of musicians and performers. Wonderful to have in our city and hope they keep up the good work!

I have attended several events at the Aeolian Hall and, like others, I have found it casual yet intimate. You feel like you are really experiencing the performance and not just watching it from a distance. The opportunity to have a glass of wine or beer during breaks and possibility of meeting the performers in the lobby afterwards are nice... More

I attended the Olenka Farewell London Show at Aeolian Hall last Friday evening with family. From the historic look and feel of the Hall, to it's decor (artwork for sale, signed posters from past performers) to the helpful volunteers it is a relaxing enjoyable atmosphere. The sound is incredible. Seating is comfortable and there is a balcony as well, and... More

It is a relaxed venue. I like the ability to walk to the bar and carry your drink with you. The sound is not the greatest though the ticket prices are very reasonable. It is not too large and so the sound is not a real problem though it could be better.

This was by far the best concert we have attended at the Aeolian Hall. Royal gets better each time. Peter Katz's opening segment was fantastic and was a perfect match for a Royal Wood concert. Royal's repertoire gets more extensive and varied over time making the concert a very enjoyable medley of both older favorites and new material. He loves... More

We had our 1st visit to the Aeolian Hall last night to see Malian artist Habib Koite. What a fantastic venue to see acoustic based music! A small hall that sits about 300 people, on the 2nd floor of a 130 year old building on Dundas St. East, close by the Western Fairgrounds. Last night for Habib and his band... More
