The Mack was the perfect venue for the launch of 21inc- Ideas Festival 2015 - What a perfect backdrop for Atlantic Ballet and Emerging leaders to perform thematic dances based on some challenges we are facing in Atlantic Canada - also was a great place to watch Wanabi Fameur rock out to open the festival.

Saw Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys last night and they put on a great show. Nice venue for an intimate show. Price was right, too. However, management needs to fix tables that teeter and totter.

One of the cooler concert venues I've ever visited, the Mack features table seating and a great bar. Even with the prominent bar, it was clear that the focus was what was happening on stage. Acoustically the room is great and the table seating really brought people together. I spent one night seated with three guys from Newfoundland and it... More

Great old Theatre. Watched "Bitter Girls" as I suppose the only non PEI residents. Great experience with lots of fun. The seating on the round tables was great because it gave us the opportunity to talk with local people and to feel welcome. Would do it definately again.

Great night of entertainment. We thoroughly enjoyed this musical. We have been to many Broadway shows and this is right up there with the best. Highly recommend and get one of the front center tables.

I couldn't think of a better cast for this show. They all played their parts exceptionally. Completely believe able. The Mack has a full bar and a limited snack menu although it would be nice if it had a few more options.

We attended a sold out show the week of Aug 17th. We had front row seats for the show. The talent was phenominal in my opinion, with lots of laughs that everyone in the audience could certainly relate to. The music was great, the band and singes very talented. We had a great time and met some nice ladies from... More

Great adaptation of the stage play about dealing with break-ups. Talented actors and musicians put on a show that keeps you smiling and dancing along! Sitting around tables (with bar service available) was a new experience for me. I liked being able to have a drink during the show, and it was also very conducive to conversation with your table-mates... More
