It's a lovely venue and all seats are good though we have our favourites! The acoustics are really good in the main auditorium. There is a nice cafe and bars where interval orders are accepted. Also has a nice gift shop.

I come here regularly for concerts by the RSNO and while I quite like the concert hall as a building it isn't the best acoustically.

Great concert venue with nearby parking. Reminds of the Barbican. Good choice of programmes. At certain times good concerts for children.

I like the seating plan of the venue, great view from all areas, hate the constant having to get out of my seat to let people in and out of the aisles because they drink too much when they are there and need the toilet a lot!

Popped in to the Concer Hall to purchase tickets and decided to go for sandwich and tea in the Cafe, service was fine. It is a nice lounge to sit in and enjoy your tea at a peaceful and leisurely pace.

Great concert hall, great acoustics, lovely location in the center of downtown at the end of Buchanan street. Saw the Inverary and District Pipe Band during Piping Live Week. Would love to hit a classical concert there in the future. Not a bad seat in the house.
