Visited for the Q&A with Shawn Michaels, was a little manic due to the amount of people and it was a little confusing as to what would happen when - communication was none existent.

Booked this as a present for my fiance. We reserved seats and the usher showed us where to sit, they were very helpful and friendly. We sat on the second row. There were 4 comedians and all were very funny. Alot better than we expected and we will definitely come back.

We were hungry but they didn't serve snacks behind the bar. Lovely venue with character. We booked on the 7pm showing and there were... More
