I can't believe I had waited so long to enjoy a concert at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA! We recently saw Willie Nelson at the Greek. It was a general admission show, we lined up minutes before the gates opened and had no trouble getting good seats. The seats are concrete benches, bring a blanket, or other padded type... More

sit in the seats not the lawn. Too long of lines for beer and wine... go early and buy two.. the limit so you don't have to get up and down. the sound here is perfect but bring layer cause no matter what it gets cold at night in our beautiful berkeley hills.

Amazing venue with great acoustics. We came to see The Postal Service and it was a great show. I will definitely come back for good artists.

We had such a fun time for 2 night and 1 afternoon at the Greek seeing the Furthur Band. We loved that from everywhere in the venue you can enjoy the music to the fullest. The music, food and cocktails were delish!

This was a great theater modeled after the historic Greek and Roman theaters. I liked the beautiful facade of old columns . It's outdoor seating and I imagine all the seats are 'good' seats. A lot of fun to be in this Theater.

Take a blanket, seat cushion, enjoy the people watching before the show. Great venue but can get a little frigid when the fog rolls in. Lovely on an October afternoon.

There's not a bad seat in the "house" when it comes to this rather small outdoor amphitheater, but pay for the reserved seating unless you pan to get there EARLY. Some parts of the grass seating have a tremendous slope to them and you'll find yourself fighting the downhill slide all night! Be sure to dress warmly, too .. that... More

Attended niece's graduation from the psychology program here. Exactly the way on would expect a high caliber to look: outside, intimate, greek classical backdrop, and easy to see and hear asthetics.
