We recently attended a Boz Scaggs performance. The Sunset is small enough for everyone to have a good seat and decent acoustics. Easy in, nice seats, easy out.

We have been to numerous concerts and events here. The remodel is great. There are lots of volunteers to help you find your way around. Parking is available, as are snacks at intermission. It's easy to see the seating availability and purchase tickets online.

We have gone to the Sunset Cultural Center. The building itself has nice architecture. They put on many shows from ballet, symphony, to tribute bands. There is free parking at their main parking lot. We generally look at their web site and/or face book page to see what shows are going on.

Just one of the best concert halls I have ever been to. the design of the building inside and out is very attractive and accommodating. Seating is comfortable; the hall seems intimate and good views from most seats. Acoustics are great!

Wonderful acoustics and a beautiful setting. We've seen several concerts here and have enjoyed the quality of sound every time. We usually sit on the upper balcony.

We attended the Carmel Bach Festival for the first time and this was a lovely venue for the Bach St. Matthew Passion. The setting also had a lovely feeling of a hometown, personal event, with friendly volunteers assisting.

We attended a concert for the annual Bach Festival. The staff was friendly and helpful in getting us tickets for the popular event. The concert itself was delightful and held in the beautiful church at the center.

Acoustically the best venue in California. 800 comfortable seats with knowledgable volunteer staff. Sad refreshments though

I first got acquainted with this place as my daughters took gymnastics here. Later we attended concerts, which were lovely. Double triple plus. Loved it. An added benefit was that sometimes while they had gymnastics (of course other times I'd watch), I'd walk the short blocks down to the white sand beach and enjoy the purest expression of nature I...
