I really like the Palladium and the Side Door. The table setup at the Side Door is just like a night club. They have wine and beer if you want and it's not expensive. They have their own parking lot...and that's a real plus!!

Brings many excellent productions to our area. An important civic asset. I have seen outstanding Bluegrass (Claire Lynch) and Scottish performers (Battlefield Band) that I couldn't have seen elsewhere. And the best of all - the highlight - was the American Stage production of "August - Osage County" - a most memorable production.

I love to visit this wonderful venue, I have seen ballets, musicals, chamber music and jazz in this beautiful building. It's a small auditorium as far as concert spaces go but that's part of the charm, there are no bad seats, parking is free and tickets are always affordable. There's something for everyone so find something you like and go.

With added air conditioning and an 21st c. electrical and lighting system enjoy entertainment in this intimate upstairs space. There is no bad seat. Try a St. Petersburg Opera performance or two. Downstairs is a night club. Come to see modern jazz folks like Najar working with retired greats on bass or piano. Parking can be a challenge.

The Palladium has been refurbished to it's former glory and it's a great experience to step back in time. We're locals and we love it!

We've attended several Blues concerts there and make it a point each year to attend the After Hour concerts there during the BluesFest. What a great intimate setting for both performers and spectators. Dancing in the aisles is always in style! Whenever Lauren Mitchell is there for an album release concert we will drop whatever we are doing and drive... More

We were there too see James Von Praage and we were not disappointed. The show was great and the venue itself was quite unique and rustic. I understand it was built in 1925 and I loved the style. The sound carried good and it was a full house. The only thing I think they should improve on is more seating... More

It's an old venue, so the seats are not the most comfortable and there are sections where the view and sound are imperfect, but, in general, this is a very respectable venue for small concerts. The "side door" has a cabaret style arrangement. Parking is a bit of a challenge if you don't get there early.

All the seat are good. Prices are reasonable to the concert or event happening. Location is downtown St. Petersburg but not a hard place to find parking for. Like most of this area's venues it is small and friendly. Again if there's an event or show happening here I would strongly say GET TICKETS.

I love the jazz and blues series here. Liz Pennock and Dr. Blues are a "don't miss" show. Both the Side Door and Hough Hall are intimate, acoustically perfect venues to experience outstanding music. The building is a treat in itself - the renovation was done lovingly and with attention to detail. You can get tickets for as little as... More
