This is my neighborhood concert venue and I love it! They have a pretty decent lineup of up-and-coming bands plus a few big name acts from time to time. I saw Adele here for $17 before she got big. General admission is kind of pain as you have to get their early (and stand around) for a good spot, but... More

Royal Oak is ONE Cool Town, as is its' neighbor Ferndale. The ROMT is such an amazing place to see a show. Crowds are beautiful, polite, intelligent, creative and interesting. Doesn't get better. Been seeing shows Here since I was a Kid. Returned after decades of living elsewhere, and it is still the best location for large bands in a... More

This is a great place to see a concert. The location is perfect for grabbing dinner and drinks before the show.

You are eligible for a parking ticket in the city of Royal Oak even after paying to park in a public garage. I learned this the hard way in March of 2014 when I returned to my vehicle after a night on the town. It's sad to see a municipality so desperate for revenue. I doubt if I will ever... More

I've seen a few concerts here lately -- this is an awesome venue. It's big enough that you never feel over-crowded, and small enough that it preserves a real feeling of intimacy and camaraderie…also great for photos & videos. You can very near the stage, if you so desire!

I wish there was an option for zero stars because that is what I feel is deserved for the experience I had there last Friday night. We had tickets to see the Impractical Jokers show at 10pm February 21st, for barstool seats. Shouldn't have been a problem, except the rows of seats were placed so closely together that we were...

I saw Jimmy Eat World last night at this venue. It was my first time and I was pretty impressed. Everyone moved thru the line smoothly, they check ID's for 21+ before doors open, this makes things much easier! The venue isn't too small or large, just right for a more intimate concert setting. I didn't feel squished or too... More

We went to see Alabama Shakes last night. There were two opening bands. Doors opened at 8:00, which was a bit late IMO for a Wed. night. Alabama Shakes didn't even come out until well after 10:00. Not sure if that was a venue or band issue, but I was disappointed with the timing and sick of waiting around. Keep... More

I have had many great times at the ROMT, great local bands, friends and some beverages. This venue allows you to get close to the action, or slip in the corner and disappear.
