The theatre was set up with folding chairs for the comedy show I attended. I felt it was difficult to find my seats without the help of ushers, which they did have plenty helping. The seats are metal folding chairs so it makes for people moving their chairs around and intoxicated people standing up and knocking their chairs over which... More

This venue is set up in tiers on the main floor with a small balcony. The sound was great but its an odd setup.

Went for concert that had general admission and tables. We reserved a table and had very comfortable seats with easy in/out access, plus bar service. We notices some folks surprised to see no seating, so just a reminder that general admission generally means standing....so pay and get the tables if that's not for you! Classy interior, well-staffed bar, and very... More

Truly horrible venue and staffing. Freezing cold (all requests for improvement ignored), with arctic drafts coming from the back of the house from doors in the lobby, metal folding chairs, stench of chlorinated cleaning material permeating the frigid air. So cold, no coats were removed where we were sitting. The performer arrived half hour late, but could overlook that IF... More

We've enjoyed many great concerts here. It's large enough to draw good acts and small enough to be up close and personal. Seating can be a challenge if not reserved, but crowds tend to be happy and friendly and most everyone is there for a good time, parking decks fill up so get there early and grab a bite to... More

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!
