Great place for a concert...small enough that everyone gets an up close view. Old style building. Bathrooms need some updating and a couple added. Accomodates all ages

It's disgusting, the building's interior was once grand, now only in tatters and the floor sticks to your feet (not the other way around).

Great place to see a show. The sound was great. The drinks were not over priced. We got to the show early and got a table in the balcony which a waitress kept an eye on our drinks and always made sure to see if we wanted more. We had a good time and would come back.

Nice venue. Usually cheap tickets. Cold beers. What more do you want? Get there early and pick a spot by the bar...

We saw Pat Green here awhile ago and loved it - fun place! Small venue and very personable - the sound is awesome!

One of my very favorite places to see a band. Good amount of floor space in front of the stage, big bar and open balcony with seating and tables upstairs.

The Blue Note is not as big as a huge outdoor atmosphere. It is standing room only in the bottom in front of the stage and theater style seating on the second floor. Plus there are some tables near the bar. They have decently priced beer. I have so much more fun at shows here than at a larger place.... More

See a show, any show at The Blue Note. Catch the major headliners and yet to be headliners in a vintage, historic movie hall. You name the band, they probably played here at some point. Great sounds light and selection of beers. A don't miss in Columbia.

I have been to many concerts over the years. I recently went to the Blue Note to see Shaman's Harvest. This was my first time at this establishment. I was surprised. Granted, this is in the college town of Columbia. This bar was rough looking. It is a very small, intimate place to catch a concert. The sound was not... More

Concerts are held here frequently, and it does not matter where you are standing, you are close to the stage. This is the best venue I have attended, and usually you get to meet the bands!
