The restaurant is good. It is a well patrolled area, by mounted police often, with great underground parking across the street. Every New Jerseyian should visit. Sign up and have... More

NJPAC is a beautiful gem in the heart of Newark NJ. We have the best in entertainment and local performing arts. I attend on average 4-6 shows per year and wished I could do more. Great venue.

In my opinion the finish stage in NJ . I 've been to several theaters in this state and not one compares with NJPAC. Great seating, clear sound, perfect lighting, and a wonderful restaurant. Parking is never a problem And great security. And if you don't want to eat there, the Ironbound part of Newark as a numerous amount of... More

First time I was ever here . . . .I found this venue to be clean and very friendly to guest. ALL of the employees were welcoming and POLITE. These are not qualities you see from other venues.

I used to go there some time ago. I love this Art Center. They offer very good artist all the time. I remember a Flamenco performance , it was very good. Performers they present are really good and prin=ces are affordable.

This is a good concert venue with first rate performances, both classical and popular. The Center is modern and attractive, and close to other cultural sites in the safe center of Newark. It's easily reached by PATH.

Awesome place to see a show. Really nice theater with excellent seating - not a bad seat in the house. Very classy looking place. The only problem was that there should have been more bartenders on duty. Can't wait to go back!
