I have been to NJPAC many times and have always revel in the wonderful acoustics of this beautiful concert hall. I saw Chris Botti on November 14 and he was, as usual, fabulous and presented a diverse set which included jazz, orchestral picees and an almost operatic set. I love NJPAC.

One of the best halls I've been in. Good sight and sound and elegant decor. Every time I've been I've heard the New Jersey Symphony. They're well match to the acoustic.

We came here for my birthday to see the America's Got Talent auditions in New Jersey. After waiting outside to get in, we were shocked of how nice it was inside the Audiotorium. Not a lot of food or beverages offered so sneak if you can. Overall it was great.

The Dodge Poetry Festival is now presented at NJPAC. A beautiful venue with great and helpful staff. Perfect place to attend poetry readings and listen to poets discuss their work. Newark was such a welcoming city I hope to return soon

This is a superb facility with great acoustics and comfortable seating. The seats likewise have great views. The facility is close to transit and so you don't have to drive if you don't want to. We really enjoyed the performance here.

Parking is right there. The restaurant has never disappointed. The performances are quality. The acoustics are unbelievably excellent for both amplified and unamplified sound. The seating is especially comfortable. It is the gem of Newark.
