The Cain's hasn't changed much since Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Bob Wills and all the other famous old country artists played there. Their old pictures still grace its walls and the wood dance floor still gets its share of boot-scooting. The biggest change would be that it is air conditioned now and features lots of different types of music not... More

My first visit to the ballroom did not disappoint. I especially love the intimate atmosphere. Glass Animals rocked it out!

I saw my second concert at the Cain's this month. This time, we got tickets on the Mezzanine; last time we were on the floor. Cain's only hosts popular acts so it is wall-to-wall people on the floor. It just depends on what you like. Personally, I liked sitting in the mezzanine, enjoying a private bathroom and bar, even if... More

Great venue with lots of history. There's a decent bar, clean restrooms and even a few bleachers if you need to grab a seat during the show. Love this place!

I've been quite a few times for concerts and I always have a blast!! It's basically all standing/a dance floor, but to the side there are benches for sitting! I'd suggest this place for teenagers, young adults, and above!! Little kids may feel overwhelmed. It's a good time!! I had my prom there in high school too!

I have been to a least 3 different events at the Cains Ballroom: once for the LIverpool Legends and twice to see my son and his bands (heavy metal electric). An event like the LIverpool Legends does not have regular seating (the seats are placed there in rows, for that event only). Other events that I attended did not have... More

Unfortunately we did not see any performance at Cains but the guy in the ticket office allowed us in to see this wonderful building, with its walls covered in past performers. It must be a great place for artists and one can imagine what it would have been like with the sprung floor covered with dancers

We recently saw Ben Harper play at Cain's Ballroom while visiting from Dallas. As far as small indoor venues go, few can compare. The sound is excellent and it didn't appear as though there could be a bad spot in the joint. Cain's is located downtown and situated near several bars and restaurants. If you get to the show early... More
