I've seen several concerts here an the service is always nice. Even if you're seated on a lower floor, it's worth the walk up a few flights to get adult beverages. Beautiful, historic and good acoustics!

The place is beautiful and intimate however they are super strict about staying in your seats, not using your phone etc etc.. And it's all seating so there's no dancing which is not how I want to attend a concert.

I enjoy going to the "Schnitz" - the acoustics are fantastic! I have seasons tickets to the Pops series and it's so special every time we attend!

Located in downtown Portland, this hall is gorgeous and very well maintained. On another note, management of the hall keeps its booking calendar full, so entertainment is terrific in Portland! Hats off to the hall's management.

We attend concerts out of town on a regular basis.This time we saw the band Broken Bells. The sound was pretty good and our seats in the mezzanine were good as well. The band put on a good show.

The second time was for a musical concert i was main level back rows, but I felt like there's no bad seat in the house. Tip Dress up and walk the park blocks before or after the event... More

It's been kept in great repair. Love that I can hear what's going on on stage even when I'm in the washroom! I liked the balcony seating best.
