My favorite venue to hear music in Portland

This is a beautifully restored hall with great acoustics...and the perfect size... so there isn't a bad seat in the house (at least not that I have experienced, anyway).

I've been going to concerts here since it was The Paramount Theatre. Great venue. So many great memories of going to shows there over the years. This place is so beautiful - ornate in every sense of the word. Look around at all the detail that went into the architecture. You'll be amazed!

Have been to many concerts here- from country western to opera singers- all seats are good.. parking can be a bit of a hassle.

Great place in the grand old style of the early 20th century. Not a bad seat in the house. Stellar acoustics throughout. Unbelievable architecture!

What a wonderful old and historic concert hall in the center city of Portland Oregon. Last evening I was walking by the old building and I saw a sign in the marquee saying Moody Blues in concert. As it was early no one was around to give any information if the concert had past our was going to take place... More

Concession choices aren't up to par. The Schnitzer is quite a beautiful place and I would expect anything offered to be of that standard. At least they have snacks or drinks if not out of certain soda flavors. No need to fret...lots of places nearby to grub :)

The Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall is a beautiful venue, but I think it could use a renovation. The seats are pretty old. It's a huge hall with about 3,000 seats, so if you don't seat close, it can be hard to see. It doesn't have a very steep gradient between the rows, so it's best to sit on a center... More

This beautiful 1920's vintage concert hall has had many transformations from a Vaudeville Hall, Movie Palace, 1960's Rock Venue, and to the now refurbished home of the Oregon Symphony. The acoustic is as good as the best halls of the world and ther is hardly a bad seat in the house.

Love the interior, which has been kept as classic old-time Portland. There is not necessarily a bad seat in the house. Parking can be sketchy. If you can take MAX, I highly suggest it. Great list of shows on their website. You can catch dinner and then a show, as it is located close to many great restaurants and food... More
