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.

It was worth the trip from California. This is the second time we went to this venue and I would go... More

This is one of my favorite place to see a concert. I love the balconies and the intricate work on it. I love architecture so this is a nice place to see a concert!

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.

A well maintained and historic theatre and art museum. The concert hall does not have a bad seat. A must visit just for the art.

Pretty hall with decent acoustics, but if you're from Chi, NY, Cleve, prepare to be underwhelmed. Also, Portlanders give standing O's to every performer, worthy or not.

Wonderful concert hall for seeing BOM with friends. Within walking distance to Portland Art Museum and Portlandia. Parking across the street was convenient.

The ambiance of the Schnitz is impressive with artistic architecture and amenities of a bygone era. An evening of amazing music and the atmosphere is enchanting. The theater is surrounded by... More
