We came to see Clutch. Two adults three teenagers. It was the first concert for one of the kids. We were told we could sit in the balcony because there was no reserved seating. After watching the first two bands they told us there was reserved seating and they has just shown up. After we were forced to sit in... More

Have dinner next door before the show! Seating was excellent, not a bad seat in the place! The sound was spot on and I will definitely be looking for more shows here!! Great venue!

Not overly crowded, good seating and wonderful sound. The Bijou provides an experience that needs to be heard to appreciate.

Fun atmosphere and parking was easy. The only thing I disliked was people approaching us in the parking lot for money.

The acoustics are great. The staff is polite. We have seen many concerts here. The legroom is seriously lacking, though.

I love being able to attend ANY event at the Bijou. The productions are always varied, so just about everyone can find something they'll enjoy.

I've been to several concerts at the Bijou and have really enjoyed the venue. It only seats about 700 people so you can get a good view of the stage from almost anywhere!

The lighting and sound seem to be updated. And the interior was in good shape. As we were on the end of the row, facing... More

I attend the Chambers here. It is a small theater so you can hear the music and see the orchestra members. The seating is not cramped.
