Now back with shows almost nightly,mother do a great job. Good locals ever an full bar downstairs, general seating for shows, not large, on quiet side street off Patton Ave surrounded by local churches. No food but nice place as are within walking distance, one is the Havana restaurant just 20 steps away.

Happened onto this place on Valentine's Day after seeing posters for a Patsy Cline tribute band (The Sweet Dreamers). It's a top-notch, clean and modern venue. Intimate setting. Nice bar. Great price. The band was excellent!

Saw Deja Vu - a great Crosby Stills & Nash tribute band from Ga at the Altamont Theater. The sound was great, Can't be live music in a small setting.

What a miserable experience staying in the incredibly noisy condos above the Altamont Theatre. We had to listen to an entire concert through the floor and walls - were never alerted upon renting that we were walking into the least peaceful place in Asheville and would have to suffer through an entire concert we didn't want to hear. Street noise,... More

This is an intimate space for music. Good variety of performances. Only wish they would bring in some good women's music. One of the few music venues in town where you can sit.

We recently held our wedding reception at the Altamont Theater as well as booked it as the lodgings for myself and my husband as well as the majority of my family from out of town. The accommodations were well above our expectations and we were so pleased. The location is perfect, (middle of downtown Asheville) and within walking distance to... More

We say Roxie Watson here and we were impressed by the sound, intimacy, and facilities here. You would not be disappointed by any show that you would be interested in taking in at this venue. Reasonable drink prices.

This venue has optimal acoustics. It is a nominal size with no bad seats at all. If you want to actually hear the music (instruments and vocals), this is the place to go. The location is great, too.
