One of my favorite venues in Asheville!

Great place to grab a show! One of the best night spots in Asheville. Right in the downtown area, it's walking distance to shopping and restaurants.

If you love music this is the place to go. From bluegrass to The Breakfast Club (80's). I always go to their website because you never know who's going to perform. We gave even seeing headliners their such as country artist.Big n Rich

Had so much fun at glass animals and Ayla nereo here! The setting was wonderful and the light shows. Would recommend everyone to see a show here I will be going back for purity ring in September! Will have to say some people that go are rude as hell but they didn't seem like they were from asheville. Good drinks.... More

Any chance I get that a band is playing here that I like, I go. This is the only venue around me that is still nice. It's not too big. It's big enough to hold a good amount of people yet still be an intimate experience. The alcohol prices are down to earth and even cheap! There is no price... More

Great place for a concert, but don't expect a high class experience. I don't mind standing, that is part of the experience. I Love the music, but biggest issue is no air conditioning. Maybe they can't afford it, but I feel bad when every band that gets on stage says "oh my gosh it is SO hot up here!"

We have been to the Orange Peel several times and absolutely love seeing shows there. There is a great view of the stage from everywhere and the acoustics are great. The large ceiling fan certainly makes it more comfortable. The venue is also very clean. One of the best music venues around!

The Walkmen and Jack White Both great shows. Asheville being one of the brewingest towns in all the land definitely adds to what makes this venue great for headliners. I don't live in the area, so I'm not sure what a typical wknd is like.

I am writing this so that others will know what to expect if they decide to go to the Orange Peel for a show. I find it very uncomfortable so choose you clothing wisely: it was very hot inside despite the giant fan on the ceiling (perhaps the air was not working?) There is no place to sit, yes, there...

I drove down to the Peel from Philadelphia, PA to see Peter Hook & the Light. Great venue, friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommend. It's a favorite!
