Great re-use of the old Bethlehem Steel property. It's a nice ace to relax with a drink and listen to some music. Real concerts too!

The Steel stacks are a wonderful place to visit. A very good place if you want to hear super good music, admire the old steel stacks basking in multi-colored lights or catch a movie. Not for small children as the casino is near by (walking distance). Good shopping at the outlets. Bethlehem area is full of history.

If you like industrial architecture and modern art, this is an incredible place to visit. They have free concerts in the summer with the backdrop of the old blast furnaces.

Yesterday I took the steel stacks walking tour. It was very informative. Having grown up in the area I thought I would know a lot of the things I was going to hear from our guide Kathy Z, but I was wrong. Kathy was full of information and the entire tour was very interesting. I would recommend everyone take this... More

Excellent tour of the rise and fall of Bethlehem Steel. Interesting stories, photos, movie, and architecture of the remains of the once grand facility. Near the Arts Quest Building, close to Sands Casino & shopping. Make a day of it!

Steel Stacks is one of my favorite stories of collapse and rebirth. The old Bethlehem Steel property was closed and turning into a rusted hulk when it was repurposed by the organization that runs MusikFest. The grounds and some of the old buildings have been renovated into an elegant special events site complete with movie theatre, several music venues, hotel,... More

This is awesome, I have never seen anything quite like it, and it just blew me away. I went twice while on my short trip to PA, once at night and once to see it during the day. I also had a local with me, who knew a lot more about it, so I understood what all was included and... More

Steel Stacks has so much going on. We love to go to the free concerts at the Levitt Pavilion in front of the steel stacks. What a great evening, take your lawn chairs and enjoy the music. You can buy food and drinks there and they even have a dog section. There are 2 movie theaters, a gift shop, and... More

You might visit businesses here, come to a special concert, walk over from the casino or high end shopping, or bring your kids to the playground. We just enjoyed our hobby- taking photographs. The massive structures and empty buildings are very interesting.

This was a steel works which has long been shut and derelict, it has been reinvented as an arts/gig venue with a cinema and restaurants. The backdrop is impressive and a fantastic insightful use of industrial heritage bringing the place back to life. This venue is part of the Bethlehem Music Fest which has a great line-up in August, well... More
