They have a nice midsize stage, great sound system, food & gift shop. If you're not interested in the beautiful spiral staircase, there is also an elevator. The stacks look amazing lit up at night!

A short 10-minute walk from the Sands Casino, a must-see for the historical old architecture and steel stacks.

We went for the dinner and a show experience at Muskfest Cafe. If I was reviewing the place for the show alone, I would give it a 5/5, because the acoustics and the intimacy of the venue is top-notch. But when I'm forced to pay a $10 minimum per person on food and drink, I have to consider it just... More

We attended Musikfest here, and had a blast. Parking was overcrowded, but once we were finally there- we had a great time. We tried the grilled corn, based on a volunteer's recommendation, and it was fantastic- messy- but worth it. The SteelStacks were beautiful when lit up at night. The bands were diverse and talented. I would recommend attending this... More

A sight to see. It is heartwarming to see that this beautiful old girl with such a rich and tumultuous history has been preserved. A lot more is still needed but what has been done is impressive. Worth a drive by if you are in the area.

I have been a regular visitor to SteelStacks, we enjoy movies, and fantastic shows at the Musikfest Café. The acoustics at the Café are fantastic, we've seen shows as diverse as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Almost Queen, Tony and Tina's wedding, and in May we will be seeing Spyro Gyra!!! The atmosphere is incredible with the lighted blast furnace in... More

We love SteelStacks! The Frank Banko movie theatres are first rate and show the films you may not find in the local multiplexes. And The MusikFest Cafe is great! So far we've seen Mary Chapin Carpenter, Dicky Betts, Colin Quinn, and a few other acts and every show was terrific. The room is small enough so you are never too... More

instead of tearing down the steel mill, it was transformed into an amazing cultural space. i am a native and so proud of my city for making the stacks a living museum! don't miss the chance to visit if you're only in town for a short time.

We very much enjoy the cinema at Steel Sacks. No kids talking during the movie, good film selection, and you can enjoy an adult beverage or food in your seat. Nice. My only qualm is that the food is overpriced and the selection rather limited. Also, the parking makes for a long walk.
