Take in a show!

A wonderful performing arts center and easily accessible, right on South Broad Street, a few blocks from city hall. The acoustics are terrific!

The seating was great, however, the acoustics could have been a bit better. The location was not too far from our hotel.

The Kimmel Center is in the heart of the city. Plenty of restaurants to eat at before show. Afterwards, plenty of establishments to get a nightcap afterwards.

Never had a bad experience yet, going to a show at the Kimmel Center. They host a variety of different types of performances, and the theater itself is beautiful. Great for a date night!

This is a beautiful building for beautiful music. This is the home for the Philadelphia Orchestra. I love the visuals as you enter this building and when you are seated it only gets better. The sound is great wherever you sit. A must see and hear when in Philadelphia.

This is the premier venue for classical music in Philadelphia. While it is debated whether it is better than the old hall there is a range of programing over the year to suit all interests. If visiting be sure to check the papers to see what is on.

My cousin and his bride had their wedding their last night. The facility, staff, food were exemplary! Not to mention the complimentary valet parking. Each and every member of the staff were very courteous and bent over backwards to make sure that every guest was comfortable and well taken care of. The food from the hor derves through the dinner...
