Very dissapointed.. The ticket said 6pm but the shows started about 7.30 ( the first band ) and Lindsay Sterling around 8.30 pm. With 93 degrees outside and no shade it's crazy to say the least. Parking is a JOKE. You have to drive almost a mile away and wait in a LONG line to get thorugh a small parking... More

Went to see a show last night. The ticket said 6:00pm. It did NOT say, "Doors open at 6pm." We thought we'd have dinner after the show since it was early. Nope Show began at 7:30 and ended at 10:30. The parking was a mile away (no exaggeration) and cost $10.00. There was a bus to shuttle us over but... More

The Masquerade is an Atlanta institution and, fortunately, the neighborhood is catching up to it. Downstairs has more of a club feel and upstairs is a small, open concert hall. From edgy new bands to smaller tier older ones, this a a great place to be up close. For example, we've seen Trivium, Queensryche and KMFDM here.

We travel up to ATL to see shows at The Masquerade all the time and we've never had a bad experience. The venue is broken up into 3 levels: Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory. Each hall has a decent bar selection (both beer and liquor) with your expected concert venue prices ($6 for well drinks) but the bartenders are consistently awesome.... More

My husband and I went to see concert here and we did enjoy the show itself but this place has some major issues with safety. It is an old sawmill and I get that, but the way it is set up if there was ever a fire it's a deathtrap. I was very nervous while we were there and was... More

The venue itself is impressive with 3 levels of halls for concerts - all aptly named, "Heaven" (upstairs) - "Hell" (downstairs) and "Purgatory" which seems to be for the under 21 crowd. Lots of music to be heard here and the best part are the acoustics. They somehow made the drummer sound like he was right in front of me... More

I have had both good and bad experiences here. It has a unique atmosphere and a great time for the most part. I like the variety. They have several stages/bars with different bands. The old historic type building makes the venue stand out, more so than others. However, I have to question the safety side of it. Especially when the... More

I love going to this venue, because the staff has always been willing to help and I have never had a bad experience. If you get there early enough you can park on the street right beside the venue and it is easy to get out. It has that old time feel which I love.

If you want to see a good metal show, chances are, it's at the masquerade. Is it the best venue? hell no. But go anyway because that's the only place in Atlanta that these great bands seem to play while on tour.

I was there for the Jamey Johnson and Merle Haggard show. Awesome set up except for one thing. The beer vendors do not take credit cards and at $6-7 per can we ran out of cash very quick. So be prepared.
