“The Real Deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Ambience and great talent abound here. The room has fairly decent sound. You will see acts you will see nowhere else. Should be a historical landmark.

“Amazing performers, great venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We saw Cascade de Flores here in Dec 2012, booking tickets was good experience, staff very knowledgeable and very helpful and friendly. Venue is great, roomy and spacious with good sound, comfortable seats, all with good view so no big need to rush to get there early. The act we saw were so talented, we had a wonderful night - definitely will go back.

“Great Acts But a Little Sterile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Just wished they had not moved from their old location, which had a lot more charm (but fewer seats). The new space is fine technically but lacks any warmth/atmosphere.

“Acoustic music in a great venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Wonderful treasure in Berkeley, CA. The sound in the new
building (about 2 years old now) is fabulous. Raked seating and an extraordinary choice of artists each month. Music ranges from folk to bluegrass to folk rock to some classical evenings thrown in. A must for local and tourists. Downtown Berkeley across from the Berkeley Repertory Theatres, Aurora Theatre and The Jazz School (which has good dinners).
