“Best Outdoor Concert Venue in Bay Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Watching a concert at the Greek as the sun sets is one of the many benefits of living in the Bay Area. Only problem is that you have to sneak in wine (they want you to buy it inside)

“WOW---no better venue in whole Bay area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This exciting, theatre in the round is the jewel in the crown of UC Berkeley. So many wonderful performers, from Dolly Parton to Train to Bonnie Raitt and on and on have performed here! The acoustics are incredible!! Note: Be sure to bring warm clothes, food, hot coffee in thermos (none available!!), a cushy pad to sit on, and blankets. You won't soon forget your experience @ the Greek!

“Great place for a concert.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Greek Theater is a lot of fun. Even if you don't pay for reserved seats (which I never do) you can get a good spot. Seats aren't super comfortable though, so it's good to bring a pillow to sit on, if you can. I've enjoyed many concerts there over the years.

“Greek at its best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

I was fortunate to experience an amazing concert at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA.
This venue is a great place to experience any concert, ballet, play or any sort of performing art form. Every seat in the house is a good one. I would say the only down side is no back support so bring a comfy seat, warm blanket and someone to enjoy the event with you. Would I go there again? YES, YES, YES...
