“great for family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

I was like a child myself with my grandchild in the art area. We spent a few hours just doing art projects. Venus was working the day we were there, and she and the two gentlemen who were there helped so much!

“A Good Time Was Had By ALL!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

I recently drove my mom and two of her friends from St. Louis to see Il Volo in Nashville. My only complaint was the $20 pre-paid valet parking fee. My mom needed a wheelchair and most venues in St. Louis will give you free or reduced parking if you have a handicap tag. However, people could not have been nicer when we arrived. They made sure we were escorted to the elevator and taken to the correct area. I surprised my mom by buying tickets in the first set of box seats on the stage. She was unable to take the wheelchair all the way. She had to get out and climb 4 or 5 steps up and walk 5 feet and 4-5 steps down in the hallway to get to the seats. The view was worth it!! After the show they met her at the steps and helped her navigate them and had her wheelchair waiting.

“Beautiful venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Saw a concert, not a bad seat in the room. So classes and elegant, public parking across the street, otherwise it's the standard $25/6 hrs. I would recommend seeing any show here.

“Symphony View Seats-what a treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We sat in the "symphony view" seats for the Brandi Carlile concert, and it felt like we were insiders who got a secret extra show. Sitting so close we could see the set list was awesome, not to mention getting to watch the director. The venue is beautiful and the staff very welcoming. We did think the sound quality is probably not as good in the symphony view seats, but we thought it was a worthwhile trade. We enjoyed grabbing a drink and sitting in the garden before the show. It was such a little oasis.

“Pink Floyd show was good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

My wife and I enjoyed this show. They played all the songs from the "Dark Side of the Moon" album and then played a lot of the bigger hits from "The Wall". The lasers were disappointing because the ceiling in the hall is not flat and provided a poor surface for that part of the show. The guitar solos were not on track with the actual ones in the original songs. It seems some liberty was given to the lead guitarist to play his own. Also, the lead singers voice was flat at times.
