I love here for gigs, not overly huge but not quite intimate either. Ideal place to see the stage wherever you are standing or sitting, the sound is great. Easy to get to and from toilets. The bar gets busy before gigs but still get served quickly.

First time visiting The Music Hall was for Sabaton & Alestorm in February 2016. The venue is absolutely stunning as you enter and a great traditional venue (How the O2 Academy venues should be!) I love the original ceiling and the large grand feel of the venue for a venue holding 1500 people. Sound and the event was great. Love... More

This is a beautiful building with space for a cafe and a large theatre hall with balcony. Many excellent shows, orchestras and singers come here. It is undergoing renovation and is closed for a year.

Before refurbishment the Music Hall was a great venue for anything musical. The acoustics are good. The bar facilities work well. I am so looking forward to the refurbished launch. It promises to be fantastic based on how good it ws before and the press releases. Bring it on.

Beautiful traditional music hall with lovely architectural details and good acoustics. Staff are friendly and the venue is generally well managed. Only downside for me is finding something that I want to go see at a reasonable cost. Listed on Union street it's easily accessible by public transport however parking spaces close by are hard to find.

A beautiful venue with some lovely music. A big range of acts. Helpful staff and a bar at the break. There is a coffee shop inside. The gluten-free options are limited but tasty. It is closed for renovation until 2018 but once it reopens, well worth a visit!

The music hall tends to have more music shows than the theatre. The seating is good and it is always warm and clean. There is also a lovely coffee shop which is open during the day to the public.

The outside is impressive with its huge pillars. The building is well set out for concerts and there is a really nice coffee shop with home bakes, which is lovely to have coffee and a chat with friends.
