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.

This building looks great inside. No more dingy bars for gigs. There's only one bar so it gets busy but if you're at a show with an interval, they'll take your interval order and it'll be ready for you. Acoustics are great although I have only ever been here with a standing ticket (for gigs) or a ground floor seated... More

This place is lovely inside however, the chairs are pretty basic and not much room between rows either. Luckily we were at the side and there was no one in front of us, so we didn't have people trying to pass us with little space. Also the toilet facilities really need improving. There are only around 6 toilets in the... More

I had only ever attended this venue for Highland dancing competitions so this was my first concert. It is a lovely decorated old building with a sweeping balcony. We were standing almost directly in front of the stage - great view. Must've had great views from the balcony too. Would love to attend another concert here.
