I was surprised that we were seeing a music concert in a Synagogue, but it was a great venue. The building is beautiful and full of character. Some of the columns were a visual problem, but as long as you didn't sit behind one, the...More

This was our second time attending a concert here and it's quite the setting for live music. Pews, stained glass and a stage that puts the musicians up close and personal. Who can beat that? Good sight lines from just about anywhere on the main...More

Wonderful historic site for a more intimate concert setting with decent acoustics. Fantastic Negrito and his band was awesome. $15 parking after 5 p.m. available across the street and plenty of good restaurants within walking distance.

An active synagogue and events center, the Sixth and I is an beautiful faculty with a number of programs developed independently and with local organizations. A tour of the building and recounting of its history is well worth the time.

Attended Lore Podcast Live and was blown away by the venue. While it has a decent capacity, it has a very intimate feel. It's also straight up gorgeous. The event staff has everything down to a science so there was none of the typical disorganization...More

We attended a Politics and Prose event in this lovely venue. While it has a fairly large capacity, the synagogue is an intimate setting for a lecture or book signing. We were fortunate to have the opportunity to attend a conversation with Khizr Kahn discussing...More

A friend asked us to attend a lecture here, and we were pleasantly surprised by the venue. Although it's an historic synagogue, everyone is welcome. Because this is an old house of worship. the bench seating could be more comfortable, but otherwise, this is a...More
