Very Very small venue. If you want a beer you will wait in line over 30 minutes, if you have to go to bathroom you will wait over 20 minutes . You also can't drink the beer in the venue. Way not worth it

Wonderful small venue
Nov 2019 • Couples
Not knowing what to expect, we decided to catch a show at the Egg. What a pleasant surprise. We were in the smaller of the two theaters - maybe about 500 seats. Great acoustics and not a bad seat in the house. Very intimate concert setting. A bonus is the on site parking which is only $5.00. It’s in the same building as the concert halls and the elevator from the garage takes you right to the lobby of the theater. (Take the exit for the concert venue and the “visitors garage” is right there) Overall great experience.

Nice building- tour not interesting for kids or teens
Aug 2019 • Family
We wanted to like this building but the tour was boring.not for kids. The shape of the building is interesting and thats all. also not happy that I didn't know where to take a photo in front of the building. TBH, maybe they disclosed on the tour but my kids wanted to die from boredom so we had to exit early.

Awesome venue for a concert.
Aug 2019
The Hart Auditorium is an awesome place for concerts. We got to enjoy Harry Connick Jr. and it was like being in a club. He and his band said they enjoyed playing at smaller venues and seemed to be having fun.

Albany's entertainment gem

After seeing over 50 shows, I can safely say The Egg is a wonderful venue to see live music. Having the option of two separate venues is also a plus for those lesser known and/or acoustic leaning acts that work better in a smaller more intimate setting.

I came for a business conference and it worked out very well. It has a good set up, it is clean and pretty nice. The parking garage is easy also.

My wife and I and another couple went to the beetles imitation concert. Not 4 but 5 stars. What a show. In the larger of the two theaters. Very comfortable seats and lotsa legroom. Sit to the right. Closer to the exits and bathrooms. We parked below in the garage and the lift takes you right to the theater for a mere $5. Excellent acoustics and the theater being not too big is intimate. Check the website for schedule of event. I’ve been to the Doors tribute band and Felix Cavaleri of the rascals. Great night out and reasonably priced. Go!!!

Not a bad seat in the place
Nov 2018 • Couples
We saw a comedy show. Upon reading the reviews, we were nervous about not finding parking and how much of a walk to and from in the outside weather. So earlier in the day we drove down to check it out. We didn’t take the interstate, instead we went in the back way. Very confusing. Couldn’t find the entrance to park. When going back that night for show, we took the interstate and it brought us right to the parking garage! Yes that easy! So make sure your coming in from the interstate. Parking was $5. You take the elevator up to main level, then walk a small ways to another set of elevators to the venue. There are staff in elevators and all around to answer your questions. They do have drinks and snacks in lobby, none of which is allowed inside. Water only. The seats are great in all sections! Plenty of leg room. At the end same thing, staff helping direct you if needed. You simply drive out one way, and it loops you right back on interstate. So easy! Hope this helps the confusion in parking:) wonderful friendly staff and clean unique venue!

Perfect venue!
Oct 2018 • Couples
View and sound are so excellent. Not a bad seat in the house. Perfect venue for musical guests. I have seen Ken Mo, Robert Cray, Boz Skaggs, Leon Russell, Lyle Lovett, Leon Russell, and many others. Acoustics are really great!

Best Venue!
Mar 2018 • Couples
Two halls - one just less than 500, the other just under 1000, where you can see and hear from every seat. Nicely sloped. One concert I was in the second row, and was closer to the main singer than the bass player on the other side of the stage. Parking for $5 underground right there, with an elevator up. Beverages (adult ones, too) available before many concerts. DOWNSIDE: hallways to restrooms narrow. Long lines to them sometimes, especially at intermission, because not enough receptacles. Doorways not well placed. Old building code, I guess.
