Emo's was one of the better places I've ever seen a concert. It's small enough you don't feel far away from the stage anywhere in the place. The bartenders are friendly. There are plenty of restrooms, so there are no long lines to worry about.

I like the small, intimate atmosphere. Reminds me of the way Armadillo used to make me feel, standing next to the stage within an arm's reach of the musicians. Great acoustics and easy in and out. I'll go there again for sure

The best thing about the venue is that it is large and spacious. You can see the band play from anywhere in the venue. The sound overall is avg. Not bad mind you. But very little acoustical thought went into the bldg. design. Oh, and...More

Went to a show with some friends to the new Emo's location and the layout is well put together; with an upper level (that has a bar on both levels), it's a great, functioning space to experience a show and provides additional opportunities/views to see...More
