They handled the crowd well, giving us wrist bands while waiting in line for the doors to open. It never seemed too crowded anytime during the standing room concert. You can get drinks downstairs at the... More

We have seen several concerts at this location and each time have been shocked at the attendance, the audience participation and the flexible staff.

The opera house is a great, quaint venue with great sound and a very convivial atmosphere. It's a pity is closing.

There's no opera there. It's been converted for stage shows and dining. There is a nice wine/whisky bar on the ground floor and it is historic looking.

City Winery has turned it into cabaret thereat, with food and wine and very hard chairs. That said, I still love it. There are a wide variety of good shows and the food is more than acceptable. It's a... More
