We have enjoyed several shows, the most recent in 2019, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Varied selection of entertainment and most every seat is a winner. Keep live entertainment in Wilmington alive and attend a show soon. Reasonable pricing.

Great venue, good selection of shows, moderately priced Be wary of some seats that are obstructed view behind columns - can still see most of stage Bar tenders are volunteers and horrendously slow Start promptly at 8pm and end by 10pm generally

This venue is gorgeous. Took my daughter to her very first concert ever last fall to see Post Modern Jukebox. The band was really good, but equally as great were the acoustics and the sheer elegance of this facility, it is truly a gem. I...More

Casual. People dress in anything between jeans and dressy. Most seem to dress on the nice casual side. Nice slacks or skirt for women. Khakis and a button down for men and you will be dead center.
