Packs a big punch

Small venue but overall fairly good. Staff was nice. Ive seen 3 concerts here all of different musical variety. Very loud for a rock show so make sure you pack your ear plugs.

This venue is perfect for small shows! It is in a cool little area of Orlando, be prepared to pay for parking, but there are plenty of garages for $5. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The venue is small, long bar on one wall with the stage on the other wall. There is a section in front of the... More

Awesome time if you don't mind getting drinks spilled on your feet and the occasional B.O swarming your senses, music was good for being in a tight environment. Vibe was good, but the homeless guys working the men's bathroom swindled 1$ from me every time I tried to go to the bathroom. Drinks were awesome and the bartenders were friendly.... More

Saw the band DAWES ( perfection) there last night. The bartenders were great, the sound was perfect, not loud for this small intimate venue. I got a little overheated and stepped outside where the bouncers gave me a chair and went and got me ice water! I was back inside in 5 minutes..great place to see a band up close... More

I'm NOT exaggerating with my title! I wanted to go to a concert for my birthday (March 12), so I decided to come here and see Tonight Alive and Set It Off! It was awesome! I've been to many concert venues and this one is the best by far! The venue itself is just the right size. I like to... More

My wife and I went to see my favorite band on Friday night, Less Than Jake. I've seen LTJ there a couple times and it's actually always been a great sound quality. No different this time. The concert was phenomenal and LTJ put on a great show. Couple minor issues. The drinks here are not the cheapest. I don't mind... More

I've been here quite a few times in my life. I don't remember ever being disappointed. You have a good view of the performers and if you get drinks the hour of the opening, its really cheap.

I Surprised my teen daughter (14) tonight with tickets to see Frank Iero as she loved the show here back in March. Was happily surprised with the small venue. Standing on the steps above "the pit" left us front and center of the stage with a great view to also take pictures. Unfortunately she started to not feel well (maybe... More

This is a downtown club that has live music almost, if not every night. The variety of bands that come through here are very diverse too. They have everything from local to regional to national bands that play here.

Have been to a couple of shows here and I love this little venue! You get a great up-close view of your favorite artist and not a bad view anywhere.
