Concert and dinner at the Speak Easy upstairs
Mar 2020 • Friends
Attended several concerts here and while the venue is dated and full of nostalgia, it’s always neat to see that they really did a nice job in upkeep. Seats are comfortable and the Speak Easy restaurant and var upstairs is a wonderful treat. A must visit.

A great place to see your favorite band !
Oct 2019
Any seat is a good seat to see the show. The staff are freindly to the ticket holders and are great hosts for the bands as well. The theatre is in a great location, and easy to get to. I have seen many shows there. I can to catch the bands I want to see, that pass through the area here. Only one hour from Rockford, the trip is pleasant, and the traffic is not bad. There is a restaurant upstairs by reservation only (have not tried it yet, but will on one of these visits).

Great venue

Saw Richard Marx acoustic concert, it was great! Heard this theater is getting a little help/update and that’s sure needed in the bathrooms. Could use some updating in other areas too ...lighting, carpet, etc but overall a good place.

Mark Farner/Chuck Negron show

The Arcada is a must go spot to see live music!!! Not too big---all seats are good. The owner, Ron, and the staff are all very accommodating and friendly. All types of music. The drink lines get long and its a tight area by bar and restrooms, but everyone is having fun so noone cares! Concert tickets can be pricey but the shows have always been worth it!! LOVE THIS PLACE!

great venue
Dec 2019
What a nice experience. We saw Leonid and Friends here. The sound was fantastic, clear without being overbearingly loud. The seats were comfortable. Ron has made many upgrades in the past year and is continuing to update (bathrooms next). I will be back as will the group we went with. Good value on the ticket prices also. Eat at Crazy Fox across the street or upstairs at the speak easy before the show.

Come on guys..

Saw Bret Michaels tonight - second time I visited the Arcada. He was outstanding - great energy, fun and put on an entertaining show. Been at the Arcada twice now - the venue is a blast - great environment and ambiance for music. That said, both times I was there the bands experienced sound/technical issues (monitors/mics going out, etc). Bret was a consummate professional in the way he handled it. You would think that the folks at the Arcada who bill themselves as a music venue would do all possible to get the sound right..it's not that difficult. C'mon folks, get it right.

I love Arcada! The music is fantastic and the owner is always there asking questions like who would you like to see here at Arcada. He talks to everyone. Arcada is in the middle of this beautiful little town with great places to eat. I really love it! To the owner of Arcada, thank you so much for having Neil Morse and his bands at your venue.

Gino Vannelli Concert
Nov 2019
This was my first visit to this theatre for a music concert. The performance was excellent. There was ample nearby free parking and the seating within the theatre was comfortable. During introductions before the concert began it was mentioned that the theatre's ownership has upcoming planned significant renovations, which will enlarge amenities, such as the capacity of restrooms, and update the heating and cooling systems. The acoustics were very good during the concert. The sound balance was very good between vocals and the musical instruments.

With more bathrooms this would be 5 stars
Oct 2019 • Friends
It’s a common complaint I know but felt like need to keep acknowledging it.
Great intimate setting and we’ve seen amazing artists here. Lines to the bathrooms and even to the bars make it a rough get. When we see an artist coming to Arvada we want to see, we then check their schedule to see where else they’ll be appearing in the area, even if it’s 2-3 months later—we’ll book there.
Love what the Arvada has done for entertainment here in St Charles. We still attend semi regularly and will continue. Needs to be more customer friendly from a comfort stance.
Thanks for the great entertainment over the the years!
