My husband and I love coming to this venue for the wide variety of music offered, the intimate environment, great downtown location, (and great beer). We were thrilled with Nolatet, a New Orleans quartet that brought fabulous New Orleans funky Jazz to this stage. We especially love the reserve seating in the First 2 rows!

Went to this place for an 8 o'clock show. Show was delayed for an hour and a half! I think this was done purposely so they could sell more alcohol. When they finally opened the doors, someone forgot to keep them unlocked so others could get in. The first act was terrible. Two girls calling themselves Brief Awakening sang pedestrian... More

We went to Deborah Hansen-Conant. The show was fantastic. The theater has open seating for about 90 folks. The bar prices were great. A nice homey place to see a performer.

Unique shows with prominent traveling and local performers. As with many such venues, the volume is to the point of endangering one's hearing.

Now back with shows almost nightly,mother do a great job. Good locals ever an full bar downstairs, general seating for shows, not large, on quiet side street off Patton Ave surrounded by local churches. No food but nice place as are within walking distance, one is the Havana restaurant just 20 steps away.

Happened onto this place on Valentine's Day after seeing posters for a Patsy Cline tribute band (The Sweet Dreamers). It's a top-notch, clean and modern venue. Intimate setting. Nice bar. Great price. The band was excellent!

Saw Deja Vu - a great Crosby Stills & Nash tribute band from Ga at the Altamont Theater. The sound was great, Can't be live music in a small setting.

What a miserable experience staying in the incredibly noisy condos above the Altamont Theatre. We had to listen to an entire concert through the floor and walls - were never alerted upon renting that we were walking into the least peaceful place in Asheville and would have to suffer through an entire concert we didn't want to hear. Street noise,... More

This is an intimate space for music. Good variety of performances. Only wish they would bring in some good women's music. One of the few music venues in town where you can sit.
