Jordan Hall has wonderful accoustics and sightlines. However, the seating layout is very odd. Sections can be impossible to access without going through a row of seating first (and disturbing everyone who is seated). Be aware, especially if you are handicapped or don't move too...More

An often overlooked option for both locals and visitors to the city. Check on-line for regular (several times a week) free concerts. Show-cased talent can be faculty members, guest artists, students. This is a concert hall with very good acoustics, intimately sized, a real treat....More

This is a beautiful older concert hall with wonderful acoustics. Being in an older building, it's a bit quirky - some of the seats are hard to get to and require climbing over dozens of people. Also, as in many venues of this type, they...More

The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but
loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this

victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located

For something casual and quick there is a Paneta across the street. For fine dining there are dozens of restaurants near the Prudential Center and Copley Place neighborhood just 15 minute walk from the concert hall.
