Extremely well laid out, about the best place I’ve experienced for live entertainment. Great staff, great bar, nice restrooms, courteous staff. My first choice of venue in Greensboro.

First visit to this venue. Older theater that has been converted for live entertainment. Smaller, but they seem make it work. All staff were very nice and helpful. $9 beer makes for fewer trips to the bar for me. Would be nice if the place...More

Overall, a decent experience. The theater is very narrow and deep, so view from the upper level is not great. Biggest complaint though was the bar service. The downstairs bars had NO wine and the bartender told us that she didn't think any was sold...More

Th is wa our first visit to the center. We had center balcony seats and had a good view of the stage. There are bars located at the back on both sides and wait staff throughout.

Nice small venue for up close experience . Fold up padded chairs to sit in. Drinks are expensive. $9 beer and $4 sodas. Need more bathrooms for the ladies.

This is our second time visiting this venue, and both times, we have enjoyed the pew seats. For us, it's the only way to go. There seemed to be a lot of pushing and shoving in the middle standing section. Had great service there too.

Saw Breaking Benjamin 01/13/2017. We had balcony seats. Great vantage point from there. Nice to have bathrooms and a bar area on that level. The staff was super friendly and we would definitely go back.

This was my first time at CDEC. I did not realize that General Admission was ALL STANDING. Of course you could rent a small table for $20. Seemed like a safety concern for all standing. You could upgrade to balcony seating up top. The whole...More

We went to a great concert. The staff was nice and very helpful. Nice place to go and listen to music. Makes you feel like they right in your house, playing just for you. Loved it. Thanks for a great time.

Small venue in a small town. I traveled short of two hours to attend a charity concert put on by a local country music station. Seemed like a really nice complex for music. All I encountered was a single stall bathroom, which can be frustrating...More
