Goodbye Recher. You were so cheesy and wonderful. I will miss you and your bad taste in local high school and college cover bands. Mr. Greenjeans wont have anywhere to play now.

Thankfully the Recher is no more. It was a gross place. I heard they had a time when it was the place to be. That time is gone and time to move on to something better.

The Recher used to be a fun place with local bands, good crowds, and decent drinks. Then they had a problem (Not their fault from what I read) that involved police and arrests in the street outside The Recher. It's a shame, we need more places where local bands can get their start

According to the latest news around Towson, the Recher Theatre will no longer be a local band venue and is being closed. It is being combined with The Rec Room next door into one large coctail lounge. A new name for the combined operation has not yet been released that I know of.

This is not a bad venue. I've attended many concerts here, some very good names in music. However, the demographic is shifting, as the concerts get crappier and they are really starting to try for the college bar scene from Towson kids. Perhaps a good financial choice, but not a good aesthetic decision. Still good for local concerts. Have seen... More

Used to be a cinema when I was a kid! For a small hall, they bring some great entertainers, and it's away from the city, actually a fun suburban area. Sells wine and beer. Standing only is the set up, which can be tedious by night's end, but the crowd gets really fired up. Can check your coats for a... More

Its just not that great! A small space, extremely unfriendly security guards, sketchy part of town, sketchy people in general, filthy bathrooms, confusing layout.... ick.

Went there to see a local band. The cover price was cheap. It had alot of charecter. The staff was friendly & the drinks were reasonable. What more could you want. Next time i would go earlier to check out the shops & restraunts that are within walking distance.

The Recher appears to be a vintage movie theater that's been modified into a concert venue, as has happened all over the country. That's a good thing. They get some very popular acts, which is another good thing, but the theater itself is nasty. There is no place to sit inside, and the dirty, tattered carpeting looks like you should... More
