We have been to this venue 2 times now and we love it. You can bring in coolers and food. If you don't food is reasonable. No bad seats here and it sounds great

I love Chastain as a concert venue. The rating is based on its accessibility. Parking is an absolute nightmare, especially for the handicapped and once inside, it is challenging. So, how to enjoy. First, parking. Plan to arrive up to 2 hrs early to get handicap parking close to Gate 1. We were an hour early yesterday and....not fortunate. IF... More

Chastain has become a family tradition since the 1970's and remains so to this day. It is a mix of the local gentry and entertainers that understand the dinner/concert concept. If you can swing an Orchestra right or left table the do it..... Always get a prepaid parking pass and you simply bypass any burden schlepping in your med size... More

This amphitheater is right in the middle of a residential neighborhood, so it's not walking distance from any hotel. But it was a short Uber ride from our hotel in Buckhead. It is smaller than I expected and I think that "orchestra" section is a little misleading considering how far our seats were from the stage. BUT there really are... More

Went here with a group of 8 friends to see Googoo Dolls. Everything was perfect. Parking was not an issue (we paid $20 to park in the blue lot), we walked down a set of stairs to the gate, then after having our bags and coolers checked we proceeded to our seats. (It took us less than 10 minutes to... More

Our first experience here exceeded our expectations. I did some research so we were prepared. We had planned to arrive early but it poured so we hunkered down in the hotel . But fortunately the rain slowed down before the concert and the evening was lovely. The particular concert we went to (Boz Scags/Michael McDonakd) allowed food and drink to... More

I paid good hard earned money to see a Classic Rock band this past weekend. Being in my mid 40's, I've attended many concerts. When the opening band started playing, I stood up and applauded. To my dismay, I was the only person standing praising the band. Upon scanning the crowds near me, I was appalled that I was getting... More

Chastain is well know for the ambiance. Most commonly, you are allowed to bring in your own food and drinks. However, some shows are excluded from this option, so always check. Here is what you may want to consider packing: -Stadium seat cushions -Ponchos/rain jacket -Umbrella -Food -Alcohol beverage of choice (glass is permitted) -Forks, napkins, plates, cups, etc. -Candle...

The amphitheater is in the nice neighborhood of Buckhead. Beautiful surroundings. In the middle of the concert, however, it started to rain slightly and people pulled their umbrellas out. The view was obstructed. Also, wish we knew to bring wine and cheese. People brought portable small tables, food, beverages and candles. We will definitely go and see another concert there.... More

We had heard this was a venue with small tables & you could take a picnic, so we were disappointed this wasn't offered for the concert we attended. However, the seats were great, good view of the stage, sound could have been better, but this is an outdoor venue. Was able to park just a few steps from the entrance... More
