We attended David Crosby's Skytrails concert here and it was really good. The staff were great and the sound and ambience contributed to an enjoyable evening. Parking was no issue. We would definitely come back.

I have seen multiple concerts here and it’s by far one of my favs. Right in the heart of Little 5 Points.... you DON’T want to miss. All singer songwriters I’ve seen here have been beyond memorable. I cannot wait to see Trevor Hall again

The Playhouse is small. It probably seats not much more than a 1000 people, but that's also the theater's strength. People tend to communicate more with each other and with the people surrounding them. It's like a feeling you have at a wedding. You don't...More

Saw Allman Bros. Tribute band. Great talent and had a great vibe except the sound man was running the sub woofers off the scale loud. Yes I understand how impressive your new sound system is, but you don't have to prove it with every kick...More

I love this venue for concerts.The acoustics/house sound system are good. It is small enough that you don't feel too far away from the action even in the balcony. They have great acts so I recommend checking their calendar periodically. I do live close so...More

Venue staff were GREAT. Security staff- not so much. Horrible parking. Long walk, in the dark, over uneven sidewalk, in the rain... Dingy, dark, seemed grimy but it wasn't. VERY uncomfortable hard folding chairs and tight seating. Front row seating requires high neck tilt. Poor...More
