I have been going to the Masquerade since the '90's and love it. Seen some great bands and had some wonderful times. Went back to visit as we heard it would be shutting down. Very sad to see this landmark go.

The Masquerade is a great venue for smaller concerts/events. The event I attended was in Hell (there are three performance areas: Heaven, Purgatory and Hell). I had to walk to Hell from what seemed like a mile or more along a road that isn't as wide as I've been told but certainly as full of people (parking is brutal). It's... More

I love this little venue. it is historic and famous for local, underground and even national acts. I have been here at least 4 times, the last of which was 5/16. This concert was in their "heaven" level and it appeared that "hell" and "purgatory" were closed that night. I heard some distressing news that it was scheduled to be... More

The Masquerade is a pretty unique place. Beginning with that there are different rooms: heaven, hell and purgatory. The concert we went to was in purgatory. It was a descent sized room for a small concert and looked quite old. The power actually went completely out halfway through the show, but was fixed right away which was good! It was... More

I went to see Blind Guardian this last weekend and the place left a good impression. My first concern was about parking, but there was a huge lot with plenty of space on the back of the house for 5 bucks. Sound was good and because it is a small place, you are always close to the stage. Overall concert... More

This review is for the Moms and Dads. Took my teen daughter to see her favorite band on a Wednesday night. It was actually 5 bands and it lasted about 5.5 hours. They had removed all of the chairs based on the size of the crowd they were expecting. Could have used a place to sit but understandably the fans... More

The inside of this place looks like a decrepit mansion. At a show I felt as if the floors were going to cave in. The show I went to in the back was pretty fun and we had a great time. Fun place with a lot of character but on the whole not the best venue in Atlanta

This isn't your typical concert venue - the place is falling apart, people are tightly packed together, and there's no convenient way to get to it. That being said, this place definitely appeals to the punk spirit and is intimate in a somewhat disorganized sense. Bands known for spirited performances shine here, as the venue simply highlights their energy. Definitely... More
