Found the staff to be overly blunt no hospitality here. Went to the same concert in Louisville. Much better experience. I am a Cincinnati resident and this makes us look bad.

Classic old theater with terrific acoustics. Great intimate place for concerts -- no obstructions. Served very well for the Symphony while Music Hall was being renovated. Would not hesitate to see any act here.

Saw Dream Theater at The Taft. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Security was great going in, and in allowing for reentering as well. They have a good selection of beverages which are more reasonably priced than at similar venues. Wait staff was exceptional too....More

It's your usual large city historic theater. I'm not ah, a big person by any means but felt crammed in my seat. You might feel a little claustrophobic at a sold out show. Restrooms kinda industrial. Bring cash if you want drinks...a lot of cash.

Hank Williams Jr. played there in '73. He was only one on show. Another show around that time was Tammy Wynette and George Jones together (no air at the time and ridiculously hot:)
