This is a great place to hear music. Not a bad seat in the house, and the sound is perfect. I've been following changes to the lineup and noticing a lot more diversity in their programming - in the last year I've seen Cuban, Americana,...More

This is a wonderful and spacious venue for musical performances. Food/drinks options are a little limited. Parking is always tricky in Downtown Berkeley. But music is always good here.

The Freight is an intimate, 400 seat, acoustically perfect place to hear music. While its roots are in traditional and folk music, they have been bringing in more diverse programming over the past several years. Check out the online schedule, pick a show and GO.

They serve beer and the venue host offered a free drink ticket to the first person who got up to dance. There's isn't a dance floor or pit, so you kinda have to dance in a small area upfront between the aisles.
