“Amy McDonald Concert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Great venue and the beer is not too expensive either .... Great sound and very nice staff.
Right in the heart of Broad Street and great to walk out after the show and go and have some food or have a drink in one of the many bars etc

“I Wish More Concerts Were At The Symphony Hall !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I am not a great follower of classical music & I realise that this venue has been designed acoustically for classical music to sound great however i have seen a lot of pop performances here & it still works it is great the venue clean & comfortable with a nice bar also it is right in the middle of all the action so you can get a meal & a drink before & after the gig with lots of top restauarants & bars within walking distance ! It is always a bonus if an act is playing here & just wish more pop/rock bands would play at the venue !
