“Enjoyable Experience”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

The remodeled venue has more comfortable seats and better acoustics. We saw Sir James Galway in a great performance. The Center offers a wide variety of programs including dance, music of many genres, comedy, theater and concerts. The lobby bar offers light refreshments and a place to mingle.

“Great venue”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Recently attended a concert at Scottsdale Center for the arts. Great venue. They offer cocktails and soda in the lobby with a nice area to mingle. The location is perfect in Scottsdale, near old town. Great restaurants and bars nearby within walking distance. Lots of touristy shops nearby. Venue has great acoustics and is quite intimate. An absolute gem.

“All good seats nice venue”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

Saw a concert there, Steve Earle. Not sure whether it was the sound man or the venue, but the acoustics made it hard to hear the vocals. Not a bad seat in the house. Beautiful theater friendly personnel, and tickets all went smooth. Looks like they have a good season coming up. Wish we could go back and see something else.
