I took my family to see the Bee Gees Gold tribune band in August 2017, and we all have a great time.
The cave is located in the middle of Big Bear Village. There are plenty of bars and restaurant all around the venue.
The cave has chair seating on two levels, and VIP seating on the left and right side of the stage for extra money. I also saw some tables and chairs near the sound booth that were reserved, so I'm assuming they are also extra money. I felt all of the seating offered a great view of the stage and the performance, unless the person in front of you decided to stand up and watch, there you are going to have a great view of someone's butt! There is also a dance pit in the front next to the stage.
We felt the ticket price of $25 was very reasonable. My young children who we are trying to convert to disco fans, were free! I found out the Cave used to be a giant movie theater, they have done a great job of turning in into a music venue.
Double check the starting time. I was told the band would start at 6:30PM, and to be there by 5:30 for the best seats (Only the VIP seats are reserved, everything else is first come, first serve). We got there at 5:30 to find out that the doors open at 6:30, that the opening band started around 6:30, and the Bee Gees Gold started around 7:30 or 8pm. I thought I would be rocking out to Staying Alive at 6:30, so you may want to double check the actual starting time.
All of the staff were professional and nice. They have lots of security. When you enter they will screen you for weapons and outside liquor.
The Cave has two bars. The drinks are typical music venue prices, cocktails were $9-15 depending on the quality of the liquor. The drinks were good. One of the bars served light food; nachos, popcorn, etc.
The Cave does get loud. We sat in the middle and didn't think the music was overly loud.
The bathrooms were clean.
This is my second time seeing a show at the Cave, and I had a great time at both shows.
I would recommend the cave to my family and friends.
