“With the band(s) !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

Small venue but this will allow the performance to be so different from what you are used to. It can be crowded and the layout is not the best. The sound system is great.Get caught smoking tobacco and you'll be thrown out!

“Wouldn't Return”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Staff is mean and pushy - throwing people out left and right for "getting too into the music" or "being too drunk" when they were perfectly fine. Theater is hot, stuffy, and run-down. Probably wouldn't go back here unless the band wasn't playing anywhere else in a 50 mile radius (which rarely happens).

“Always oversold and terrible layout - But good sound”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

The sound here is great and if the show is not sod out is a great venue. Whenever bigger crowds converge the terrible layout is really exposed. On the sides everyone is standing sideways and the flow up and down stairs and aisles becomes treacherous especially when returning with a drink. The sound is the one redeeming quality to the venue.

“The best sound system anywhere around!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

I don't think the owners have updated a thing here in 20 years, but the sound is well worth it! Any artist should love to play here as well, any patron will get a great show- up close and personal.

“Nice Venue!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

I have seen so many great shows here. Great small venue to see a band! The staff are generally cool, and being across the street from the University means there is always a young, energetic crowd. If you are traveling through Boulder, make sure to check out the shows here, and at the Boulder theater. Both are great...
