You could go see a show someplace in downtown, pay for parking, walk through tight security, buy a watered down, overpriced drink and pay $10 more than you would at the Beachland for the same performer, FREE parking, well-made drinks and friendly service from the door to the bartenders! The Beachland is located in an up-and-coming artsy neighborhood and although it seems to have a shady reputation lasting from years ago I hit up this venue at least twice a month and have NEVER felt unsafe walking back to my car whether I parked in one of the lots near the venue or on the street even when I am out solo.
The building is split between the smaller Tavern and the large Ballroom, and frequently have different acts playing on both stages. Both stages are very accessible to the audience and several times I've been able to chat with my favorite performers as they were chilling at the bar after their set or taking in the next performer on the lineup. It's almost like seeing your favorite act perform in your high school gym. There's just a friendly vibe in this place that promotes a real LOVE of music, the artists/performers that make it and the fans that support it!
