Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Very nice venue for a concert. We had great seats, 4th row center and the sound and sight were great. The concert was a lot of fun, very up beat. Easy to get to the center via the trolley, just a few blocks away.

The Schnitz is a great venue for classical concerts by the Oregon Symphony throughout the year. If there is a piano on the stage for a soloist and you are on the main floor, you want seats to the left of center.

Beautiful building, got a wonderful snack next door before we went in. Decent bathroom with enough seating to run through the line quickly. Sound quality at the event made it easy to hear this wonderful 84year old all the way up in the mezzanine. Tasty drinks available before the even, and we were allowed to bring them to our seats with lids. Plenty of attendants to direct ticket holders.

This is a cozy place when watching a concert or show...Parking is kind of tough downtown so you may ride the MAX(Metropolitan Area Express) or the bus when attending a concert/show here...Or else, go early so you can relax and not to be stressed out driving around...Downtown Portland is beautiful anyway so walking to this place is a joy...

A group of friends attended the "Chorus Line" musical on October 28, 2012 at the Schnitzer. The total lack of seating legroom detracted from our enjoyment of the musical. Seating is so jammed together we could barely move our legs to maintain circulation. Only the shortest of people or children could be comfortable in these seats. Acoustics were fine, the hall is attractive however the lack of seating legroom ruined our experience. Do yourself a favor, avoid events held at the Schnitzer.
