“Fun place to hear live music!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

The Kessler is nice and cozy with great seating and wonderful acoustics. It's small and general admission, so you have to arrive early to pick out your seat. There is also a nice lounge upstairs with window to see the band. They have a bar with seating downstairs as well. It's fun and a little bit like going back in time.

“Phenomenal Acoustics”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

I ventured to this venue last night for the first time. The opening act, Jason Elmore and Hoodoo Witch were out of this worle. Then came Carolyn Wonderland. WOW is nothing compared to her talents. This venue is perfect for live music. The decor is outstanding. The bar provides quick service. Everything is clean, the restrooms are exceptionally clean. It'd be extra nice if they provided wait or waitress service. I highly recommend a visit to this venue.

“Great night at the Kessler with Glen Phillips”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

Had never seen a show at the Kessler until one of our favorites, Glen Phillips came to town. What a great venue. Fantastic deco exterior and lobby. Great bar. The room itself was set up perfectly. Wonderful acoustics. Try to get a VIP table near the stage. A very intimate feel. The only thing it was missing was waiter/waitress service in the concert hall. I think could be added easily and wouldn't disrupt the vibe if handled well. I would've loved an extra beer or two without having to get up.

“Great little place to see a concert”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

We saw Asleep at the Wheel here last week. Great little venue. None of the seats are that far from the stage. The bar food is light and tasty. But don't expect to get a full meal there. Nice beer selection. Friendly place, we will deinitely be going back. If you want a small intimate place to see a concert this is the place.
