  • Excellent venue! Sold out show. The balcony is awesome, could see the whole stage. Sound was great. Entrance was quick for having so many people in line!! Fast service at the bar. No lines for bathrooms. Staff was cleaning the whole time. Really nice evening!! Well done everyone!!
  • Saw Death Cab here. The venue is pretty nice. Pretty well laid out. The parking situation is pretty terrible but manageable. Sound quality at the start of the show has some issues, but I’m not sure if that was a venue issue or not. The balcony is nice and for the show I went to had seating which was enjoyable. Definitely one of the best smaller venues in OKC. I’d go back to see another show.
