  • The building is well designed for events. Interesting architecture with appropriate historical context and contemporary design influences. The catering for event I attended was quite good. High quality food, interesting creations, broad range of choice. Not outstanding food, but certainly good. This is not the best venue for acoustics for a music event Kama especially a loud Electric rock kind of music event. Acoustic shows are okay.
  • SteelStacks is one of the coolest places I know of. It is historically rich in so many ways. On these grounds they built the steel for the Golden Gate Bridge, the beams for many of the great sky scrapers, and so many other things went down here that shaped our country and business and engineering practices. But today, this is a place for music and art, and sometimes marshmallows shaped like ducks or bunnies. Such a great venue. Often 5 concerts going on at once.
  • Attend many events here from concerts to the Oktoberfest weekend. Plenty of parking plus it's a visually interesting venue with the old Bethlehem Steel blast furnaces as a backdrop. Highly recommend walking the catwalk along the furnaces for an in depth look. Summer concerts outside is a big plus!
  • Fantastic food and service! With reasonable prices. It is also necessary to mention the seating scheme that is just amazing no matter what area you choose
  • Went to the event "Chriskindlmarkt" and had a great time. Very little was outside, most was inside in the heated tents. That's a good thing because it was snowing the whole time. There is a lot to see and plenty of food and drink. The vendors are great, very informative about their products, friendly and offering samples, and not expensive. They take cards as well as cash. Bathrooms are out of the way but again, indoors near the gift shop. Parking was free near the event if you can find a spot. Would definitely recommend this event if you're looking for a unique gift, or just something fun to do. Cost was $9 per person to get in, little less for kids.
