    I've been here for 2 concerts and a show. It's small enough to feel intimate with the performers. The acoustics were very good. They serve alcohol. The employees were helpful and kept everyone safe. T...  more »

    Julianne Hough was sizzling and Derek Hough was smokin' hot. Great venue for their dancin', singin' and action packed show from the Roaring 20's to theWell worth the price of admission.  more »

    This is a decent venue for concerts and other private events. Easy access to parking at a reasonable price. Staff if adequately friendly and helpful. Auditorium is outdated but adequate for the cost.

    Fun place to see a show. Maybe starting to show it's age a bit but the seats were comfy even if the temperature was a bit high.

    Very nice auditorium. Seems to be a good view from every seat. Bathrooms are clean. Parking us expensive and a bit far from the venue.

    Shortly before the Steven Martin/Martin Short show, my husband earned some crutches. There was no way he would be able to get to our balcony seats. The staff was great. They gave us some handicapped seating on the first floor, helped with doors and access, and were so very helpful! From the time he limped in to the time we left, the staff was just amazing!! Thank you!

Where to stay in Charlotte

To avoid driving or riding on public buses during your visit to Charlotte, book your room in or near the city center. You can find most of Charlotte's chain hotels in so-called "Uptown," the centrally located business district and hub of tourist action. Hotels near the airport provide good low-rate options for travelers on a limited budget. These spots offer rooms with access to major roads, allowing you to explore the region quickly and easily.
