The bar in the back of the main floor is not exactly one you pine to go to when you're not attending a show. But of course the bar is not the main consideration here, and it's great to see this historic place maintained, and with a pretty attractive set of performances (we've seen Tim Minchin, Concrete Blonde, Norm MacDonald, and Demetri Martin there, among others). It also happily inherits the features of an old movie theater that most live venues lack -- a sloping floor, and ample seating. They occasionally have issues with heat, but it's one of the better places in the city to see a show.
