    Excellent venue. Feels intimate but is pretty large. Nice sound system. Craft beer selections are amazing, and they have servers who'll come to you!

    It’s clean, crowd control is smooth, and a good selection of beer. Shows run smoothly, amazing tech crew. Parking sucks: $15-$20 to park in the lot or drive around forever looking for street parking.

    Eric André, MØ, The Neighborhood, The 1975... all of these sound familiar? Of course they do! Come catch some awesome headliners, and enjoy the space and intimate atmosphere.

    Still wish it was the spaghetti factory, but double bars and seating on the risers in back if you get there in time. Definitely stop at one of the new breweries that dot the neighborhood

    The best small venue in Philadelphia hands-down. Two bars to serve you during and after a show. Any spot is good for watching live.

    Sometimes they open the top for seats. It usually doesn't get crowded right away and there's a bar up there too wth waitresses coming around to bring you drinks.

    Built in the early 1900’s as a luggage terminal under the same name, today’s Union Transfer is one of the best spots in the city to catch a concert.

    remember the second door takes you to the front of the stage. But this is a sweet venue many places are great for seeing the band you love.

    Superb venue with great staff and reasonable drink prices as well. Not to mention the exception sound quality! One of my favorites venues.

    Like this venue as there was a place to sit in the balcony. I can't stand for long periods of time so if you are like me, sit in the balcony if you need to.

    If you're there for a seated venue, not a rock concert. Bring a warm jacket. They keep the place at a cool 55 degrees for all the hot air and men in the place. I saw loads of women freezing like me

    I saw Mutemath here which was one of the best shows I've seen at one of the best venues.

    The indie-rock concert venue serves as a happy medium between smaller rooms like Johnny Brenda’s and Kung Fu Necktie and larger joints like the Electric Factory and the Tower Theater.

    The best venue in Philly. Great selection of beer (they've got cider for those with gluten allergy).

    Great new venue. Buy the parking pass when you get tickets - it costs more the night of the show and is much cheaper than the city lots in the area.

    No seats for concerts, so be prepared to stand. Good location though with $15 parking behind the venue (limited spots however.) Lots of parking available on the nearby streets.

    I had a lot of fun, though the show I saw was geared more towards kids. Standing room only, so my legs were killing me.

    nice venue, although the stage lighting needs a little improvement. i could barely see the faces of the performers.

    Holly Williams was great, and the drunk frat boy starting a fight and getting kicked out was cool too.

    Don't go to the pregnant bartender. You probably won't make that mistake though, because she will be doing the best impression of somebody NOT working you've ever seen.
