I love this venue because it's not to big, the crowd is usually easy going, the vibe is relaxed, the shows are fun! There are plenty of places to eat & drink before and after.

The Greek Theater is exactly what it sounds like. I was here to see the Yo Yo Ma, Edgar Meyers and Chris Thile trio performing Bach arrangements. It rocked. The performers that they have here can't get better and UC Berkeley is a beautiful place....More

Even with rain this was an amazing place to see Radiohead. Bring a pillow to sit on. Even with long lines to enter we still got an excellent seat. Can't wait to come back!

A Berkeley gem. I love that it's outdoors, too. There's nothing like a great show on a beautiful evening at the Greek. And Cheapskate Hill is awesome for viewing and listening to shows that you can't get into for whatever reasons. An excellent mix of...More
