Not a bad seat in the house. Friendly staff. Love that they have several full bars. You can bring your drink to your seat.

Went to see Billy Elliot. Easy to get in, easy to find seats and lines for concession were not to long. Strongly recommend if available to get seats on the side second level. It really provided a great experience!

We've been to the mainstage and other stages here and really enjoyed the venue. Parking is never wonderful in downtown Walnut Creek, but some new garages have made it easier. Definitely recommend this performing venue.
