Kind of an older dumpy venue, but the drink prices aren't crazy.

Not the best show I've been to. I used to love congress. Now you constantly have bouncers and security pushing through the crowd looking for people smoking. Trading one nuisance for absorbed. The $2 gratuity fee on credit purchases at the concession is ridiculous as I was tipping already before I noticed. Pouring draft beer does not warrant $2 tip. I think I was more irritated that the cashier didn't say anything. Next time I go I'm bringing cash, and not tipping at all.

From Our Editors

With its gargantuan ballroom space, the Congress Theater is just as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the ears. The former movie palace, which boasts a curved upper deck lined with red-velvet seats, beckons concertgoers to its lushly vintage confines for country-music shows, bluegrass festivals, and electronic-music performances. Regardless of the act, audience members revel beneath an ornately decorated domed ceiling that's perfect for jetpack escapes when the dance floor gets too crowded. The theater also is branching out into its surrounding neighborhood by filling attached storefronts with restaurants, small grocers, and other community partners.
