Named after its former life as a 1920s era warehouse, Warehouse Live has traded the steady hum of industrial machines for the solid roar of music-crazy crowds. Before even setting foot within, guests can get an idea of the venue’s energy by noting the 20-foot marquee towering above the street at the entrance, flashing its vintage neon welcoming. The venue’s two spaces cater to groups of all sizes, from 1,500-person concerts to 50-person parties and very awkward, very expensive first dates. Full bars throughout pour a menu of cocktails and beer to keep limbs limber for dancing.
