Best Concert Venue

The Beachland Ballroom

It's not just the Beachland's ample breathing room and obstruction-free view that make it the best place to see a show; it's also how the place books the nation's top artists in any number of genres. Rock, pop, hip-hop, folk, country, and jazz all get equal play, and all play surprisingly well on the Beachland's big, bare ballroom stage. The accompanying tavern's cozy little corner stage offers intimate experiences with singer-songwriter types. The Beachland is hip, hot, and unpretentious, and it totally rocks.
