I took my husband here for his birthday to watch Ali Wong and we both had an awesome time. The venue was intimate but the perfect size for such an event. We had VIP seats with the best possible view. The ushers were friendly and helpful in helping guests find their seats.

I don't think I was ready for this show but Kerry Ipema definitely was ready for her opening night in Anaheim. Cat A sends me a message last minute to come down to join her as her plus one. Sure, why not. At least traffic was moving for the most part. It wasn't what I expected because this show was really funny. Creative writing with lots of puns. This was like huge cliff notes for all six seasons. If I knew this Kerry, it would be like a friend telling me quickly the entire six seasons in one sitting. Saved me from having to sit through a whole week of reviewing this on DVD. I am just glad she didn't cover the movies after two hours plus intermission.

What a great venue! It's so small and intimate - and only a mile away from where I live. We didn't want to pay $10 for parking, so I had my dad drop us off and we took a $2 bus ride back. We came here to see Courtney Love live, and I was surprised at how small it was. The drinks are a reasonable price AND you can bring it out to the main floor. Sweet! So naturally, we had 3 rounds!

The acoustics were great, even though Courtney's voice was giving out. It was really to get in and out of their and the restrooms were clean. At the end of the night we went into some room behind a curtain to finish our drinks but were kicked out 5 minutes later as it was "closed." Then why the heck were the curtains open?

We finished our drink outside but were rushed to get out of there. I'm dinging them one star for rushing me right after we got a fresh drink. Stop serving booze if you're only giving me 5 minutes to drink it! Needless to say I had to chug the rest of my drink and went off on my very merry way. Had a great experience there and wouldn't hesitate to go there again for another concert.

I went here with my friends to watch a Jesse Cook concert. The venue provides ample parking. The theater is not that big, so the performance felt a bit more intimate. The ushers were very helpful. There's a wet bar outside and a separate bar on the corner.

Despite of living at a walking distance from the City National Grove Of Anaheim, until this year I only have been there once, as opposed as the Anaheim Stadium where I have been several times even though I don't understand baseball...
(but that's a different story)

When somebody invited me to celebrate St. Patricks seeing The Fenians I got excited about it, not only my Irish alter ego Anna O'Reilly but also because of the nearby venue

We got there on time for the show, the people from the box office was quite pleasant.
Tickets in hand, there we were in our merry way to the show
Yes, merry as a leprechaun

Walking in the it was a smoker friendly area, then an important part of any venue: THE BAR! My inner Irish was craving a Guinness but they didn't have it on tap... Oh well... they had other beers including their own label: The Grove =)
Kinda pricey $8 each, but it's kinda standard for venues like this.

The acoustic of this venue is excellent, that's why they have hosted a wide variety of shows: from ThePianoGuys to Mike Tyson.

Going in on the right is the Terra Rosa Room, a VIP room very well decorated to have dinner or simply to chill before or during the show. Love the fabrics used on the room decoration!
and of course the Terra Rosa Room won't be complete without a bar =)

The stage was perfect to host The Fenians, Citizen Joe and Sportive Tricks, sound was phenomenal!

Me, my friends and my inner Irish partied the night away .
Later on we went near the stage to the floor dance.
Pretty cool!
Security and all the venue's staff were helpful and courteous. Well organized, seems like everything flows here.

Recommended to catch a show.
