Houston, TX 77036
Houston Press' Description
With a capacity of about 2,750, Sharpstown's Arena Theatre is the redheaded stepchild of Houston music venues. Even with all the competition it has these days, the Arena manages to keep the lights on most nights out of the month. Its calendar is constantly crowded with music across a wide variety of styles, including R&B, blues, country, rap, Latin and rock, plus comedy, boxing and MMA fighting. The seats are comfortable, the concessions are reasonable (even the cocktails), the sound is clean, the rotating stage never ceases to be a novelty and the gallery of posters for past shows in the walkway leading from the parking garage is second to none.
The Arena Theatre is not only one of Houston's oldest concert venues, it is one of Texas’ most historic.
When you come to the Arena Theatre, you don’t come to see a show, you come to experience it. Because of its unique design, this theatre in the round provides guests with an intimate evening with their favorite entertainer. Arena Theatre has proudly presented many legendary artists such as Willie Nelson, BB King, Tom Jones, Aretha Franklin and Smokey Robinson.
With no seat more than sixty feet from the stage you feel like you are part of the show, not just part of the audience. This intimate setting, unique to the Arena Theatre, lets you feel like you get to know your favorite star a little better.
Tips from foursquare
Any seat is good. Drinks are super expensive. Not a good beer selection at all. $10 parking.
Didn't realize ALL the seats give you a great view! Will be back!
Houston's most intimate seating venue is a theatre in the round. Every seat is great and the VIP package is a luxe upgrade...now that's a Crate idea!
Every seat is a good seat.
Nice theater with a stage that circles around. The drinks are really expensive (7.50-8.50).
