A nice historic Charlotte venue in an older part of town. Not a great selection of hotel options close by. Refreshment options not extensive but the venue is perfect for intimate shows - seating is roughly 2,400.

Thanks for coming to the show. We appreciate your feedback! The next time you come, we suggest checking out the great hotels in Uptown (just a few exits away from our venue) for your next stay. - The Bojangles' Coliseum Team

Great show, the venue really small, not enough ladies rooms for 2000 women! Long lines to get a drink or a pee!

Ovens is one of the larger (largest?) show venues in Charlotte, seating about 2000+, but it doesn't feel that way. Great intimate feel, wonderful acoustics, staging options that are simply amazing. Plenty of refreshment and bar stations pre-show and intermission. About the only issue would...More

Wow what a great venue. There are no bad seats here. It’s a very intimate place to watch a concert. The sound was great, the lighting was great. Security was easy.
