Outdoor venue for shows. Gets pretty good national touring acts. It's in the Seaport, so you can easily check out the nearby restaurants and bars before or after a show.

Grown men with no manners arrived late and filled the row of seats behind us- must have been a corporate row- and talked loudly throughout the entire concert. Don't waste money getting good seats unless you want to pay for the company of loud drunks.

I went to see a concert on 8/13/18 at this location. I was very disappointed to find out about the 11:00 PM curfew. Cake only played for a little over an hour from 9:45 - 11:00 sharp because of the curfew. I drove almost 2...More

This area has been expanding and becoming more and
