Very cool room for a show. Had reserved seats but was very crowded and couldn't move when the room filled up. Only complaint bathrooms were behind stage and people were rude the entire show and walking back and forth. Not a good setup.

Went here for a concert - loved the small venue feel - no matter where you were you had good sound and a good view of the stage.

Like to come here for the live performances. Food is good, but service is lagging. They really need to read a book about how to offer better service to paying customers.

We visited the Serrano prior to a show at the Arden. They have a nice selection of beers, and the service was very good. We ordered two appetizers, which were decent, but spending $14 for two and a half scallops and three sprigs of raw...More

Tin Angel is a great place to see a show. It is an intimate venue where the performers are right there and interaction with the audience is comfortable and unforced. My wife and I saw David Ryan Harris there last night and, as always, he...More

Great atmosphere, small yet cozy. Don puts on a great interactive show, great music, the whole place joined in singing and had a fun time. I highly reccomend!
