Excellent venue for listening to music. No bad seat in the place. I viewed the show from the balcony and could see everything perfectly. The inside of the building is fully restored and beautiful. Plenty of bathrooms and multiple areas to get refreshments between shows.

Not even all residents of Jacksonville know of this venue. It is a beautifully restored show place of smaller size attracting many fine and exciting shows. These shows include dance, symphonic, theatrical, vocal, comedy from all countries and generations. It harkens back to a time...More

The venue has a lot of character. My wife and I saw Chris Cornell play an amazing set. Sound quality is good. It's a small setting which allows for a more intimate experience. The seats need to be redone and are a little close so...More

Best place in Jacksonville for a concert. It is big enough to bring in good talent and small enough that every seat is a good one. Bar service on each level keep lines to a minimum.

My bride and I have walked from the Omni in the past with no problems. We’re in our 60’s. That’s not saying you couldn’t run into street people.
