    I want to love this place because it's part of my neighborhood, but I keep having bad experiences here. Tickets are fairly pricey (especially compared to 9:30 Club right across the street), and drinks are the most expensive I've ever seen in the city outside a fancy cocktail bar -- $12 for an 8oz cup of any mixed drink (rail liquor). Also, to access the only bathrooms in the venue, you have to walk out into the lobby, then down a staircase to the basement, which takes a while and is a bit confusing if you're new to the venue. I think the venue is set up to be a more formal space, like a classic seated music hall with intermission expected, but this set up doesn't work well for a dance hall / modern concert venue. Last, I enjoyed the recent show I went to, but the air conditioning wasn't working -- it was at least 85 degrees in the venue. Everyone was sweating through their clothes by the end of the show. That said, I've been to the Theater when climate control is working, so this likely isn't a standard problem.

    Besides a great tradition in black entertainment history, a great venue to see acts of all generes. I particularly like reggae acts, and a pretty good stream flows through there. Big ups!

    First time being at Howard Theatre and we had a blast. I cant wait till we go back for another venue. We'll bring some of our friends so they can have a great time as well. I mean the music was nice, dj was killing it, the drinks were delicious and last but not least the servers were on point. We'll be back. Thanks

    I come here every Sunday for Passion City Church and the venue is amazing!! It's incredible that we can have a church service in such a nice theatre and got a sizeable amount of people. The booths on the upper level are super comfortable with nice tables. The stage is great with a big main screen and to big screens on the sides. The worship music in here sounds so awesome which is probably mainly due to the great band and musicians but the theater does surely help with the great sound. For those wanting to check it out, go to a Passion City service and you'll find yourself coming every week

    Being the PROUD Washingtonian that I am and fellow Howard University Alumni. This was my first time ever visiting the Iconic Howard Theatre. Oh and with full disclosure I grew up just a few blocks away. I am so thankful that during Washington’s gentrification they decided to keep this legendary landmark. I loved the ambience, spacious and cozy ( 2nd floor is balcony seating for RSVP. The service, the moderately priced menu, and the overall culture. Please if you’re ever visiting the “Nation’s Capital” Washington, D.C. it’s a must see. Just a friendly reminder, even though there’s parking across the street, and valet. I would suggest taking Metro/Rail Green/ Yellow lines exit Shaw/ Howard.
