Accessible Seating Area Details

There is an area of the raised bar area in the back that is cordoned off for wheelchair seating, and they have folding chairs for companions. Since it is raised and the floor of the venue is sloped, the view of the stage is good, even though the raised area is in the back. The seating area is to the left of the soundboard when you enter the venue, and venue staff escorts you there. If there are multiple wheelchairs, you are kind of stacked behind one another.
