Really great place to see a comedian or musician. Really intimate and closer setting compared to most of the other places I have seen comedy shows or musicians. Actually see things you might not get to see elsewhere do its smaller venue. Think Nirvana unplugged with some of the musicians and in your living room with your comedian friend. There are lots of good restaurants/bars nearby. This is one of the few streets that make you glad you are in Wilmington.

Great concert doing Prince songs Saturday night. Classic Albums Live was the band that did the concert.

The Grand is the elder statesman of the entertainment scene in Wilmington. Great place to catch the opera, symphony or any number of live acts!

Beautiful old opera house in downtown Wilmington. Love seeing artists here. Not a bad seat in the house.
