Foursquare Tips

  • Go for lunch on Tuesdays & Thursdays for a mindblowing bean and cheese burrito and a beverage for only $5!
  • If you order a drink at the front bar & plan to go in the main room to watch a show, let them know so they put it in a plastic cup instead of a glass--saves you from getting stopped at the door.
  • This a place I could call home. Everyone looks after each other. Crescent is a community which fully describes the future movement of downtown Phoenix.
  • 2012 Best of Phoenix Winner: Best New Music Venue! Expect a "who's who" of indie tastemakers, folk troubadours and art rock icons live over a crystal-clear sound system.
  • Someone wrote a tip that there are only two unisex bathrooms. This is actually false. In the back of the venue, there are two separate men's and women's bathrooms with numerous stalls in each.
  • Make sure you check out both bars before ordering to see what beers are on tap. Each bar often has some different drafts on tap.
  • The most recent addition to the cocktail list is the New Old Fashioned, which is a mix of Jim Beam's Devil's Cut bourbon, simple syrup, and water muddled with strawberries, oranges, bitters, and mint.
  • If you like it hoppy get the O'Dell's IPA
  • The Stella Artois on draft here is delicious, and decently priced. This is one of the only venues where the food is as good as the musical performances! Chips and homemade salsa hit the spot nicely.
  • I love that you can chill in the Lounge and still hear the tunes from the Ballroom pretty pretty well.
  • Don't eat before getting to the venue. Cocina 10 is located at the venue and the burritos and salsa are yum!
  • Crescent has quickly become an iconic staple in the CenPho scene. If you haven't been, treat yo' self
  • A Phoenix gem! Cool, hip restaurant bar in front of a truly amazing and surprisingly sizable music venue. Great bands every night. And oh... really good food.
  • This place has an excellent sound system
  • Tip your bartenders heavy because they are the jam!
  • What an incredible venue for live meusic! Not a bad seat in the room
  • This is the perfect sized venue, plus nachos. Amazing.
  • Tacos. Music. People. Sex.
  • Buy any menu item on Tuesday and get a free ticket to an upcoming show!
  • Check Facebook for specials... Got a mini bean and cheese burrito for $3 at lunch. Yummy! If you can't drink alcohol order a ginger beer and pretend!
