Foursquare Tips

  • This place is rockin'
  • The 1st concert hall in the country that catered exclusively to Black artists & audiences. See great examples of African-Americans' contributions to us all:
  • If you're going to the first show, get there when the doors open and be prepared to wait a while. While you wait, order dinner and a cocktail and relax a bit.
  • Eat before you go. Service is stupid dumb slow.
  • Great venue for music, not for food. Save your money and stick with drinks and appetizers. Entrees are overpriced and not worth the hype that the website portrays.
  • Get there early or u will be standing ...
  • D.C.s historic music hall on Black Broadway has reopened as a super-club, booking major R&B, jazz, and pop acts. Bonus: chef Marcus Samuelsson oversees the restaurant.
  • Chipotle salmon is the best!!!
  • Please get to the theater 3.5 hours before show - seating policy is a hot mess. You can't be seated until entire party is present.
  • Save a few dollars by visiting the theater box office if you can. Ticketmaster's extra fees add up.
  • Really nice venue. Food is pricy and plates are small. Coming early gets you a good seat toward the front but the seats are uncomfortable after time. Tables seat 8 but should be for 6.
  • Front door is off can see straight through to an amazing column. More to come
  • First Drag Show since the 1960's is Now at The Howard Theatre "A Drag Salute To The Divas" next Show October 10, 2012
  • 11/4: interior completely gutted except for a few interior posts; flooring now dirt with a few rats romping through the interior last night.
  • Check out this sped up Howard Theater renovation video from last year; too bad the restoration work didn't keep going:
  • Get their artichoke and crab dip. Don't expect fast service. It took 30 minutes for drinks to arrive. Their large bites are huge, good for 2
  • Not the Service. . . And not the drinks... just the artists. Otherwise it's and over hyped venue that underwhelm you
  • PJ Morton was awesome!
  • The Gospel Brunch was wonderful!!! The food was very tasty, especially the catfish fingers and apple cobbler. The singing by Harlem Gospel Choir was amazing!!!!! I will def be back.
