Marathon Music Works was originally built in the 1900s and is known for its industrial feel and warehouse-style.
Marathon Music Works tends to bring in bigger acts than your smaller, more intimate venues. Shows are general admission and standing room only, except for a few high top tables and chairs in the back. There is a luxury option for patrons who are 21+ at the Lux Loft, a separated, side-stage area with a private restroom, tables, and chairs.
If you show up one hour before door time, you can partake of the venue’s lounge with cocktails, espresso, and snacks, but you’ll need to show your concert tickets to enter. The time listed on your ticket is door time, so you can arrive up to an hour before that. If you don’t have tickets and just want to hang out at the venue, you can also check out William Collier’s, an additional bar and patio on the premises where tickets are not required.
Many (but not all) shows are all ages, providing an indoor venue for patrons under 18 to experience live music, but you’ll want to check the website for each concert to make sure. The venue also has food, with the Hurry Back taco cart located in the rear of the room, as well as two bars at opposite ends of the room for sodas and alcohol purchases (depending on your age of course). You can purchase tickets online, or at their box office Fridays 10am-4pm and one hour before door times on show days. There is a coat check on site.
