The Observatory North Park

Completely revamped and under new ownership, the historic North Park Theatre, now The Observatory North Park, is the perfect spot to spend an unforgettable evening dancing along to your favorite live music acts. Located in the hip North Park community on University Avenue, you can catch anything from top-tier touring acts to fully-catered corporate events (if you're planning big). The theatre can comfortably hold 1,100 in it's newly designed configuration, so buy your tickets early for big acts, since this venue's famous for really filling up when the on-stage talent warrants.

The concert schedule spans all sorts of live acts inspired by musical stylings from all over the world, so the venue is like a passport to every corner of the globe for you sonic sightseers ready for the next big star. Acts like Bad Religion, Local Natives, Tribal Seeds, The Faint, The Hives, Taking Back Sunday and many, many more have graced the stage with their high energy performances.

Because concerts are thirsty work, there's plenty to choose from when you want something to drink. The venue is adjacent to West Coast Tavern, a tavern with popular food, craft beer, and creative handcrafted cocktails. You can get a bite to eat before and after shows until midnight and the bar's last call comes at 2 am. If you're looking for a one-stop spot for an excellent evening of music, food, and drinks, then check out The Observatory North Park.
