I'm surprised this place isn't...

I'm surprised this place isn't condemned! What a POS! Overpriced drinks, overpriced tickets (they double the prices on a lot of shows), and crappy acoustics! Not to mention it's in the ghetto of Milwaukee. Even on a regular non-show day you still have to watch your back for fear of getting shot or being mugged. And what kind of pace doesn't shovel their sidewalks? I'm pretty sure that's an ordinance violation. Overal... view more

No security cameras to help me...

No security cameras to help me on my case when I was assaulted by a huge guy twice my size as he purposely elbowed me in my temple multiple times knocking me out cold to the floor. I did nothing to provoke this as the crowd was pushing and I said "sorry" when I was pushed into him. As my fiancee picked me up to hand me to the security guard they hit him and pushed him away not letting him explain or point o... view more

I have been to the Rave/Eagles...

I have been to the Rave/Eagles Club too many times to count. The last show I attended was a sold out Mac Miller show in the Eagles Ballroom. Mac himself put on a hell of a show, and I had a great time myself. I was up in the balcony, which allowed me a great view of the stage, however, pretty much wherever you stand in the ballroom you can see the stage. It was in late May, so the room became very hot and humid. Alth... view more

I have been attending concerts...

I have been attending concerts at The Rave for years now, and none have failed to impress me. The Rave consistently and continuously books great acts, from metal bands to hip-hop artists. The sound is always on point; there has yet to be a show that I've witnessed a malfunction of any kind. Ticket prices are never too high. The VIP Balconies, which are not unreasonably priced, offer a great view of the show without h... view more

Great place to see a concert!

The Rave/Eagles Club is a great place for anyone to go see a concert. This venue offers every imaginablbe music genre you could want. With a number of different rooms, the venue is HUGE is size. It is spacious and has a beautiful architechtual structure. Basically you can see the stage from anywhere in the room, especially the ballroom. It is very easy to find the venue and VERY easy to find the room which the band y... view more

Not bad at all

My first time there was last night...and this is how it went. Location: Okay, I heard the area is ghetto, but it wasn’t actually that bad. I mean, it’s kind of inner-city, so it’s not exactly nice, but unless you’re a moron and wander off down side streets and into sketchy alleys, you’ll be fine. Just make sure someone’s walking with you. But that’s something you do in every city. How to get in: There’s a big f... view more

not what i thought

been there for many many concerts they take advantage that they have a monopoly for one of the only venues for concerts in the city of milwaukee some shows are way to expensive and there is this odd fealing you cant trust security to help you out with anything when your there.

Been going there since '97

I've been at the Rave/Eagles Club multiple times, and this is how I feel about this club overall: THE GOOD: *Easy to get to--only a mile from the Expressway exit ramp and is a great alternative to going to Chicago. *Internet contest has a great chance to win shows for free. *Numerous great acts have played here. THE BAD: *The sound, especially up on the V.I.P. balcony. There are no extra speakers placed awa... view more

Decent venue that draws great live music

I have attended several shows here and have always appreciated the line-ups that the venue coordinates, but find the venue a bit lacking. The sound is poor no matter where you stand and the neighborhood is a bit sketchy. That being said, I would still see a great act here.
