Hi Donna, thanks for your feedback! The majority of our shows do offer Fast Lane as a ticket add-on when purchasing online in advance as well as on the day of the show. I'm sorry our box office staff didn't clearly communicate the Fast Lane...More

The Pretenders rocked the house. This venue is well designed, plenty of bathroom and beverage options. Special thanks to Mariah who assisted us with kindness and empathy.

Liked the venue for the comedy show. The seating on the floor wasn't very comfortable, The seating on the upper level is more comfortable. The restrooms are on the second level.

My wife and I saw Lord Huron on Friday 4/20 and it was an incredible experience. The chairs are comfortable in the Mezzanine, so if you like the stadium seating experience, I can highly recommend them. Seats are a bit more expensive than general admission...More

Unfortunately 20 Monroe Live doesn't have any dedicated parking. But if you go to the FAQ page on their website there is good info on parking in the area. Like valet + lots of parking garages, lots & meters :)
