Slowdown is an excellent place for live music. They have a main room for larger events and can also host smaller shows on a smaller stage in the bar area. The venue is intimate and the acoustics are great. We've seen quite a few shows...More

We are so lucky to have the Slowdown in Omaha. Very cool place featuring local bands with a stage, dance floor and plenty of seating around the bar and stage. Low lights, friendly bartenders, great music.

Great place to see concerts. Need to be a little more consistent in price of drinks. Had a $4 difference in price in less than 20 minutes for same exact drink. Overall had a great time.

Nice venue with great service and good up-close and personal atmosphere. We like Gaslight Anthem and their lead singer was there playing with his side band. Great show and fireworks next door at TD Ameritrade park.

We took in two shows at the Slowdown. Great, relaxed atmosphere with good mix of seating/standing. Drink prices are reasonable. Board games and photo booth provide fun distractions while waiting for the show to start.

I have only been to one seated show at showdown, and yes there were seats in the pit on the floor. I would check with the venue concerning a specific shows setup. Bob
