Nice venue but...
Oct 20, 2014 by: Mel1776 from Washington DC, District of Columbia
They don't enforce the no videotaping policy. If you are sitting behind folks who are taping, it interferes with your enjoyment of the show. Tickets aren't cheap. This no enforcement policy makes no sense. And the folks who are doing it are violating copyright laws.
Ruined by Rule Breakers
Oct 20, 2014 by: Kathy0625 from Nashville, Tennessee
This review has nothing to do with the quality of the Frankie Valli show we saw at the Strathmore last week. The performance, the second we have seen this year, was out of this world. I see a lot of live music performances here in Nashville. And when we are told here that recording of live performances is strictly forbidden, we respect the performers and our fellow fans enough to obey the guidelines. Those who break the rules are dealt with swiftly and surely. We invested in 3rd row orchestra seats at Strathmore and were prepared to enjoy another magical evening. Of course there was the expected announcement that recording would not be tolerated. Okay, ready, set, go! Almost immediately, patrons all across the 1st and 2nd rows pulled out all manner of recording devices, obstructing the views of those behind them and completely distracting attention away from the show we had all paid to see. You would think that the ushers are paid, at least in part, to make sure that all the patrons have a good experience at the venue. Such is absolutely not the case here!!! We were shocked and appalled to note ushers sitting with, smiling at, and chatting with the very patrons who were flaunting the rules and ruining the experience for everyone else. Kindly check the two female ushers (tall blonde and short brunette) who were working orchestra right on Thursday, 10/17/2014, and they will tell you that my sister and I complained again and again, only to be completely ignored. I would never, ever, patronize this venue again and would urge all music lovers to avoid it at all costs.
Afternoon tea party!

We attended an afternoon tea party at Strathmore during December for a co-worker's retirement celebration. It was small and intimate and the music was very enjoyable. I'm not a big 'tea' person (I had the champagne!) but she is and she loved it. The food was just what you'd expect and fun to try. The tea pots were all different and very fun. There is also a small gift shop with some really unique items where many of us purchased a holiday gift or two.
Great ambience and acoustics!
