Attended a Christmas concert recently. Venue is small, 100 to 150 capacity, which gave it a more intimate appeal. Small bar which offered both alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments. Staff was friendly. Concert was great!

I must say THELMA is the place to have your event, any event! I had my husband's surprise birthday party there. The staff made it so easy from setting up and loading everything in my vehicle after. My guests always had there drinks full! The stage was perfect for the professional singer! This was an event of the year! I highly recommend Thelma for any and all events!
