Here for a School of Rock Concert. Love that it is handicapped accessible and there has been a good air flow keeping us all cool even though it is hot outside. They have a bar with water handy and a cafe right outside. Thank you for letting SOR use your facility! A+++. Best concert location SOR has used so far!!! Bleacher seating and standing room is awesome!

Love this venue. It's small yeah, but that just means you are closer to the show! They always have a great line up of interesting bands that roll through, not to mention Parts and Labor is next door so you can just pop over for food after your show!

Had a great time at the show last nigh. Staff is super friendly and helpful, drinks were affordable especially by Durham standards. Looking forward to coming back Saturday.

I haven't been to this venue in years. Like pre pandemic. It was so great to be back! There's now a ton of construction going on in the area, and it's great to see! Sadly parking still isn't the easiest thing here, but if you bring some easy cash you'll be ok, that or walk from surrounding blocks. The staff is awesome as ever, friendly and personable. Bar service moves super quick and has a great selection. If you get there early you could grab some seating off to the side of the room, either way there's good visibility in the hall and I've never felt super packed when at a show here. You've got lots of good food around the building, great music selection at the venue itself, definitely consider supporting these folks with your patronage!

I like the vibe. It is vibrant, lots of people to talk to, bar tenders are nice. Young crowd, mostly educated people. Dogs allowed which is nice if you have one. There are few families here too. Cocktails are delicious and are strong. I have no tried the food but will next time.

Nice small-format music venue. The attached food and drinks place is nice, too! Staff were super friendly, drink prices are quite reasonable for the quality you get.

Saw OFF! there this past week, great spot & sound. It was loud! and a cool set-up semi-outdoor bar next door and patio. One of the coolest club experiences I've had recently, laid-back staff no crazy security or anything. I would recommend it highly!

Fantastic small live venue and restaurant. Happily, food is served until midnight so you don't have to go home hungry. We saw The Lemon Twigs here with Chris Stamey: a perfect space for these guys. There's some seating if you don't want to stand through a long gig.

Always happy to see a show at Motorco. Nice venue, good drinks. Parts and Labor for tasty pre-show food next door. A little bit of seating if that's your thing. And a fine schedule of acts.

First time there and first impressions were great. We ate at Parts and Labor before seeing a show at the venue. Staff were friendly and efficient with orders. The sesame udon salad was perfect and the samosas were great. Worth the late night drive.

Have only been once but it was a great experience. Staff was friendly and helpful. Nice outdoor seating. Bathroom was clean. Didn't try the food but the menu has some great options. Would definitely return! The only note of improvement I could give is the chairs for the event. Super uncomfortable lol. I don't know how often they do seated events, though.
