Charlie Levy's stylish venue and nightspot has earned a rarefied aura among both music fans and hipsters alike thanks to its many amenities geared towards concertgoers, as well as a posh atmosphere and a distinctive lineup of nightly shows. The Crescent's main room boasts bleacher-like stadium seating along the back wall, which allows patrons a clear view of whatever nationally known art rock tastemakers, indie-folk troubadours, or Pitchfork favorites happen to be gracing the stage without ever having to jockey for position amidst a typically packed house. Not that there's ever a bad seat to be had, as choice acoustics and a primo sound system ensure that every single note is crystal clear. Meanwhile, the Crescent's urbane bar and lounge out front offers a candlelit milieu where scenesters, bon vivants, and urbanites quaff luxe libations, trade the latest gossip over burritos and tacos, or partake in free performances by local DJs and musicians.
