The Center Stage Theatre in Atlanta is an entertainment complex consisting of three separate venues. The theater opened in 1966 as a performing arts venue before turning to primarily focus on music. The Center Stage is the largest of the venues with 750 permanent seats along with standing room in front of the stage. The Loft is located on the third floor of the complex. It features four full-service bars and has a view of the Midtown Atlanta skyline. Vinyl, the smallest, is a more intimate venue reserved for local and regional performers. The building took on the name Center Stage in the early '80s and slowly morphed into more of a music venue. The following decades would bring top performances by such artists as Duran Duran, Skillet and Lady Gaga. Notable performances at the Loft have included Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears and Kiss Rub Punch. James Blunt is among those who perform at Vinyl. Grab your tickets at StubHub.
