The Senate Columbia - Columbia's Premier Mid-Sized Concert Hall
Building on its success at its Charleston location, The Senate Columbia has filled the void for mid-sized concert venues in South Carolina's capital. Bringing top-notch musical performances and a variety of other community events to Columbia, The Senate has made it quite clear that it's here to stay.
The Senate Columbia History
The Senate Columbia officially opened its doors on September 16, 2014, leading with a show headlined by Washed Out. The venue is managed by Music Farm Productions, which already owned another successful concert venue, Music Farm Charleston. The purchase of the The Senate Columbia building marked an expansion of the brand that has so far been quite successful.
The Senate Columbia Events
The Senate Columbia is first and foremost a concert hall, so concerts are standard fare here. The venue has seen performances by O.A.R., Yonder Mountain String Band, of Montreal, Third Eye Blind, Young the Giant, Collective Soul, Sister Hazel, Neon Indian and the Dave Rawlings Machine. It frequently hosts tribute bands such as Who's Bad and Rumours, in addition to frequent jazz showcases and workshops.
However, The Senate makes it its business to provide patrons with a broad variety of acts. Apart from music, it also hosts other events, including Farm to Table dinner and show combinations, festivals like Oktoberfest and even a BANFF Mountain Film Festival screening.
The Senate Columbia Seating Layout
The Senate Columbia's branch is a concert hall with a capacity of 1200. Tickets are sold for general admission and the venue provides standing room only, although there is limited seating around the bar as well as on the patio. The venue offers the convenience of a full service bar to its patrons.
Columbia, South Carolina
As South Carolina's capital and largest city, there are lots of opportunities for fun and entertainment beyond the doors of Music Farm in the charming city of Columbia. Lovers of the outdoors will enjoy exploring the Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Garden, while history buffs may be better off on a tour of the South Carolina State House or perusing the exhibits at the South Carolina State Museum. Sports fans can catch a minor league baseball game at Spirit Communications Park, home of the Columbia Fireflies.
Visitors looking for other live entertainment should check out the offerings at the Colonial Life Arena, which hosts everything from A-list bands to Disney on Ice to the Harlem Globetrotters. For a more intimate scene, check out the live music at the New Brookland Tavern, one of the city's oldest music venues.
Although The Senate Columbia's grand opening was originally scheduled for September 5, 2014, it was pushed back to the September 16, 2014 due to last-minute construction issues.
