Wife and I finally made a visit to the Visulite Theatre last night. We had been talking about going for a while, but just got around to going last night. Its only a few blocks from out house so its very convenient.
Wow, this is one of the best places to hear live music ive ever been in. Mostly adult crowd, great acoustics, great view of the stage, really nice.

if you like live music, try it out. Heck, id like to see the band tonite..

How would you rate the 3? It would be hard to beat Visulite.

Visulite is the best then Tremont and the Neighborhood Theatre which is exactly that....a theatre so it's hard to move around and stand up/dance.

I guess it depends what type of band or show you're going to see

The Double Door (located in Elizabeth in Charlotte) is my favorite for Blues & Rock:

Charlotte's oldest live music establishment, the Double Door Inn, has been bringing in local, regional, and national acts since its doors opened on December 22, 1973. The Double Door Inn has gained national recognition for bringing in the best in blues artists.

The blues acts which laid the foundation for this local mainstay included the Nighthawks, T-Birds, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Willie Dixon, John Hammond, Junior Walker, Matt "Guitar" Murphy, and Bob Margolin. Many other artists have taken the stage including Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Luther Allison, Elvin Bishop, Gatemouth Brown, Joe Ely, JJ Cale, Wet Willie, Roy Buchanan, Kenny Neal, Jim Thackery, Tinsley Ellis, Tom Principato, and Delbert McClinton.

Eric Clapton also took the stage at the Double Door Inn with the Legendary Blues Band in the early '80s.

Isn't that a biker bar? People used to warn me to stay away from there years ago, that there was a lot of trouble and fights would break out.

This is news to me, I have never seen any bikers there. Thursday night is jazz-bikers usually don't go for that type of music

Bumping this thread, hope y'all don't mind!
Double Door used to be rough in the old days (it's been around forever!) but it is cool now-- older crowd (I was a younger one there and I am 31), good music.

I like Madison's right off Tryon-- great musicians there especially Thur-Sun (I think) from 7-10pm. Also, Blue (Hearst Tower, enter on College St. Valet parking avail) has live jazz most nights and I love, love the atmosphere.
