Venue Features
The Scene:
The World Famous Agora Theatre and Ballroom is a Cleveland institution and one of the most storied venues in Rock n' Roll History. 
Design:

In 2018, the venue experienced a complete remodel from head-to-toe with a mission to preserve both the legacy of the Agora and the history of the building at 5000 Euclid Avenue. Paying particular attention to the history of the venue, the building started telling its own story. Peeling back decades of gritty layers, the original pre-deco tiled entryway was revealed and preserved leaving scars and imperfections that hinted at the stories held by the 105-year old venue. Also discovered and preserved were the WHK radio station call letters indelibly incorporated into the terrazzo entryway. The central theme to the renovation quickly became clear – stay true to the past by uncovering and celebrating the history of the room as authentically as possible. Leave some of the character left by the people that patronized the venue, fingerprints of the artists and patrons that sewed the Agora into the fabric of Cleveland. Be good stewards of a building and a reputation owned by the people. Find the story in the history.

A new chapter in the Agora's history is being written...come be part of the story.
