Delmar Hall: The Loop’s Newest Addition to the Concert Scene
This two-year-old venue—the newest addition to the concert scene in the Delmar Loop—has close ties to two of its neighbors. So close, in fact, that the same site hosts all the ticket sales. The big kid on the block is The Pageant, which fits between 1,000 and 2,300 music fans. Just down the street is the Duck Room at Blueberry Hill, with a maximum capacity of 340. Delmar Hall is designed to land perfectly between them, hosting between 350 and 750 concert-goers, depending on the configuration.
Co-owners Joe Edwards and Patrick Hagin also own The Pageant, and Edwards own Blueberry Hill. Between the three venues, acts have a series of stepping stones—and audiences can choose the type of experience that fits their mood, their taste and their wallet.
Bands at Delmar Hall range from acoustic blues to pure rock to progressive bluegrass—which happens to be the genre for the New Year’s Eve show, featuring Yonder Mountain String Band. Thanks to the complete renovation the space underwent, the owners were able to configure everything the way they wanted, from seating options to the sounds and lights. The result is modern and flexible, where everything from comedy to country feels like a perfect fit.
