The Palladium is a state of the art performing arts center that is acoustically perfect, historically significant, imtimate and majestic. Built in 1925, and offering two very different stages within, the theater with it's 850-seat Hough Hall main concert Hall and the intimate, candlelit Side Door nightclub is your home for blues, jazz, classical, dance, theater, comedy, pop, opera, rock, Celtic, acoustic and more. We are in the heart of St. Petersburg's vibrant downtown and magnificent waterfront, within walking distance of the iconic Vinoy Hotel, museums, galleries, other theaters, sumptuous fine and casual dining. Located at the corner of 5th Ave N., at 3rd St. N., we offer free and ample parking in two lots -- one adjacent to and another across from the theater, which inside and out, provides full access for persons with disabilities. Whether we're presenting internationally recognized artists or emerging new ones, the Palladium's affordable tickets assure that the entire community can attend great programming year in and year out. In addition, we keep prices reasonable on our fine selection of upscale wine, beer and champagne which means that everyone can enjoy their favorite bubbly with friends.
