FAQs

What ages are allowed in The Agora?

The venue is all ages, with a few exceptions. Certain events are age restricted due to the nature of that event. If a show is in fact age restricted, this will be noted on The Agora website and on the actual concert ticket.

Is parking available?

Yes. The Agora has several parking lots available. Parking can be found on Prospect Avenue., E. 46th and Euclid Avenue; our main lot is behind the venue at 5001 Prospect Ave. Parking attendants will be on duty throughout the duration of the event. The price of parking varies on the event, but is usually between $10 - $20. All parking staff will be wearing Agora shirts.

Is The Agora Handicap accessible?

Yes, whether the show is in the Theatre or Ballroom, we are fully handicap accessible. When arriving at The Agora, you would simply come through the main doors and alert event staff that you need handicap seating and they will escort you to where you need to be. You do not need a special ticket for handicap seating; general admission is the best ticket for you or your guest.

This is contingent upon the band playing that night. Please call 216-881-2221 the day of the event to find out for sure. Please exercise caution if you plan on bringing these devices, and be prepared for the chance that you may have to remove them from our premises. For the most part any professional camera (a camera with a removable lense) you would need to have a photo pass from the act or the venue.
