Security is rude and unprofessional. They would throw you out if they spot you taking videos with your camera. Would yell at you and not let you say a word as if you stole something. If only you do that then it's your problem. However, whenever I'm at this place, I see the whole crowd at the stage (and some other spots) gloving with their cameras. And nothing would happen to them. They would tape the whole show and go home. For this reason, I don't understand their "selective" policy - if you don't allow people taking videos, then throw every person out who's doing this. I think that the people who run 'Irving' should take this factor into consideration if they want those who come to see the show to enjoy the venue. Nevertheless, the place is nice and the sound is good comparatively to other venues of this type .
Pros: Sound, good bands
Cons: unprofessional security, crowded
