Originally a vaudeville hall, but later gutted out, the Lyric Hall is once again a premiere entertainment venue in New Haven. Today, restored to its former glory, the theater now presents musical performances by local as well as major artists. They also present special events like film festivals.
Reese Stadium is home of the Yale Bulldogs soccer and lacrosse teams. The modern stadium features state-of-the-art amenities for athletes and spectators alike. In addition to the regular matches played at the stadium, it also plays host to various other special sporting events.
Football fans everywhere are indebted to Yale coach Walter Camp for his 1879 codifying of American football as we know and love it today. Yale's Bulldogs play against other Ivy League teams from September through November, and, in alternate years, the renowned Harvard-Yale game attracts audiences and fans from afar. This is a big sporting event in New Haven and if you have the chance to catch a game, it is well worth it. Tailgate parties start the festivities prior to the match, so grab a picnic lunch and party in the parking lot before the big event. Games are played at Yale Bowl on Derby Avenue.
If you're a tennis fan, you MUST catch a game at the beautiful Connecticut Tennis Centre. Located on the Yale University campus, it is the fourth largest tennis centre in the world. Every year, history is created on these courts, which play host to the ATP International Tennis Tournament. Greats, such as Steffi Graf, Monica Seles and Martina Navratilova have slammed balls here. You'll also find university students sharpening their tennis skills when you stop by. Or if you're lucky, Venus Willaims or Lindsay Davenport in action.
From an open field with a few bleachers to a well-equipped stadium - Yale Field has come a long way. Its stands are a true witness to sporting history and have seen The Bulldogs and The New Haven Ravens in action. There is also a picnic area to relax in once you're done with all the sporting action. Don't fret if tickets for the latest game are sold out - you can always catch the action live on one of the TVs at the stadium's bar. Though the stadium is old and a bit dilapidated, its old world charm still attracts avid sports fans.
The Citywide Field House is a large arena used for multiple purposes. 100,000 square feet of space used for fairs, expos, events, fests to name a few. The Field House also features an indoor track, hardwood basketball floor and a sport/athletics floor. The Citywide Field House features seating of up to 3,500, and a large parking space accommodating around 900 vehicles.
Located at the craft beer bar, The Outer Space, Spaceland Ballroom is a concert venue that plays host to some wonderful performances. Steve Rodgers was not involved only in the conceptualization of this 300-capacity concert space; you can even catch occasional performances by his band Mighty Purple. Many other local acts also perform here.
The Outer Space is an art deco-inspired club, bar and music venue in Hamden, just outside of New Haven. It's a great place to kick back and chill out with friends while drinking a local brew. There's live music, open mic nights and plenty of events throughout the week.
Where else could you find a music venue that offers a vintage clothing boutique upstairs? Probably not many places, but The Space in Hamden offers a small performance area (fits about 150 people) with plenty of local bands and theme nights filling out the weekly schedule.
Popeye's Garage is an experimental community music hangout that is, literally, out back of Popeye's. Just around the corner from Yale, this on-and-off venue hosts concerts, parties and more.
Since the curtain rose in 1968, some of the Yale School of Drama's most notorious alums, including John Turturro, Meryl Streep, Angela Bassett, Tony Shaloub and Frances McDormund (to drop a few names) have performed on the stage of the Cabaret, housed in the basement of a beautiful Gothic building on the Yale campus. There is always something exciting on stage and a good chance that someone involved in the production will be famous someday. As a bonus, it all comes with good food and drink.
This private club, famously known as the Mory's Bar Temple, was formerly a home which has been converted into a clubhouse. Mory has been a special gathering place for the students and faculty of Yale University. It offers a mix of classic and contemporary dishes as well as complementing beverages. The banquet rooms are available for private and social events.
