Salt Lake City’s 2021 Venue Tour Series: The Commonwealth Room
Bringing music to South Salt Lake City is none other than The Commonwealth Room. A sister venue to The State Room, this larger 600-person capacity venue features incredible acoustics due to its renovations from its previous dwelling as a church.
Having opened its doors in 2018, the venue has seen a variety of nationally-acclaimed musicians and local acts grace its stage, including Graham Nash, Marcus King, Jim James, Orgone, Cody Johnson, Reckless Kelly, and more. The larger capacity venue features raised viewing platforms, ensuring there’s not a bad seat in the house for its attendees. The huge dancefloor gives ample space to dance and socialize under the venue’s top-of-the-line EV sound system and Martin visuals. With an outdoor box office, indoor lobby, and 40-foot wide blackout stage, The Commonwealth Room marks an important landmark venue in Salt Lake City’s music community.
As a 21+ venue, the atmosphere caters to its adults-only attendees with a full bar and often hosts food trucks outside the venue for onsite local snacks. While it is a standing room venue, there is limited first-come, first-serve bar stool seating for those who wish to sit.
The 2021 concert season will kick off for The Commonwealth Room in September with Tommy Castro & The Painkillers, followed by a sling of shows with DAWES, Noah Kahan, Hiss Golden Messenger, and more. For the venue’s full listing of upcoming events, visit its website.
