Blue Ocean Music Hall
The small scale of the Blue Ocean Event Center’s Music Hall—most seats are within 50 feet of the stage—creates an intimate atmosphere for comedy events, including shows by local favorites like Lenny Clarke and Bob Marley. Complete your night out with dinner at one of the two in-house restaurants.
