Everything about the Shalin Liu is carefully designed to optimize the experience of listening to live music.

The Cabot, Beverly

More than 100 years ago, the Cabot was built as a vaudeville theater. Today, the historic theater serves as an intimate and inviting venue for a striking range of performers, including nostalgic favorites, acclaimed cover bands, and beloved independent artists. And the theater’s soaring arches and ornate décor make the space as much a part of the experience as the music. 286 Cabot St., Beverly, 978-927-3100,
