"There's no safer bet on Saturday night than the State Theatre (220 N. Washington St., Falls Church; 703-237-0300, www.thestatetheatre.com), a great old movie house converted to a music hall with a full restaurant and bar. The fare used to be almost exclusively blues, but offerings have expanded to include reggae, rock and more, with a mix of area and national acts. You have the option of taking them in while hanging at one of several bars, lounging at a table, or grooving on the dance floor."
-Washingtonian Magazine, Best of Washington Issue
"Astonishing sound & light... not a bad seat in the house... food, music, dancing... the State Theatre delivers."
- Washington Post
"After falling quiet for about a decade, [the vacant years after the movie theatre closed], the venue benefited from a multimillion dollar renovation in 1999 that added a large dance floor, dining area and two full-service bars to the main auditorium yet kept intact the original stage and 200 balcony seats. State Theatre, now one of the area's most popular music venues, often hosts the Washington Area Music Association's annual awards show [The Wammies] (scheduled February 15).
Music fans of all ages flock to this storied theater for shows that feature well-known reggae and jam bands as well as artists of other genres. Less than a mile from the East Falls Church Metro, State Theatre dazzles with impressive sound and light shows, plus it offers unobstructed stage views whether from the pulsing dance floor or from the tamer balcony"

"I don’t think the State Theatre in Falls Church, VA ever has a bad show."
-Mike Danko Brightest Young Things
The show was great and I’m becoming more and more fond of the State Theater as a venue. The management is relaxed and courteous, the sound’s good and the on-tap beer selection
