An intimate BYOB that features live music, artists, comedians, comedic plays, photographers, and eclectic films, up close and personal.
The Living Room at 35 East is an intimate, 40-seat boutique listening room in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. It combines the best aspects of a house concert – comfortable chairs and couches with pillows – along with a top-notch sound system for your listening pleasure. We offer musical entertainment in a variety of genres as well as lectures, comedians, films, plays and poetry. Singer-songwriter Laura Mann opened the venue in March 2018, and she looks forward to your patronage.
Complimentary BYOB is included in the ticket price. We will assist with opening your bottles and providing glassware. Currently we sell bottled water and soft drinks and we ask that you not bring in these items to the venue. We're in the process of adding food items to the menu for your enjoyment – stay tuned!
The Living Room is a listening room. We ask that as a courtesy to the artists and other audience members that you refrain from conversation during the performances. Remember to silence your cell phones and devices. We also request that once the show begins that you stay seated until the end of the performance.
Unless otherwise noted, performances begin at 8:00 pm. Doors open at 7:00 pm. We suggest arriving well in advance of the show time so you can obtain seating, get your drinks ready and get comfortable.
Because of our limited capacity we highly recommend advance ticket purchase through the links to Brown Paper Tickets next to all the show listings on this site. There is a nominal fee for this service. We will sell tickets at the door, if available, on a CASH ONLY basis.
The Living Room is located in the heart of Ardmore surrounded by restaurants, bars, and shops, giving you many dinner and browsing options prior to the show. There are several parking lots with free parking after 6:00 pm within walking distance of the venue. There is a parking garage on Cricket Ave. The SEPTA Ardmore station on the Paoli/Thorndale train line is just a couple of blocks away and the SEPTA 44, 103, 105 and 106 routes also serve Ardmore. For more information about these transit options visit septa.org.
The Living Room is handicap accessible and we invite anyone with limitations to join us. We request advance notice to prepare for your arrival and we will do everything possible to accommodate your needs and make your visit a pleasurable one. Please contact Laura at email@example.com for details.
