About

Karl Hall is an intimate performance space in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania that presents original music and comedy. Opened in 2017, the venue has a capacity of 130 standing patrons for general-admission shows and 85 for seated shows.

Housed in the basement of the historic art-deco Union Building (the Polish Union insurance building, opened in 1938), the downtown venue was named in honor of the late Kevin Karl, a local musician and avid concertgoer.
