The Rave / Eagles Club is a concert venue in the United States and landmark in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Rave hosts touring bands from across the globe.
The building is divided into six venues, making it theoretically possible to have six different acts playing at the same time.
The Eagles Ballroom:
The Eagles Ballroom is the building's showpiece, featuring a 25,000 square feet (2,300 m2) oval wooden dancefloor, originally installed when the building was constructed, in addition to a large, old-fashioned domed ceiling and a stage on one side.
Originally a ballroom, it has hosted everything from boxing matches to concerts to ethnic dances. There is a second floor, with a row of balconies around the oval, from one side of the stage to the other.The music video for CKY's song Close Yet Far was shot at The Rave.Certain interview clips from All Time Low's 2010 DVD, Straight to DVD were filmed on the roof of the building.
The Rave Bar:
The Rave Bar is a small intimate club.Numerous acts have made their Wisconsin debut here, including Dave Matthews Band, Nirvana, Les Claypool, The Features, Third Eye Blind, Smash Mouth, Blink-182, Creed, Pearl Jam, Red Is The Sea, Unlimited Production Music-UPM (featuring: Ewill, Rob, Killah and Prod) and Tantric.
The Rockstar Lounge:
The Rockstar Lounge, the newest addition to the building, is a VIP lounge with its own stage and performance setup. It was built in response to the increasing amount of musical acts requesting non-smoking shows and is equipped with special ventilation, thus enabling patrons to smoke while not disturbing others in the building.
Like the Rave Bar, Rave Hall and Eagles Hall, it features the venue's trademark authentic wooden bartops made from recycled bowling lanes that came from what is now The Eagle Hall.Many events from the original ECW were held at The Rave including Hardcore Heaven in 2000 and an episode of ECW on TNN in the same year.
