First of all let me say that most of these venues are generally great on talent and poor on the wine and dine section. My expectations for the food and drinks are never very high when visiting a place like this. In my experience most...More

Great dancefloor, great light show, and great dancers on stage! Drinks are expensive compared to many other places here but otherwise an all-around super fun place to see a show and this is NYC. Want to join? txt Adam 609.948.4732 who promotes these clubs.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

I think it depends on the popularity of the act. For a super popular show I would get there when doors open. Note however, there are very few non VIP seats. Most of the Highline is SRO.
