I am really impressed with how well run this place is. It was raining the day of the concert, so they let us in early. Plenty of space to stand as close or as far from the stage as you want. Ample, clean bathrooms!!! Very...More

When I got to the venue I thought to ask the staff where they had handicap seating, if they had it at all. The friendly staff member said to go directly across the audience area and I'd find a roped off space, very near to...More

Venue is good sound-wise however, if you don't get a good spot on the main floor you are scuppered. What you can't see on the picture are the posts holding up the balcony area which obscure the view. At $23 dollars for two drinks it...More

Went with my daughter and thought the venue was great. We were on ground floor general admission and it was easy to get there, line moved quick, bar was reasonable and not too busy. Would recommend it as a venue.

One of my favorite venues in NYC. Excellent vantage points from various places. Plentiful, clean bathrooms with attendants. Upstairs bar very comfortable and great viewing/filming area.

This venue is ok in my option compared to other venues. Coat check is $4 and if you need to smoke and catch a breather, there is a upstairs outdoors area for that with bathroom and a bar there. 2nd level of the venue has...More
