“Billy was great. Sound was awful.”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Billy was great,. Sound was terrible. Those cement and brick walls can't handle the volume. It sounded like mud. We couldn't even hear what he was saying when was talking! Worst sound of any venue of this size. Maybe it's better with an acoustic act.
Some videos surfaced form the June 1 show that sounded very good. These had to be made 5-10 feet from the stage, where the speaker towers don't overwhelm you. I found the staff to be very nice.

“Terrible Venue. Terrible staff.”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

We are avid concert goers and have been to venues all over New York and the world large and small. There was an issue at tonights show June 1. Security and the owner really were ill prepared and didnt handle it well causing a bad experience for a whole section. So there is a chance that drunken fools that are usually handled with appropriately at better venues might ruin your time. Plus the sound was muddy. Not good equipment or not worked well this time. A shame. Has potential but serious beginners growing pains. I hope they are able to weather this and learn from thier mistakes. A lot of people I spoke with this evening will not be returning.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

We visited THE SPACE back in December of 2013 and very pleasantly surprised. It was the perfect venue for the featured artist and allowed us to feel a personal connection to the concert. We are looking forward to attending more concerts and programs offered at THE SPACE and we really feel it is just a matter of time before it becomes THE VENUE sought performers. Loved the intimate feel of THE SPACE and the fact that all the seats are great.

“Nice with a few issues”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Nicely done venue with an excellent sound system. Really liked the way they decorated it. However, the bar area is very uncomfortable with very limited seating. Also odd that they have photos of fancy Martinis yet they can make only the most basic of mixed drinks (with way too much ice in them). Our big complaint was false information regarding the actual start time. Both the tickets and the online information stated that the show would start at 6:30 with the doors opening at 5:30. We arrived at six only to find that the show was not to begin until 7:30. This was a significant disappointment as far as our evening went since we would have gone out to dinner beforehand had we known we had that much time. Halfway through the show they announced there would be a 10 minute intermission. The actual intermission time was 30 minutes, which was way too long. The management seems to have problems with accurate information when it comes to time. Bottom line: we enjoyed the actual show but we were annoyed enough by the long waits that it partly spoiled our evening.

“Million Dollar Makeover!”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

This venue was the old movie theatre that has had a million dollar makeover. It is beautiful inside and a great concert space.
