    Proud to have played here! Gorgeous venue, spacious historical and great sound/lighting!

    Check out the balcony for more crowded shows.

    Two floor set up, except that for bigger shows they reserve upstairs for VIP (worth the extra money). Bars on every floor and there are great bars/restos for before and after the show close by!

    Ótima qualidade de som, espaço amplo, ar condicionado bombando, serviço excelente e o show no dia que fui (do Common), idem!!

    Saw Common tonight. Great intimate venue. The crowd was great. Common did his thing. #HipHop

    Worth it to prepay for coat check. They fill up fast :(

  • Miguel R.

    Like most venues in NYC, bar with a wide hall and space enough to fit 6 musicians. The bad thing about this place stage is upstairs restrooms are downstairs, forget going while the band's playing

  • Joe C.

    Royally messed up the Foo Fighters show. Said not to line up until 3, tickets on sale at 5. Gave out wristbands to people there early and were sold out by 2:30. You will never see me here. Place sux.

    Probably my favorite venue in the city. All the greats have played here. Come early because it'll get packed.

    Never again will I go to a Grits and Biscuits it was a complete bad shit show and the police shut it down at1:30am #g&b

    The side risers and upper level were VIP last time I was here. You had to pay to upgrade to stand with an obstructed view. What the heck??

    Camille · November 11, 2014
  • Jessica A.

    Concerts get crunched. VIP tickets are worth the extra $$ because they come with a free drink and view is muuuuuch better. More room to bust move. 💃

    Jessica Almog · November 7, 2014
  • Janice G.

    If you can get here when doors open try to get to the balcony. Great view and you'll be sure to not lose any clothes when a mosh pit opens up next to you on the main floor.

    Janice Garingo · November 6, 2014
  • Lauren S.

    Super small so you are always close to the artist but it can get packed and very crowded quickly.

    Lauren SK · November 6, 2014
  • Chris T.

    Amazing venue. Smoke in the air, beer on the floor, and talent on the stage from opener to headline. Awesome night.

    Chris Thurber · November 2, 2014
  • John P.

    Nice small venue but drink before you get here if you're looking to get a buzz. $10 well drinks is the epitome of overpriced Manhattan cocktails.

    John P. · October 8, 2014
  • JD

    Buy tickets directly from box office to save on booking fees. Mixed drinks can get pricey so drink beforehand. Stage is visible from most parts of the arena but it does get warm near stage.

  • Melissa R.

    Great venue. Have been going here for ever and never had an issue getting close. Sound is also pretty great compared to other nyc venues.

    Melissa Rosenthal · September 22, 2014
  • Erika R.

    Buy tickets at the box office and they will charge a $2-$5 fee instead of Ticketmaster's $10 fee.

    Erika Renae · August 29, 2014
  • Stephen P.

    Very helpful staff that helped us bring packages of 700+ LPs up two flights of stairs and an elevator. Great sounding room and friendly bar staff.

    Stephen Parker · August 21, 2014
  • Jeff P.

    Coat check is $3 PER item and cash only. You can't take a backpack to the show floor.

    Jeff Petriello · August 13, 2014

    Cool place. Need to check bags though $3

  • Tamer B.

    It's small in there, so be prepared to either get the nut or the butt. They have a nice top seating that has tables and the view is great. Also a couple (2) lounges in the back for sitting.

    Tamer Bekir · March 13, 2014
  • Elana B.

    Coat check lost my jacket. On top of that, they were rude to me and didn't give me a refund for checking it in. Never coming back here after that treatment.

    Awesome show!

    Arrive early to get a good spot. If you're hungry they've got a few options for food that's reasonably priced.

    Kat Montgomery · December 11, 2013

    Worst sound technician ever. Or maybe just at my show. Turn the mics on, asshole. Unless the goal is to make every track an instrumental. If that's the case, kudos.
