    Drinks are $$ but the Angry Orchard is worth it. Opt for VIP/balcony space to avoid crowds!

    This place fucking sucks. Hot, smelly, horrible speaker quality. Disgusting. Don't even drink it's too difficult to get to a bathroom. Could be way nicer.

    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!

    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

    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??

    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. 💃

    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.

    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.

    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.
