People tend to check in during these times:
Irving Plaza was converted into a rock music venue in 1978 and has since hosted U2, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton & more establishing itself as NYC’s premier venue.
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.
The best place to see your favorite band! Small & intimate.
One of the few great small music venues left in Manhattan!
Coat check line goes out the door at the end of the night, get your coat early.
Small intimate space. Great sound, good show selection.
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 :(
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
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.
Lotta good memories of legendary shows at this joint.
Had a blast at this spot! Will definitely return.
Like a lessy stuffy BB kings, still got that intimate feel tho. Likes.
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??
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.
Super small so you are always close to the artist but it can get packed and very crowded quickly.
Amazing venue. Smoke in the air, beer on the floor, and talent on the stage from opener to headline. Awesome night.
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.
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.
Buy tickets at the box office and they will charge a $2-$5 fee instead of Ticketmaster's $10 fee.
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.
Coat check is $3 PER item and cash only. You can't take a backpack to the show floor.
Cool place. Need to check bags though $3
Dope venue for concerts! The bars located everywhere are clutch and I def had the time of my life with my group of chums!
Great intimate venue for live music.
I have seen so many great bands here and it was so great that our company had our annual party here long live Irving plaza
Watch noteworthy and up-and-coming musical acts at the historic Irving Plaza.
Always say yes to Snarky Puppy. Always.
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.
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.
New Year's Eve 2014 Party at Irving Plaza - New York, NY early @ Tuesday December 31, 2013.Grab Your Tickets @
Reggie watts opener?
Arrive early to get a good spot. If you're hungry they've got a few options for food that's reasonably priced.
Used to be the best, now the WORST venue - money hungry owners! Such bullshit! F this place!!
Since when do we pay $3 for a coat check!?
More like Serving the Swerving underage.
The sound is horrible under the balconies, much better on the open floor.
Great, great venue, security is so nice (but I wouldn't wanna f w them!)
Moshpit and crowd surf all day long
