    Better than T5 but that's a huge endorsement! Bars have long lines and the acoustics are poor on the floor unless you get up front and close to the action.

    Went here for the Ratatat show. Awesome acoustics, lasers, lighting and smoke machines. One of the best venues for this type of show.

    Good acoustics! If you sit in the mezzanine section and you are short, do not sit in rows C, E, G, I, K.. Etc

    Huge space. Great venue.

  • @soyrev
    a proudly crap-assed establishment. "VIP" tickets here entail lines as long as regular ones, with a 5 min head start on entry being the only benefit. and water is SIX bucks, with no tap. hateful

  • Gordon M.
    If you're here for live music, grab a beer before beelining to the front of the floor area by the stage. It will be a long walk through the crowd otherwise.

    Will probably never come back here again. Staff was extremely RUDE and unorganized--had no idea what they were doing. Sucks to suck, Hammerstein. Sad good venues close and these shit shows still run.

    The women's bathrooms may be the worst of any concert venue in NYC. Filthy, dilapidated, no locks and mostly inaccessible from the main floor. Will NEVER come back
