    Legendary 'older sister' to Radio City. Flawless acoustics. From Opera to rock concerts. Since 1989 The Allman Brothers hold an annual rite of spring series "The Beacon Run." here every year.

    The Beacon began as a movie palace in 1929, and has since hosted artists from the Rolling Stones to Bob Dylan. The Allman Brothers' regular stints here were immortalized on "Peakin' At The Beacon." Read more

    One of the best places in the city to catch a live performance. Fantastic old-time, authentic New York venue to see a band, with what feels like the original, upholstered seating.

    One of the most beautiful concert venues in the city!! Make sure to look up at the ceiling.

  • New York Habitat

    A historic theatre perfect for everything from a comedy show to musical acts. It's small and broken up into 3 levels so there's not really a bad seat in the house. Seeing a concert here is a must!

    Created as smaller Roxy Theater. Hosted 2011 Tony Awards. Shows have included Michael Jackson, Rolling Stones (for Bill Clinton's 50th bday) & Allman Brothers (every yr since 1989). More info in blog. Read more

    See any rock concert here ... especially since it was just renovated. Faves for me have been The Black Crowes and Dave Matthews/Tim Reynolds.

    Make sure to take in the great interior architecture including the metallic lion stage right of the balconies. I love the seats in this venue, movie theater style!

    This is one of the best theaters around NYC. Awesome acoustics. A seated venue but the seats seem ancient. The foyer is really amazing.

    First row of the upper balcony is a winning seat.

    The space is small enough that you feel like you’re oh-so-close to the performers (we could almost touch Lionel Richie at one show) yet showy enough that you're wowed by its gorgeous design. Perfect. Read more · April 25, 2012

    One of the best venues to see live music. Also one of the more expensive ones. They don't allow cameras so don't bother bringing one.
