    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.

    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!

    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

    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.
