  • Concert Ticket Agency

    Great venue, right in the heart of everything, Times Square style! Standing area in front, seats in the back. Stellar sound. Hey ladies, bathrooms are CLEAN and plentiful!

    Can be a little tough to find, but look for the curved jumbotron by the MTV building. Great place for corporate events, with comfortable seating. Arrive early & hang out downstairs at the bar.

  • This Week on Lot

    Great venue in Times Square. Security is real tough at entrance and while in side. Smoking area provided. Many bars, snack, coat check. Even at sold out show, plenty of room. Highly recommend.

    A great spot for live music in NYC, and the first stop of 2012 CMT On Tour (10/10/2012), headlined by Jake Owen, with special guests Love and Theft and Florida Georgia Line. Let loose and sing along!

    this is one of the best live music venues in NYC. They have an awesome concert lineup and give the option to sit or stand at most of their concerts with an unobstructed view. Great sound, modern feel.

    I saw a Snoop Dogg, Redman and Method man concert here as well as an Honor Society show...a cool and small venue where you can see the artist up close and personal!

    If you put an upscale movie theatre and a concert venue together you'd have this place. Overall good venue. Pit in the front, seating in the back.

    Alway get early entry tickets its a standing theatre with rear seats

    Missing something.

    Has a terrible policy for artists to meet fans. They won't allow bands to be at their merch tables. A singer wasnt even allowed in the lobby let alone allowed to take pics or sign.

    Most uncomfortable floor seats ever.

    Every time I come here it amazes me how poorly managed it is. Half of the staff on power trips. One of my least favorite show venues.

    The place looks GREAT but the acoustics are terrible.

    Fernessa U. · August 11, 2011
  • Morgan M.

    Saw Deftones/Dillinger Escape Plan here, pretty good venue. There is stadium type seating located in the back if you want to sit and rest for a few.

  • Jessica R.

    Don't buy cocktails or well style drinks at the bar...they're cheap on liquor, and not on price.

    Not a long wait to get into the venue once doors opened, nice friendly atmosphere, great place for a concert

    Tara S. · November 14, 2010
  • Elizabeth H.

    Nice space. Pick a good show, go with friends who like the music, and dance in the pit area. I saw The Cat Empire recently and the crowd really made the show for me.

  • Crystal Lissette

    Rock concerts aren't meant to have curfews. This place strictly enforces that. Nice restrooms. Stay on 1st level.

  • Erin H.

    Security guys are pretty rude. The guy ripped my tickets right out of my hand as I was taking them out of the envelope -- and I was moving pretty fast so there was really no need for that.

    Cat empire is literally the worst jam band I've ever had to listen to. It's painful.

    The crowds get a little crazy so if u can't handle being bumped stay away from this place

    Place was fine but it was chaos in the line at Times Square, bouncers didn't seem to know what was going on.

    Brigette K. · December 15, 2012

    Perpetual crowdsurfing! If you crowdsurf up to the stage, the guards are specifically trained to give you a soft cushy landing and cycle you out to the back to start the whole thing over again.

    Don't buy HDMI cables here. They soak it in vodka first.

    Amid Times Square is this venue--one of the few in NYC to require an escalator for entry. Drink prices are high, as you'd expect from the 'hood, but the excellent sound more than makes up for it.

    Be prepared to wait 30 minutes after the show if you checked your coat.

    Definitely going back to see five finger death punch, all that remains, hatebreed, and rains if they ever end up in new york again. Mosh pit was epic. Best concert thus far.
