    Emily King公演を観ました。雰囲気、音響、ライブ、ともに素晴らしかったです。ゆるく観たい時は是非2階へ。

    Bland and boxy, but New York would be worse without it.

    Peter Kelly · June 2
  • Pieter V.

    Know the address before you go because it's almost invisible on the outside 😊

    It is a great venue. I came here to see Kiasmos and Beacon, and the atmosphere downstairs was very intimate. Upstairs, everything was definitely amazing.

  • Mike H.

    Intimate shows. Amazing vibe.

    Mike Hopkins · April 21
  • Ashley R.

    My new favorite spot for shoes. It's set up similarly to Terminal 5 with the second level but much more intimate.

    Ashley Rose · April 6
  • Mike M.

    Such a great venue! Can't tell you how much I appreciate a good show AND being able to get to the bar / bathroom without trampling / shoving people. Makes the experience 10x better.

  • Lindsay T.

    Fantastic venue. Great space. Chill vibe

  • Ryan T.

    Great small venue, not bad seat in the house go see great bands. Saw Rainer Maria on NYE and it was excellent

    Ryan Thomas · April 1
  • Monica C.

    Bar upstairs is cash only! Downstairs takes cards.

  • Ranu R.

    My favorite venue in NYC. Never crowded even when sold out, amazing stage views and little to no wait for drinks. What's not to like?

    Ranu Rajkarnikar · March 16
  • Robin J.

    This is a wonderful venue for seeing artists. The show will be excellent but you'll still feel close to the band.

    Robin Johannsen · March 16
  • Rafael G.

    Péssimo serviço!

    Rafael Guerra · March 5
  • Alex F.

    One of the last intimate ballrooms in NYC to see some up and coming acts

    Alex Fish · March 3
  • Karissa D.

    The sound here is incredible!

    Karissa Durler · February 9
  • Jason S.

    Similar set up and size to Music Hall of Williamsburg: solid acts and it allows fans to head upstairs to escape the the crowd and snag a few beers. Great spot for shows (and close to subways!)

    Jason Schulweis · December 29, 2014
  • Sean F.

    Hang out at the bar downstairs and chill with a five dollar PBR. If PBR is not your thing they have a bar fully stocked.

    Very cool concert place. But never drink wine over there. It can kill your stomach.

    İpek A. · November 28, 2014

    Get here when doors open or you will be stuck waaay in the back.

    Great sound, and I especially like the view from the balcony.

    Hands down the best venue to see live music in the city. I've been coming here over 10 years and can't imagine the music scene without it.

    Melissa Rosenthal · September 22, 2014
  • Ryan A.

    Great place to catch a band before they get famous. Small, intimate venue. Seats along the balcony if you get early enough but you really want to be down on the floor.

    Ryan Ambs · September 13, 2014
  • Marcelo D.

    Good Music. Bad service. Rude security guy really rude.

    Marcelo Damaso · September 12, 2014
  • ben m.

    Head to the balcony, the views and sound are great from up there, you can avoid the crowds on the floor (if you want to) and you can get a drink quick from the bar up there.

  • Wesley B.

    Great place for a concert. Saw Johnnyswim and it was very nice!

    Wesley Batista · August 21, 2014
  • Peter W.

    My favorite concert venue in NY. Great acoustics, w/ an intimate feel. They do a great job of booking indie bands that complement the space. Don't forget to check out the balcony!

    The Bowery Ballroom has been one of the city's premiere rock venues since opening on the Lower East Side in 1997, hosting hip bands by the boatload in its intimate, 550-person space. Read more

    Get there early to grab a spot on the balcony right behind the soundboard. You’ll have the perfect view and nobody will knock into your drink.

    The Bowery Presents · June 6, 2014
  • David T.

    Arrive early enough and you might snag a table on the balcony.

    David Taylor · June 1, 2014
  • Gordon M.

    Order from the bar upstairs and watch from the mezzanine.

    So close to the stage you're practically in the band.

    You will almost always get served faster at the balcony bar.

    There's a staircase downstairs next to the ladies room that lets you out right next to the stage.

  • Himali W.

    Security is intense. Was drinking a beer, and security asked to see my wristband even though I was wearing a sleeveless shirt and my band was visible? Good thing I'm in my thirties...

    Himali W · October 11, 2013
  • Jeff P.

    I've been coming here for over a decade now, and it's still one of the best places to see a show that I've ever been to.

    Jeff Petriello · September 18, 2013
  • Nicole T.

    Great venue. Intimate and old school

    Nicole Thompson · September 16, 2013

    No re-entry from doors to the show? What the hell sense does that make you fascist fools?!

    Adam · September 13, 2013
  • Sameepa S.

    Great great place to have an interesting dance/musical experience. Sticky floor..but you get passed that soon enough!

    Sameepa Shetty · August 18, 2013

    Get behind the soundboard if you can
