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

    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.

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

    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.

    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!)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...
