    Great concert venue.

  • Ina L.

    Their stereo system sucks and the low bass just couldn't come out.

    Ina Li · October 3
  • Trent

    Solid venue, multiple bars. Didn't get too overcrowded and drinks were reasonable for a music venue.

    Trent · September 30
  • Miguel R.

    This is a classic among music venues in NYC, one small ones have to say, but with a lot of magic within its walls.

    Miguel Robledo · September 17
  • Gabriel H.

    For a good view of the show, watch from the balcony near the soundboard. Can get up there with general admission.

    Gabriel Hayes · September 16
  • Gabriel H.

    If you get to the show early, hang out at the bar downstairs.

    Awesome music venue in SoHo. Gets very good acts but has a more intimate atmosphere with the performers.

    Gabriel Hayes · September 16
  • Kim B.

    Intimate venue. Good for up close and personal performance experiences.

    This is a great place

    Good gig venue.

    Joe Brolgs · August 5
  • Peter K.

    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 😊

  • Javier R.

    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.

    Javier Ramos · May 28
  • 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.

    Mike McBryan · April 6
  • 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.

    Monica Cullen · April 1
  • 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
  • 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.

    Sean Fleming · December 8, 2014
  • İpek A.

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

    İpek A. · November 28, 2014
  • Janice T.

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

    Janice Taylor · November 6, 2014
  • Jade N.

    Get your music fix here.

    Jade Ng · October 22, 2014

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

  • Melissa R.

    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.

    ben m · August 28, 2014
  • 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.

    Gordon Mei · May 21, 2014
  • The Infinite Zoo

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

    Great place to see small concerts.

    The sound here sucks!!

    Party all night with your host Panty Matt!

    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.

    SPIN · October 15, 2013
  • 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...
