    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!)

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Walk a few blocks over to the corner of Kenmare and Mulberry and check out Toby's Public House. They have the best brick-oven pizza and wood-fired specialties, great drinks and an awesome atmosphere!

    This New York mainstay is a must for any indie music fan. Don't leave too soon after the show because you can usually catch the talent having a drink at the end of the night in the downstairs bar.

    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.

    Any venue I rate, I say they're a great place to see live music. But Bowery Ballroom is by & far one of the greatest. Whether your on the floor or up in the balcony, you're sure to have a great time.

    Fans can be feral (even though they’ll never dance). If you step out for a smoke, leave plenty of time to get back anywhere near the front.

    People seem to hang downstairs during the opening act, but this is the wrong move. What you want to do is grab a stool at the mezzanine bar. Tip well, and buybacks are possible.

    One of my favorite places to see shows in NYC. Great acoustics, small enough space to feel intimate. Check out the downstairs bar.

    Did you know the Bowery Ballroom was built just before the stock market crash of 1929? Much of the 1929 construction still remains, including a VIP room behind the stage. Read more

    Go to the Bowery Ballroom to see a band, and move towards stage right, where it is less crowded. Too many people get stuck on one side of the room.
