    They've played host to some big names like Phoenix and Blink-182; the space is small enough that concertgoers at those shows are treated to an intimate couple of sets not afforded by mammoth venues. Read more

    Great music venue - intimate but still gets top bands. Head upstairs if you want to avoid a crowd and still catch the action (the bar upstairs is also a great way to grab beers w/o fighting the crowd)

    MHOW is a great place for a concert. Sound is amazing, always a great view of the band. Upstairs they have great bench seats. The bar prices aren't too bad, most of the time they have happy hour.

    Head to the platform opposite the side you entered. Along the back is a ledge that you boost yourself up to for a clear view of the stage. And the cops can't do shit.

    Lean against the railing on one of the raised areas on the right side and look ultra moody. Bonus: the spot has the best cell reception in the joint, so you can instagram to your heart's content.

    Williamsburg is still cool. This venue is solid, sound fantastic, and has a constant stream of incredible music talent. Pack in with the crowd on the floor.

    One of the best and friendliest music venues in NYC. They even have a live feed of the concert, so you won’t miss a beat when getting drinks for all your friends.

    Almost a splitting image of Bowery Ballroom. The drink situation is a little slower and you have to leave the main room to get a drink. Go the second the artist says, "this is a new one."

    Formerly the site of the scrappy but charming Northsix, the Music Hall of Williamsburg has risen to become one of Brooklyn's most notable clubs, complete with balcony area and basement bar.

    Standing in line for coat check is maybe the closest equivalent to purgatory. I wouldn't wish it upon anyone and suggest you don't either. On positive note, beers aren't bad! $7 for Stella. Hell yeah.

    This is Cults favorite music venue. They say it's an amazing venue to play and the best place to see shows. The bar downstairs stays open late and is great for post-show mingling.

    Happy hour $5 drafts and $4 well drinks between doors and the opener! Don't forget about the $10 credit min and the balcony bar if the basement bar isn't to your liking!

    Basically Brooklyn's Bowery Ballroom, but with a warmer vibe and better downstairs bar. Incredible place for concerts, intimate but just the right size to get a party going.

    The sound is the best at the upstairs lounge and in the elevator. That being said the layout is ok and the staff aren't totally rude. Will only come back for my favorite bands.

    With Glasslands gone, this stands as the clear-cut best music venue in all the 'Burg. From the same folks who brought you Bowery Ballroom, also exact same layout

    Nicest and best sounding room to see music in Brooklyn, possibly all of NYC. Take a minute to at least just roam through the posh upstairs lounge / balcony.

    Tecante tall boy with lime is 6$ and the perfect beer. Screen in bar so you can see when the main acts go on. Coat check is 2$ an item.

    I went to see Ryn Weaver, and had a great time. The venue is not that big which I like because it makes the concert more intimate.

    With great viewing from all points of the venue and a multiple tier setup – Music Hall Of Williamsburg is one of the most user-friendly venues going around. Read more

    If you're waiting for a show to start, sit downstairs at the bar and watch the stage from the monitors. There's also happy hours pre-show!

    Happy Hour until 8pm is the way to go if you're there early. $5 dollar Magic Hat drafts. Also, nicest staff around. Amazing space.

    The elevated areas on the side are perfect for a great view and more chilled vibe than the pit. Rest on the banister and enjoy.

    This is the WORST venue in New York! I absolutely hated it and I strongly NOT recommend it! Please if you want to attend a gig go to The Bowery Ballroom in stead! They are the same company anyways!

    This is definitely my favorite venue in the entire city. It was actually constructed to replicate Bowery Ballroom and made everything slightly better than BB.

    Awesome music venue. I like that you can go downstairs to the lounge to order a drink and give your ears a minute to rest.

    If the music blows the lounge is a good place to drown your sorrows. Lots of white hipsters getting street with their Hiphop stylings.

    If you forget to print out your ticket, just bring your ID to prove you bought the ticket. They will look it up. Just be polite about it.

    Music Hall of Williamsburg is an amazing place to see a concert. Get to the show by 8 and you'll be rewarded with happy hour.

    The balcony area is actually incredible! I'm upset it took me so long to wander up there. Less packed with a great view.

    One of my favorites. Large enough to hold a solid crowd, yet Intimate enough to feel really connected to the bad/artist

    Good venue with decent bar areas and selection of beer. Very good sound quality and views from most parts of the venue.

    Sometimes it can get a little crowded, but viewing from the side risers works pretty well and the downstairs bar is clutch.

    I loved this place until I didn't. I've got a bone to pick with the autocratic manager (Todd?) and his army of security dudes. I know you guys are just doing your jobs, but seriously...RELAX BROS.

    Use the front staircase and you'll enter the main room right by the stage. Perfect for those late entrances on crowded nights.

    Seemed like a much bigger place when it was North 6. Not to into the new look. Sound is great. Asian bartender downstairs rules.

    if the show is sold out, no worries: just talk to the dubious fellows working the door and they'll let you right in for face value.

    What a shithole. Nothing but attitude from every friggin rent-a-goon. Ruined what could have been a nice time at some other, ANY other place but that! Never setting foot in here again.

    Incredible place to see live music. Go early to get in on happy hour. Odds are your favorite band LOVES playing here.

    MHOW is a fantastic place to see music. Some of the best sound in NYC. Get to the early and catch happy hour.

    Get two Drinks during happy hour (at half price) and ask for a big cup to enjoy lotso booze and avoid binging.
  • Stuart L.
    One of the larger music venues in the neighborhood, you’re likely to catch medium to big name acts on any given night.

    Great space, good times. ...An inane amount of hipster-children, but that's like saying there a lot of Chinese people in China. Read more

    If you're looking to enjoy your music without being surrounded by wasted, angry, entitled teens, this is not your place.

    Pretty much a mirror image of Bowery Ballroom in Williamsburg. Great place to see local bands.

    The perfect sized venue, with a great bar downstairs to escape to or have a nightcap. Always fun!

    For all your music needs. A series of balconies at various levels around the stage offer a very good experience.

    The revamp is now almost a carbon copy of the Bowery Ballroom, but with a better downstairs bar. Check it out. Read more
