    Best NYC venue after Roseland got demolished! Great sound, site lines, and seating if needed. Go see your favorite metal bands. Danzig, Amon Amarth, King Diamond, Meshuggah, etc

    Large but feels intimate. Great views throughout - it's wide, w/elevated areas on sides and the back. The stage is the perfect height. Big clean bathrooms & good bartenders who don't ignore you.

    Last time I came here, it was the Best Buy Theater. It's a lovely venue, good standing room and seats in the back. Saw Mutemath and Ariana Grande here, both great shows.

    Despite being in Times Square, it's possible to have a blast at this mid-sized music venue.

    Go the beer route. They serve in cans, so the spill factor is *slightly* decreased.

    Great venue with separate standing areas, depending on your rowdiness, that also provide an intimate feel with the bands.

    The layout of this theater is strange with the standing in the middle but the sound is pretty good. If you manage to get into the upstairs VIP sections don't hesitate just go.

    Security guys are pretty rude. The guy ripped my tickets right out of my hand as I was taking them out of the envelope -- and I was moving pretty fast so there was really no need for that.

    If you put an upscale movie theatre and a concert venue together you'd have this place. Overall good venue. Pit in the front, seating in the back.

    Place was fine but it was chaos in the line at Times Square, bouncers didn't seem to know what was going on.

    Has a terrible policy for artists to meet fans. They won't allow bands to be at their merch tables. A singer wasnt even allowed in the lobby let alone allowed to take pics or sign.

    Perpetual crowdsurfing! If you crowdsurf up to the stage, the guards are specifically trained to give you a soft cushy landing and cycle you out to the back to start the whole thing over again.

    Amid Times Square is this venue--one of the few in NYC to require an escalator for entry. Drink prices are high, as you'd expect from the 'hood, but the excellent sound more than makes up for it.

    Definitely going back to see five finger death punch, all that remains, hatebreed, and rains if they ever end up in new york again. Mosh pit was epic. Best concert thus far.

    Great venue in Times Square. Security is real tough at entrance and while in side. Smoking area provided. Many bars, snack, coat check. Even at sold out show, plenty of room. Highly recommend.

    I saw Zahi Hawass here, and it was a seated engagement, but judging by the wood floors, and i questioned how this place could host concerts, and metal shows at that. The bar is placed very nicely too
