    Good for seeing your favorite act. Smallish venue that gives it intimate feel.

    The sound here isn't that great. Three stories, but still difficult to find a spot to actually see anything.

    This place gets crowded! Go upstairs and sit against the railing to get the best view in the house!

    If you're here, it's probably because T5 booked a band you really love. So suck it up, arrive early, get a spot on the floor, and enjoy the show, despite the venue smelling like a locker room.

    The view is great from any level. Also, having bars on every level is very convenient.

    The further away from the door you are the better the vibe. Walk past the crowd and you'll have way more space.

    Loved it. The concert was amazing, space was nice. Bartender not super friendly, but not terrible speed-wise. I'd go back. #duh #whosplaying

    Best place to catch a band before they hit the garden or Barclays but overall the venue is just okay. It gets crowded, it's in the middle of nowhere and the sight lines are not great

    Great concert venue. Coat check is a little out of the way though; its up on the 2nd floor.

    Such a shame that good artists will agree to play shows here, thus allowing it to remain open. Great place to act like a jerk while touching twelve other people at once. Probably popular with bankers.

    Unless your under 22 the best place to enjoy shows is on the 3rd fl. lounge area near the bar. Your here to enjoy live music. You don't need your eyes for that, people hovering around the rails annoy

    It's almost always super hot in here. So, you know, wear layers, and then seductively remove them throughout the concert.
