The railings fill up quickly on the second and third floors...if you aren't there to see the opener you might have to stand towards the back.
this is the anus of NYC.
Solid venue for some great acts. Decent bar areas typically overpriced.
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.
Jaÿ Z B Sides x Tidal
Check out mooncake food for a good, cheap and quick eat before shows.
Great venue. The three levels always gives you a good view of the band.
good venue for a larger crowd. sound is always great.
Amazing bands and concerts. Crowds less enjoyable.
The sight lines are really bad, so arrive early to get a view of the stage! Regardless, always a fun time and large crowd
This is where Splinter addressed the Foot clan recruits in TMNT the first
Not one of my favorite concert venues but they do book good shows and draw me in
Solid sound but gets so packed when show is sold out.
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
The sound in this damn venue is awful unless you're in the perfect places. Ugh.
Come early to stand on the coat check line....

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.
What a shitfest
Super sound system but after a while you cannot breath at Terminal 5. They need really good AC.
A secret is that a great snack here is beef jerky from the bar on the second 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
Huge venue with perfect sound. Bring a bite if an appetite for a pretzel, jerky or burger
Best view is second floor
get here early if you can. mobs of people attending a gig.
Cool enough spot to see a show. Get to the balconies for a good view and easy access to drinks
Interesting venue, sound system is not very good, decent amount of bars servicing, get there early if you want to be able to see the stage.
Hey ignore what the people say, every concert I've seen here has been incredible.
the roof deck bar may be less crowded and more quiet if you want to get a quick drink, chat with friends, or take a smoke break
if the weather is chilly, enjoy a hot spiced cider on the roof deck
coat check on the 2nd floor on the right behind the bar, $3 per item, cash only
if the line for the 2nd floor bathrooms is too long, try the roof deck bathrooms down the other hallway - they may be totally empty
the music from the show plays on the roof deck until 10pm Sun-Thu and 11pm Fri-Sat
If John Lennon came back from the dead to perform one night at Terminal 5 I would still say it's not worth it. Worst venue without exaggeration.
Best venue in the city
Some of the best artists come through this music venue. But it sucks if you're short.
Cool space with second and third floor lounge areas. Audio's not the best here.
SECRET: GO TO THE SECOND FLOOR. FIND A TABLE BY THE RAILING. SIT UNDERNEATH TABLE. ENJOY SHOW IN OWN PRIVATE BUBBLE WITH FEET DANGLING AND NO ONE SHOVING YOU TO GET TO THE FRONT. YOU'RE WELCOME.
Great bands, mediocre venue. Beware fratty guys.
Jake bugg unbelievable
Big, three levels but can be hard to get a good view
This spot is jumping!
Hell on Earth.
