    Huge venue, huge shows. Bars on each floor, beware the makeshift bar on the first floor and go directly to the REAL bar unless you're just ordering a beer. Also beware of craigslist fake tickets!

    Saw Tove Lo here and I was honestly impressed with how nice the venue was in general. There are three levels that overlook the main stage so you can honestly get a great view of the artist everywhere.

    People might complain, but T5 has held some amazing concerts in this 3 floored space. Good views no matter what level you're on. Fun fact: nicest bathrooms I've ever seen in a venue.

    If your idea of a good show is to stand on a 3rd floor balcony and watch it on some flat panel TVs next to 1,100 mental toddlers from Hoboken, you've come to the right place.
  • Rafael D.
    Great staff and well spaced for different kinds of fans of the music playing. You have a large open floor and two more levels of balconies for people to enjoy the shows. Cheap tickets too

    Great venue. Speakers can really pump the bass and the crowd is energetic. The balconies are great if you don't want to see the act. Get into the crown to really feel it. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    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

    Originally an old factory, this three story venue hosts some of the biggest indie bands in town. For the best seats in the house, get here early and snag a table on one of the mezz levels--the third f

    Second floor has a nice bar and an ATM; third floor has pretty clean bathrooms with trippy lighting. Get there EARLY, like you're waiting for a flight.
  • The Corcoran Group
    The Corcoran GroupDecember 18, 2011
    This is one of the largest venues for live music in NYC, so it can get quite crowded – think lines galore. The acoustics are ok, but they do get great headliners.
  • Fazeela M.
    Fazeela MohammedDecember 4, 2014
    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
  • Ryan T.
    Ryan ThomasDecember 27, 2015
    The venue hosts big time acts but suffers from some bad sights lines if you aren't on the floor or hanging off the side of one of the levels. The sound is good on some nights. The bathrooms are great.
  • Shruti R.
    Shruti RamaswamySeptember 8, 2014
    Great concert venue! Avoid standing all the way in the back. The amount of people going back and forth, drove me crazy. Acoustics aren't that great but every band plays there!
  • Alcione
    AlcioneJuly 10, 2012
    Great concert venue. The three levels are great, your view is great from anywhere. In summer though, beware the heat gets deadly, despite a blasting AC. Prepare to sweat.

    Soo far from everything - but attracts some good names. Shows will typically sell out as the date approaches so buy tickets in advance.

    Love shows at terminal 5! Summer shows are the best! They have nice sitting area outside where u can sit, chill and drink. Very spacious!Great venue!
  • NYC P.
    NYC PunkNovember 14, 2011
    This is definitely not one of my fav venues. This is the place for touring acts who pass through. It's a multi leveled space and it usually gets pretty packed when it's a good show.
  • Brandon F.
    Brandon F.May 7, 2013
    Currently here seeing Flying Lotus. Best place to be is on the main floor on the raised bar from the back so you have easy access to brews and you don't get your ears blown out like you're used to.

    Not the best music venue in NYC (by far!) but still an enjoyable place to catch a show, especially if you've got a prime front row spot on the balcony level!
  • Jacob D.

    Cool enough spot to see a show. Get to the balconies for a good view and easy access to drinks

    Right in Hells Kitchen, be sure to check out their huge stage where every artist plays at one point in his/her career. Security can be tough, but the sound inside the venue is worth it!

    This tri-level venue brings in must-see acts, from Lady Gaga toThe Gossip. Tip: Stake out a spot at the back of the main floor's bar; you'll get perfect views of the stage and easy-access to beer.

    Great general admission concert venue. I'm not use to a place like this, more familiar with general admission lawn seats but this setup was awesome.
  • Dan S.

    Big venue with multiple floors overlooking the stage, but get there early if you want to camp out along the railing for a good view. Exit doors to left of stage don't get opened after show oddly.

    I love this place! There is lots of space, many bars, and a lot of air above the dance floor. Coat check is a little long though.
  • Gabriel H.
    Gabriel HayesSeptember 16, 2015
    One of the best music venues in NYC. It gets big time acts but also is General Admission, so you can get right in the middle of the pit or right in front of the stage.

    So, my GF had a thai chicken wrap and a cookie left over from dinner. Security wouldn't let her in with either nor let her give them to a homeless person. Security kept the cookie, tossed the wrap:)

    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.

    When I am at terminal5 I go to the American retro bar and grill. They give me $1 off drafts and cocktails before and aftervthe show. Just show your ticket. Coolness!

    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.

    Least favorite venue in NY. If you're more than 30 feet from the stage, you might as well listen from outside because you can't see anything. I only come here to see must see bands, like Dr. Dog.
  • Cole K.

    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.

    Donald RNovember 2, 2010
    Saw Florence + the Machine on 11/1/2110. AMAZING! Get there at least an hour before the doors open if you want to be close to the stage. Also--Cleanest public bathroom I've ever been in.

    Great sound system, but the band has to be really loud and extremely captivating of the entire audience to offset the soul-sucking qualities this venue has.

    One of my least favorite venue's in NYC. They have the unfriendliest security that you will find anywhere. The sound can be hit or miss. Only go if you really REALLY love the band.
  • Nate F.

    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
  • Joey L.
    Joey LaCroixAugust 2, 2012
    Since it's illegal to charge for ice water, they keep a cooler with cups on the back side of second floor. Hidden clean bathrooms too!
  • Nate F.

    if the weather is chilly, enjoy a hot spiced cider on the roof deck

    If you watch on the floor, especially in the front few rows, be prepared to encounter assholes and pushers. The balcony is a nice chill spot.

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

  • Ryan A.
    Ryan AmbsJanuary 10, 2015
    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
  • Joey P.
    Joey PedrasOctober 2, 2010
    Tip: If you get there early enough you will very likely have the chance to be front and center. Everyone show that I've seen there I've been in the front.
  • Drewski

    A venue of squandered potential. Too many tradeoffs: get close but be way to the side, arrive early but be stuck in your cramped spot, or go to the balcony and look over people's shoulders.
  • Celine G.
    Celine GJuly 27, 2010
    Saw NIN, The XX and Hot Chip here. Intimate venue but unless you get there early and grab a good spot close to the stage, you're stuck staring at screens all night long!

  • Red F.

    Best place to stand is along the wall facing the stage in front of the bottom floor back bar. Get there early to snag a spot on thr elevated part.

    Sometimes bands are competing with the volume of an audience that's just there to talk. Loud shows are better suited here. Also, the special hasn't loaded last couple times I've been here.

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