    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.

    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 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

    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 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.

    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.

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

    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

    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!

    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 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.

    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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Huge venue with perfect sound. Bring a bite if an appetite for a pretzel, jerky or burger

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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:)

    Great place to see a show, mostly standing room only in front of the stage. Seating around the bars. Nice venue

    Very big venue, sound is great at the barricade! Bathrooms have a sagely old gentleman hooking you up with cologne, paper towels, and soaps... Classy!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Very crowded.. Pillars make it hard to see.. Get there early to get good spot! Cool rooftop waiting area if you're really early haha

    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.

    the music from the show plays on the roof deck until 10pm Sun-Thu and 11pm Fri-Sat

    Sight lines are a little rough here, so make sure if you find a decent spot that you stay there and take turns with a friend to grab drinks, etc.

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

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

    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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    Saw one republic here, one of the best live shows I've ever seen and the acoustics were just fine. I was previously a touring musician and played in hundreds of venues across the us. Great venue

    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.

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