The worst sound. The crowd is usually about 50% douche.
The columns blocking lines of sight by the stage will become your worst enemy
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.
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.
Lots of bathrooms up on the rooftop
Want to get away from the teen crowed, head upstairs!
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.
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.
Amazing venue. Free water during concert from the refill station 😍 amazing sound so much space
Soo far from everything - but attracts some good names. Shows will typically sell out as the date approaches so buy tickets in advance.
great venue - went to a few shows there!
Great acts great venue
This is the most oddly strict venue, serious pat down in the way in and pretty aggressive event security
I like this venue. Good air circulation and a lot of bars so no crowding when you want a drink.
Great venue for concerts
Awesome venue for concerts and events.
This place makes me miss Roseland Ballroom. That is how bad it is!
Great place to see a show....
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.
Awesome venue. Great view from almost anywhere.
Very crowded, and they close off certain sections when the rest of the place is packed. Bars are awfully placed, and it's way too hot!
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
