    Beer on tap didn't seem to be flowing that well, but music was good and bar tenders were pleasant!

    "Two floors—an upstairs bar and a downstairs venue. The speakers can be loud, so don't position yourself right next to them." - Roy LaManna, Music Entrepreneur Read more

    Cool place, fair price for the beer! Let's just hope it's not vanished for a fashion store as it happened with CBGB a few yards away

    Joao Veloso Jr · August 16, 2015
  • Gabriel H.

    Typically has a cover of $5 or $10 for live music or DJs

    Downstairs is great for live music. Very intimate and great acoustics.

    Gabriel Hayes · August 6, 2015
  • Lindsay T.

    Really cool venue! The downstairs area has a bar area elevated from the main space, so you can watch the show from two levels. The benches on the side are convenient!

    Extremely fun dance floor downstairs! There are two lines - one to get in and one to get on the dance floor - but the wait is worth it. Plus, there's no cover!

    Jacob Forster · June 7, 2015
  • Ariel A.

    The music and atmosphere is great.

    Ariel Ambar · June 7, 2015
  • Libby K.

    One of my all time favorite places - worth the wait to get into the basement for some killer throwbacks

    Libby Kober · May 18, 2015
  • Ira B.

    Wanna dance with your crew? Come here on a Friday or Saturday. But be prepared for lines to get into more lines if you get here a little after 11:45

    The downstairs stage area is pretty cool. Just don't order a beer from the taps down there, they taste awful.

    Zii Hammad · August 27, 2014

    Noteworthy DJs, non-stop dance parties and a long line on Saturday nights make Bowery Electric a go-to for debauchery on Bowery.

    Watch out for the random steps in the back if you're at a reserved table. Especially if you're in heels and intoxicated.

    Perfect party room in the back available by reservation; this is where we had one of my close friend's 21st birthday and it was a huge hit!

    If you like going to the bathroom occasionally, don't come here. It's difficult.

    Head down to the basement if you feel like dancing the night away to awesome Motown music! You'll definitely need some energy for this dance floor.

  • Zack P.

    Go downstairs. There's typically a list on Fri & Sat for groups. Ask around for the names of the reservations.
