    Younger crowd since it's a 19+ venue. Best EDM artists here. Several floors with more open space. Security is tight. Sign up on their guest list the week prior to the event. Always a good time here.

    Cover charges can run as high as $30, but with that you get access to every room in the club. If you’re worried about it, you can get ten bucks off by buying tickets in advance. Read more

    The two-story venue has a wrap-around balcony and huge floor space that provides great views from every angle. Dance parties dominate the basement, while bigger names take over the main stage.

    Extremely hospitable, kind staff in VIP section (no, VIP areas don't always have great service!). Separate bar and VIP-only bathrooms certainly come in handy!

    Beautiful venue with 3 floors of crazy music and a different scene on each floor. They even roll out the red carpet for guests and you can’t walk more than 10 ft. without seeing a bar! Read more

    From Al Capone to Amanda Palmer! Since 1886 it's hosted great live music, legendary parties and superb Broadway cast recordings. Catch a killer show here and see if the walls really do talk...

    If you're going to dance, the music is good- but you WILL get unexpectedly grinded on, ladies. Also try to get in with a promoter because its not even close to being worth the 30 dollar cover.

    I came here a few times and it's a place where mostly 17-21 year olds hang out. Concert nights are great, it might seem really small but it's actually more fun than it looks.

    Madonna has performed here, a cool place to get lost and enjoy trance, club, salsa and a variety of other music throughout this huge club.. we still believe one of the largest in nyc

    Don't worry... You're not THAT drunk. The floor actually bounces! Also, the drinks are pretty pricey so it's worth grabbing a few beforehand. It gets pretty crowded on the floor so pack light!

    One of my favorite venues in the whole city, as well as the studio downstairs. Excellent sound, great vibes and atmosphere. One of the best places to see great concerts.

    Watch out for an Italian guy named Phil. Early 20s, diamond stud in left ear, cracked iPhone (though prob not anymore), from LI. He's at Webster Hall every Saturday and likes to steal girls' phones!

    For a popular band or artist get here a few hours early if you really want to be up front by the main stage. Rabid music fans don't play :). Also, gets drinks elsewhere - PBR shouldn't be $9!!

    At one point in time you could have seen labor rallies, weddings, and lectures at Webster Hall. It's now established on New York's live music circuit, and a staple for CMJ Music Marathon attendees.

    Webster Hall gets great acts, which is unfortunate since the crowd is full of high schoolers, the lines and security are a pain in the ass, and the acoustics aren't great.

    been here enough to say this is the WORST venue in NYC (i go to a lot of shows) staff, patrons, bar(s), sound, smell: AWFUL. takes a special band for me to think about it. why do bands even play here?

    A bit disappointed celebrating Halloween here. Hiphop floor was probably best to dance in, but was ridiculously packed and hot. Other floors included house and trance, which had more space.

    Built in 1886, you could hear anarchist Emma Goldman speak one night & on another night attend a society function for New York’s elite. Rumors persist that it was once owned by Al Capone.

    On Fri 7/6/12 they were shut down because someone got stabbed! My friend made it thru the security check with a huge pocket knife in his pocket! They're too busy taking girls bras off the find drugs..

    Now known as Webster Hall, "The Ritz" was one of the first clubs to incorporate video screens into the club experience in the '80s. Sonic Youth, Soundgarden, and GnR all played early gigs here.

    Make sure to check your account to see if they ACTUALLY charged you the amount you signed on your receipt. Bartenders gave themselves a tip on my dime. That's a great business practice there.... WTF

    Convenient and massive (and great bc they house multiple acts on the same night due to the different floors/rooms. Great acts come through! And try to see someone on the rise in the Studio

    One of my favorite NYC rock clubs. Relatively cheap beer, laid back and friendly staff, and intimate atmosphere. What more could you ask for?

    The staff here is absolutely horrible. The last time I was here a group of fans were yelled at for buying merch from the band & for waiting outside to meet them. Worst venue ever!

    Wolfgang Gartner will be in NYC this weekend and he comes ready to party. The Grammy-nominated producer will only be here one night at Webster Hall so make sure to catch it. Sat, 3/12, $25. Read more

    A well-booked venue. Waiting out front can, on occasion, be like a carnival haunted house. Instead of ghouls, it's 21 year old girls shrieking at each other about being cool and whose dad is richer.

    Went to a Bowery Presents show and was very pleased to see that the bands started on time! So I know in the future I can comfortably see shows there and be home at a reasonable hour.

    HORRIBLE nightclub! $16 watered-down drinks?! You've gotta be kidding me! Plus $35 entrance fee and the rudest employees you will ever meet. Worst NYC club hands down!! Don't bother!

    Home of Indie Acts and Legends alike, Webster hall often doubles as a real-life night club featuring cover-charged theme parties and big-name DJ sets.

    It's okay for a regular concert. For the club stuff, the crowds are really terrible. I get sad when someone I like plays here. Hit up the Studio for a better atmosphere.

    If you are in VIP, you will need to get a place by the rail early otherwise you will be sitting near the stinking bathroom for the entire show.

    Get sweaty and rock the fuck out to some massive beats. Ladies: do yourself a favor and wear closed-toed shoes & leave the heels at home. You will get stepped on. Everyone does.

    I'm just a fan in general of places with gender-neutral restrooms—even if it is a byproduct of New York's insane space constraints.

    God, I hate this place. Molested at the door, 8$ bud lights, rude staff, druggies, guidos with no shirts starting half naked man dance circles. if you're looking for a shit show you've found it.

    It all depends on who you see/who's playing. Some nights are classy. Some nights are ratchet. Water is $5 but beer is cheap

    You're going to get better service getting an anal probe from the TSA. Customer service here is kind of like getting punched in the face. Also have fun paying $6 for a glass of water.

    Cavity search at the door and the main stage floor feels like its to to cave in yet it's where I've had some of my favorite nights and seen the most amazing sets. Also Alex English rules!

    Waited EIGHT songs for the bartender to give me his attention. EIGHT. Beware the long-haired, male bartender facing the stage. He's only interested in serving women.

    One of the better places to see a medium-sized show in NYC. Studio downstairs is even better.

    Each stage here is great. New sound system is fantastic, but definitely bring ear plugs - especially for downstairs!

    On Friday nights, downstairs at TRASH, the short, blonde, suburban-looking bartender charges a lot less for beer than the tall, dreamy brunette.

    The coat check costs $6 per piece. So, if you want to avoid dropping all your cash, just come in bike shorts and nipple tassles.

    Go to Webster Hall to see a band. If you have a paper ticket, the line is usually further down the block. Don't get stuck in the will-call line.

    Cool place, but don't waste your money if Vdj Chris Landry is mixing. Your better off jamming to the radio at night. Fake ass Dj, pre-recorded mixes all night= lame.
