    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...

    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

    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.

    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!

    this has many floors! and you can definitely get lost here! there is all kinds of music and kinds of crowds. If want to explore different types of music then this is the place to get a glimpse!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

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

    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.

    Not a bad venue. Unlike some places, I could hear the mic pretty well. A tallboy of Tecate was $8 here; at Rough Trade it's $5. But this is a bigger place, more space. I'd come back.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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.

    Wait for the beer man to come thru. $8 at the bar or $5 from the vendor. Both 12oz. Vendor is cash only.
