This legendary venue does not disappoint. Ive seen a number of shows here, and have always had a great experience. The sound is clear everywhere in the room, and the sight-lines are great. Not a bad spot in the house. If you wanna get away...More

Great acoustics in this venue. Nice that there is a bar on the balcony as well as in the main area. The bar downstairs is decent too. Be prepared to stand for the entire show as there is very limited seating.

What an awesome venue. The size is perfect as are acoustics. Downstairs bar also great. By far one of my favorite venues.

This venue has that one extra magic touch to it- I think bands like to play there, and it shows in their sets. If there is a band you really love and a playdate comes to the Bowery Ballroom- do not hesitate to come see...More

This place was right up our alley! General admission meant no seats, but this place is small (read: cozy) enough that there was not a bad view in the house. We saw the Strumbellas concert here. We were able to stand off to the side,...More

We came from out of state to see concert and wanted to ask the door guy some questions. He had a huge chip on his shoulder and actually threatened to fight myself and my husband. He literally would not answer us because we "asked stupid...More

The BB is one of the most esteemed clubs/bars/rock bars in the country, as evidenced by the impeccable talent frequenting its stage on a nightly basis. Go rock out :)

This is my favorite live music venue in NYC. So many have closed up shop over the years but the Bowery still chugs along. The sound is really good in this room. Sightline's are good. There's a downstairs bar, bathrooms to chill in before show...More
