Peter of Peter, Paul and Mary. And for those who seek potty parity? Iron Horse has it. Fun venue for close up and personal music.

It is true that the tables are packed in tight, the chairs are not super comfy, but everyone had a seat for the sold out show we attended. The casual burger fare was good for what it was, I enjoyed a southwest grilled chicken sandwich....More

We always love the performers, but the place is so very crowded, you can't get up and move around without asking people to pull in their chairs. The "handicap" bathroom is behind the kitchen, is really and employees bathroom and is filthy....really filthy. The ones...More

This venue treats their visiting artists like second class citizens. Their facilities are also abysmal. I will never see a show here again.

I live locally and Northampton is a great city for nightlife. "The Horse" is a legend for local and national artists. They also have pretty darn good food!

Iron horse has a great selection of bands and the food is terrific.Only problem is the seating.It is a small venue and upstairs in the balcony,it's really cramped in between tables.I will still go again if the right band for me is playing.

We'd seen our favorite band at Infinity Hall Norfolk (CT) and Infinity Hall Hartford, which have comfortable auditorium seating and terrific acoustics. We'd heard Iron Horse had cafe seating and good acoustics. Food was decent, prices were reasonable, wait staff competent. But the wooden chairs...More

Good friendly service, good music, but the upstairs was insufferably hot with no air flow. I had to leave the building twice during the show just to get fresh air. Our whole group was hoping the show would end despite the good music.

No. People line up outside. Most of us are used to this, and I usually volunteer to get in line early, procure a good table, and then my partner and/or friends join me when they arrive. Not everyone in the party needs to... More
