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 them play there. --Accessible, attentive bars. --Great sight lines. --Draws educated live music consumers.

This is probably my favorite music venue. It's a comfortable and cozy setting and the staff are pretty laid back and easy going. They also always have a good variety of local bands as well as popular headliners. There's just something about the feeling of this place that I love, it keeps drawing me back for more.

We weren't sure what to expect - knew it was general admission, but didn't know if there'd be seating or not (maybe naive?!!) but LOVED the intimate, rough-around-the-edges vibe of this live music/performance venue. You enter into a main 'gathering' area/foyer with a bar, had a cozy atmosphere, dimly lit, great place to grab a few drinks before the concert.... 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, very close to the stage. The lounge area downstairs was great if you needed a... 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 questions." So that's fun. Good job guys.

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 or during if you're not digging the show upstairs.

The Bowery ballrooms is a great small venue with good acoustics. Bar staff were all great but the bouncers on the front doors could cheer up a little (can't have it all). The draft beer I bought was 8USD and good quality. The bar downstairs was great for a few pre-gig drinks. Well worth a visit when in town!

Thank Neil B
