One of my favorite venues in NYC. Excellent vantage points from various places. Plentiful, clean bathrooms with attendants. Upstairs bar very comfortable and great viewing/filming area.

Read the other terrible reviews. They are all right! If you don't get up front on the main floor or stand along the railings on the 2nd and 3rd level you CAN'T SEE A THING! Don't waste your money. It's the worst set up. Security...More

Have been to this venue at least 4 times for concerts. Always impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. Security does a great job in making the venue feel safe despite what at times can be over enthusiastic fans. Thank you to George...More

Great and numerous bar space, big enough to get great acts but not so big to lose intimacy. I've seen the Lumineers, Empire of the Sun and Thievery Corporation to name a few. If you can score space on the vip level definitely worth it...More

Overcrowded dump with typical tough guy security. Been to most of the significant music venues in the NY metro area and this was my least favorite of them all. Way too many tickets sold for this empty warehouse with sound softening padding on the walls....More

Shows vary on age limits,typically set by the band. The venue doesn't set age restrictions. You can check the Terminal 5 website before the show to see what age restrictions have been set,typically 18+. Good luck! Every kid... More
