    Such an awesome place and all around fun place to go to go to all different venues (music) I saw Bryan Adams here and he was great and the sound and seating chat is great as well.

    This is such a great venue with great acoustics and has been wonderfully renovated. A good mix of beers and cocktails are served and all servers take CC as payment including the souvenir stand

    Shows at the Beacon tend to cater to the older set and the marriage of classic rock and old world Art Deco design make for an unforgettable show. Read more

    This is an absolutely gorgeous theatre. The lower balcony, front row is ideal for low budget tickets with an amazing view. There are no elevators but there are bathrooms upstairs.

    Great place to see shows in NYC, there is a bar on main floor as well as lower lvl near bathrooms. Steer clear of Orch rows ~ P-T on right

    The Beacon was home to the Tony Awards, and their line-up is a good mix of “your parents music that you actually like” and “your music that your parents actually like”, which is definitely good thing. Read more

    Acoustics are wonderful and since the remodel many of the issues with the place have stopped. It's a beautiful historic theatre and has a long history of talented performers.

    A historic theatre perfect for everything from a comedy show to musical acts. It's small and broken up into 3 levels so there's not really a bad seat in the house. Seeing a concert here is a must!

    Great place to see your favorite bands. This is a seating theatre so it can be annoying if you're seating next to a less than nice person.

    Great venue. Fire safety issue to funnel all people out one exit, keep rest closed, and security personnel force you thru the main hall while people are stopped to use restrooms and buy merchandise.

    Beautiful venue, one of my favorites in the city. I recommend the front two rows of the LOGE section for the best views & sounds.

    Outstanding sound. No bathrooms on the main level, so go down or up to find one.

    Awesome historic place to see a show. Not a bad seat in the house, though some are certainly better than others...

    If I'm even 30 percent interested in a show here, I'll go just because I love the room so much and know the artists will give it their best.

    Pre-game before you arrive. Drinks are exorbitantly priced! But the sound quality is worth the price of the ticket.

    Great venue! Watch the parking garage around the block - cost was around $64 and it took over an hour to request our car, pay, and get it delivered to us.

    One of the best places in the city to catch a live performance. Fantastic old-time, authentic New York venue to see a band, with what feels like the original, upholstered seating.

    If you are seated on front of far house left you may be distracted by people coming and going from backstage door.

    This is a beautiful venue for sure, but if you're sitting in the balcony, expect subpar sound as the reverb is intolerable.

    Make sure to take in the great interior architecture including the metallic lion stage right of the balconies. I love the seats in this venue, movie theater style!

    Sold out show? Intermission? You're a female that has to use the bathroom? Head towards the lower level to save time. They herd people in and out pretty efficiently.

    Went to see Seinfeld stand up. Ushers are so disrespectful & loud when seating latecomers. The first 20 mins if the show you couldn't hear anything over their walkie talkies/babbling

    One of the best venues to see live music. Also one of the more expensive ones. They don't allow cameras so don't bother bringing one.
