    Large but feels intimate. Great views throughout - it's wide, w/elevated areas on sides and the back. The stage is the perfect height. Big clean bathrooms & good bartenders who don't ignore you.

    Last time I came here, it was the Best Buy Theater. It's a lovely venue, good standing room and seats in the back. Saw Mutemath and Ariana Grande here, both great shows.

    Best NYC venue after Roseland got demolished! Great sound, site lines, and seating if needed. Go see your favorite metal bands. Danzig, Amon Amarth, King Diamond, Meshuggah, etc

    Amid Times Square is this venue--one of the few in NYC to require an escalator for entry. Drink prices are high, as you'd expect from the 'hood, but the excellent sound more than makes up for it.

    Perpetual crowdsurfing! If you crowdsurf up to the stage, the guards are specifically trained to give you a soft cushy landing and cycle you out to the back to start the whole thing over again.

    The layout of this theater is strange with the standing in the middle but the sound is pretty good. If you manage to get into the upstairs VIP sections don't hesitate just go.

    If you put an upscale movie theatre and a concert venue together you'd have this place. Overall good venue. Pit in the front, seating in the back.

    Great venue with separate standing areas, depending on your rowdiness, that also provide an intimate feel with the bands.

    Great venue in Times Square. Security is real tough at entrance and while in side. Smoking area provided. Many bars, snack, coat check. Even at sold out show, plenty of room. Highly recommend.

    Can be a little tough to find, but look for the curved jumbotron by the MTV building. Great place for corporate events, with comfortable seating. Arrive early & hang out downstairs at the bar.

    I saw Zahi Hawass here, and it was a seated engagement, but judging by the wood floors, and i questioned how this place could host concerts, and metal shows at that. The bar is placed very nicely too

    A great spot for live music in NYC, and the first stop of 2012 CMT On Tour (10/10/2012), headlined by Jake Owen, with special guests Love and Theft and Florida Georgia Line. Let loose and sing along!

    this is one of the best live music venues in NYC. They have an awesome concert lineup and give the option to sit or stand at most of their concerts with an unobstructed view. Great sound, modern feel.

    Intimate venue the size of a high school gymnasium. There's no bad seat in the house!

    Despite being in Times Square, it's possible to have a blast at this mid-sized music venue.

    best venue i've been to in NYC. management is efficient, space is open, the stadium seating in the back of the venue is clutch.

    Saw Deftones/Dillinger Escape Plan here, pretty good venue. There is stadium type seating located in the back if you want to sit and rest for a few.

    Definitely going back to see five finger death punch, all that remains, hatebreed, and rains if they ever end up in new york again. Mosh pit was epic. Best concert thus far.

    Nice space. Pick a good show, go with friends who like the music, and dance in the pit area. I saw The Cat Empire recently and the crowd really made the show for me.

    Beers are a little pricey, but the lit is wide and the sound is fucking clean as my dick:

    Security guys are pretty rude. The guy ripped my tickets right out of my hand as I was taking them out of the envelope -- and I was moving pretty fast so there was really no need for that.

    Go the beer route. They serve in cans, so the spill factor is *slightly* decreased.

    Amazing staff, obviously easy to get to, it's just way too sterile and corporate. Great front of house sound.

    Don't buy cocktails or well style drinks at the bar...they're cheap on liquor, and not on price.

    Every time I come here it amazes me how poorly managed it is. Half of the staff on power trips. One of my least favorite show venues.
