For a GA venue, you can't do much better than Terminal 5

This is the worst place I've ever seen a band perform in my 48 years of living if you don't want to be in the mosh pits on the floor. Number one - it is run down. I took my son to see Bring Me The Horizon last night, 03/20/17 and it was our worst time. We could not see... More

My wife and I bought tickets to Bring Me The Horizon, my stepson's favorite band, for their March 20th show at Terminal 5. I have not been to a general admission since my early 30's. I hate the crowds, the lines at the bars, poor lines of vision to the stage and that you do not have a seat. Terminal... 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 to get a break from the crowd on the floor. If a band you like... More

I took my daughter to a General Admission seating concert. We've been to other standing room only concerts before and they were not this crowded. The Venue had 2 levels. Standing room only on the bottom which was so over crowded and some people had B/O. The second level had seats. We froze waiting for over 2 hours outside. 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. Security is way too overzealous, especially the short, round, bald, biker beard wearing dude who...

The space was decent. Ample space in the upper rows for a large amount of people to have adequate views of the stage. Restroom attendants were quick in getting people in and out. Good place to see shows!

Went to The Kills concert (GREAT performance!) and had seen mixed reviews for Terminal 5, so went with skeptical attitudes. We arrived 45 minutes before the show and not surprisingly for a stand up venue, the prime spots were taken. But, we did get a great spot on the 2nd floor, upper section - good stage view and big monitor... More

I hesitated getting tickets for a concert at Terminal 5 after reading all the bad reviews about the place. I saw Lush and really enjoyed my experience there. The sound was good. There's many spots to watch the shows. If you're a crowd person, you stay on the first floor. And if you're a balcony person, there's 2! And if... More

Came here for a Lush concert, which was actually my whole reason for this trip to New York. The concert was awesome, the venue itself was ok. That being said, they really need a better beer selection.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
