I wouldn’t see another show there. I suspect they over sold the show. It was body against body. It’s standing room only, I’m 5ft tall and couldn’t see over people’s heads. Security wouldn’t let me upstairs or even on the riser because I didn’t have...More

This is a small music venue, which is horribly oversold during popular events, and is uncomfortable, to say the least. First of all, if you do not have VIP tickets, then you are stuck standing in a crowded open space, without even an extra inch...More

I've been here a few times, and it's a pretty great venue. It's pretty dark, so it's great for concerts, and the sound system is decent. There was a Harry Potter event at Irving plaza that I went to, but it was way over crowded....More

This is a great venue, although they have to shut the music down by 10pm. Back n the day we didn't go out until midnight.

Small venue (approx 1000 I think) Queuing was organised and upgrades offered to the queue. Staff helpful and location good. Stage quite small and barrier not huge but a nice intimate venue. Would definitely go again.

We attended the Menzingers show on March 30th. Great venue! I would highly recommend to upgrade to VIP if available. Only downfall is prices of mixed drinks are very pricey. Also there isn't a bathroom in the VIP/balcony. But great place.

I've been at a couple of concerts here over the past few years. It's a mosh pit with the bar at the back. A total fire hazard and not for anyone who's claustrophobic. G-d forbid there's a fire. this is the type of venue where...More

Not huge venue. There are 2 floors, 3 bars set up. Upstairs has handicap and a lot of VIP sections. Downstairs is G.A pretty much good view from anywhere. It got very hot in there last week felt like passing out.

At 57 I have zero desire of dealing with the masses, but that is me and you'd have to decide what works best for you. Have a great time!
