Bowery Ballroom

Bowery Ballroom

Considered one of the best live music clubs in New York, the Bowery Ballroom is a Lower East Side institution. Dark and swanky, complete with a cool bar for post-show mingling, the setup is enough to keep you entertained if the band isn't doing for you. Built to corral about 600 people or so, the Bowery Ballroom is big enough to feel like a concert hall, but small enough to be comfortable; the acoustics are great. The crowds are pretty predictable based on the bands, which range from big-name rock to hipster indie acts.
