The Bowery Ballroom, New York City

4.1
The Bowery Ballroom is a music venue in the Bowery section of Manhattan, New York City. The structure, at 6 Delancey Street, was built just before the Wall Street Crash in 1929. It stood vacant until the end of WWII, when it became a high-end retail store. The neighborhood subsequently went into decline again, and so did the caliber of businesses occupying the space. In 1998 it was converted into a music venue. It has a capacity of 575 people.Directly in front of the venue's entrance is one of the entrances to the Bowery station on the BMT Nassau Street Line of the New York City Subway.The club serves as the namesake of Joan Baez's Bowery Songs album, recorded live at a concert at the Bowery Ballroom on November 6, 2004. It also appears in the 2000 film Coyote Ugly as well as the 2008 film Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist.

  • Nice place. Security out front is sketchy. Once I got in the staff were fine, place was clean, good drinks, good music. Its pretty dark in there but it's a cool atmosphere. Good music and very interesting people!
  • Great venue. Coming from Boston it was a nice change. Only down fall to this place is that you need to go underground only to walk back up to ground level. The ambiance is great and staff were super friendly.
