Located in New York City’s historic Gramercy neighborhood, Gramercy Theatre opened in 1937. Gramercy spent just over 60 years as a movie theatre and art-house until 1998, when it was renovated into a 499-seat playhouse to present Off Broadway theatrical productions, the largest in the city at the time. In 2004, the theater was shut down.It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to The Gramercy Theatre and many more New York City attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's New York City vacation planner.
In 2006, Live Nation bought the space with the intention of turning it into an intimate concert venue. The first performance under Live Nation was Stellastarr on March 7, 2007. Since then, Gramercy Theatre has hosted such artists as Steve Winwood, Counting Crows, Huey Lewis & The News, The Jonas Brothers, Macy Gray, Rufus Wainwright, Brand New, The Get Up Kids, Spoon, and Jay-Z. The theater offers an ultimate rarity among the city’s mid-sized music venues: a mix of actual seating in back with general admission standing room in front, and a sound system that caters well to both.
The Gramercy Theatre Reviews
We came here to see Jinjer. The venue itself is great - not too big or too small. The drinks however are super expensive and there isn't a wide selection but htere are plenty of eating and drinking.... more »
The Gramercy Theatre is 23rd Street's go-to place for a show. The venue holds under 500 attendees so be sure to buy your tickets as far in advance as you can! more »
Large but cozy venue. Great sound and lighting. Gives an intimate feeling while watching your favorite bands. There were in excess of 1500 people and I felt safe and enjoyed the evening. Fully stocked bar. Great staff. Zero issues. I highly recommend this venue.
Great location in east village. Nice size for up and coming bands. Great stage and sound system. Bar is convenient and well run. Nice basement lounge. Bathrooms are clean and accessible through short staircases.
