This place is great, one of my favorite smaller venues. Unlike the Bowery Ballroom, the site lines are all great, and there are raised parts on the left and right side for those who don't want to get trampled by the crowd. Also they have a happy hour between doors opening and the first band coming on, cheap drinks!
Google has a lot of bad reviews for this, but honestly I think it isn't too bad. The staff are OK, it has a great bar and restrooms, and the stage is high enough so that there is great visibility wherever you are. Sound wasn't the best, but that could have been particular to the night, and it wasn't a dealbreaker.
