Description

Village Voice's Description

The WrestleMania of Bowery Presents venues, Terminal 5 is where you go to revel in sweaty, overgrown, not-so-indie acts such as LCD Soundsystem, Ratatat, My Morning Jacket, and so on. The bands that play here are capable of filling up the Bowery Ballroom six times over, and have already cracked-or soon will-the Billboard Hot 100. Yes, Terminal 5 is mammoth. Fortunately, the building's no-seating cube design divvies up the 3,000-person capacity into three levels, the upper two wrapping around the crammed ground floor. Thus, sold-out shows still maintain some kind of band-in-your-face factor, the defining quality of the Bowery Presents experience.

Tips from foursquare

    This tri-level venue brings in must-see acts, from Lady Gaga toThe Gossip. Tip: Stake out a spot at the back of the main floor's bar; you'll get perfect views of the stage and easy-access to beer.

    Huge venue, huge shows. Bars on each floor, beware the makeshift bar on the first floor and go directly to the REAL bar unless you're just ordering a beer. Also beware of craigslist fake tickets!

  • RCRD LBL on 02/28/11

    Originally an old factory, this three story venue hosts some of the biggest indie bands in town. For the best seats in the house, get here early and snag a table on one of the mezz levels--the third f

  • Damien B. on 04/22/10

    Rooftop has hamburgers & a bar when open. Take advantage before the show. Also, bathrooms at the back with no bathroom attendant... if they make you feel awkward.
