Foursquare Tips

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • WORST venue in the City. Terrible lines to get in/bad crowd control, terrible layout and sightlines, crazy coat check lines, soo smoky, so awful.

  • Don't come here if you actually want to see the band or hear them on good speakers.
  • Maybe it's a rare occurrance, but the accoustics really weren't terrible when The New Pornographers played here.
  • 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
  • When I am at terminal5 I go to the American retro bar and grill. They give me $1 off drafts and cocktails before and aftervthe show. Just show your ticket. Coolness!
  • Best place to stand is along the wall facing the stage in front of the bottom floor back bar. Get there early to snag a spot on thr elevated part.
