Love Irving Plaza. It is one concert hall that is consistently great. The band performing are always interesting; the place is big enough for a "concert feel" yet with a dash of intimacy; and the staff is attentive.

Everytime I have to go to a show at Irving Plaza it is one to look forward to. I love this venue with all my heart. Not only is it accessible via public transportation (very easy to get to, and find) but bands have never sounded better than they do in this venue.

I was upset from the time I walked in this place. The people at the door made me feel very unwelcomed and seemed very happy that they did so. After that I just couldn't have a good time at all. The show was ok and I guess the food was ok but once you feel like your being watched you just don't want to be there anymore. If you go I hope your experience is better than mine. The place itself is really nice to bad they aren't.

Irving Plaza is kind of like seeing a show in your highschool gym. The bathrooms are really cool. I mean if you have a choice I would recommend seeing a show anywhere else. But because of its great location off of Union Square it is really convenient to get to (by subway you can take the N,R, Q, 4, 5, 6, or L). Also, its a good idea to buy tickets at the box office instead of online.

The Irving Plaza is one of those places that give New York its fame as the coolest city in the world. Because of its stature, history and great sound, it gets some great acts who often also play arenas. In fact, when rock stars get sick of arenas, this is the place they come to get reconnected to their roots.

The place has two levels, which is very helpful to short people like myself. The floor usually gets filled up long before I can get through the door, so I always just head upstairs, where 99% of the time I get a perfect spot right by the railing. For a shorty, this is a much better spot than anywhere on the coveted floor.

The place is hooked up for great sound and even has a video camera directed at the stage at any time. There are tv screens by the bar where you can see the band even when you're waiting for your drink. I'd love to know whether the guys who work there actually videotape the shows - and I'd love to get into their tape collection!

PROS: Great sound, two levels, tvs at the bar
CONS:

After you wait on a long line to see the bands, you have a coat check, nice bathrooms, interesting furniture to sit on, and a small venue concert hall in which to see your favorite bands perform up close. They have the merch stands on the side where band members usually talk, hang out, and sign autographs! so much fun...
