Why locals love it

This ballroom-style theater has served as a union meeting house and a Polish Army veteran center, becoming a rock music venue in 1978. Established as well as up-and-coming bands play this mid-size space, and the terrific sound makes for an unforgettable show.

Why you should visit it

Everyone from Bob Dylan, The Ramones, and Eric Clapton to U2 and other big names in music have played this intimate venue. Irving Plaza is THE place to have a classic, hot & sweaty rock concert experience in New York City.

Special tip

Arrive early to get a good spot (preferably towards the middle), and if you plan to drink have a few beforehand since their booze is a bit overpriced.
