On April 23, I went to Gotham Comedy Club in Manhattan, NYC. Went to see the very funny comedian Cristela Alonzo. The place was great, my girlfriend and I did not have to wait long to get our seats. Had a strong Vodka drink and Shelly one of those girlie drinks as we waited for the show and my yummy... More

Nice location, easily accessed by subway(dont remember which line but its close to the subway station). Great warm-up, and funny comedians, off course some more than others, the all-over-impression is that this was a fun night! Our tickets demanded that we had to buy two units of (alcoholic?)bewerage and so we did, it was all good. We also bought some... More

Went with a group of 30 people for mine and my boyfriends birthday. Called the week of to reserve a large table and prepay for tix. Staff was super accommodating and great to work with. Had a table right up front that fit all of our friends and everyone loved it!! Will definitely be going back soon! Highly recommend!

We arrived in the middle of a show and instead of offering us to come back in 45 min or so to catch the next one, they told us we could just go in late. What they didn't tell us was we still had to pay the cover and the 2 drink minimum. When you are charging $15 for a... More

My husband and I had a great night here, the acts were fantastic and we were hugely entertained. The staff couldn't do enough for us and were quick and attentive, there was a great atmosphere. As a tip book in advance, this is a very popular venue. You can have a meal there but it is mainly burger and chips... More

I went there while in NYC on business. It is very small and cramped like many comedy clubs but that kind of adds to the atmosphere. A fun place and I would go back again.

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
