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.

Went after dinner and saw the MIXEDTAPE Comedy show. We sat in the front row and saw many funny comedians. If you ever get a chance to see the Mixedtape don't miss it.

My husband and I went to see Trevor Noah (spectacular, brilliant and witty) and we weren't sure what to expect and this place blew our minds. Loved the set up of the stage and the chairs. We vouched for the VIP which I feel was more than worth it. Not the food is not incredible nor the drinks insanely strong... More

We went to see a live taping of AXS TV comedy, and it was a home run. The staff at Gotham is always friendly and gracious, and happy to have you as a customer. This is a GREAT place to see comedy.

From the smooth check-in at the front, to the excellent service throughout the night, I can't say enough good things. Whereas usually during a night of comedy, there might be one or two less-than-funny comics, the host and the comedians were all outstanding. We enjoyed the food (burger cooked to your pref - love this! plus all the other usual... More

This is a decent comedy club located in a nice area of NYC. They cram you in and then charge you premium prices for small cocktails. The "Comedy Cellar" is much better ( yes they cram you in there also, but the there is a great vibe about the place); the "Comedy Cellar" from now on.

We went for a little laugh and we came out with a huge laugh. The drinks were good and the food was Ok for a Comedy club. However, the comedians were extremely funny including the host who could have been one of the presented comedians also.

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.
