Filthy venue , extortionate beer prices , horrible food . Not sure about the act as we left before it started in disgust, however looking at the majority of negative comments I don't think we missed much. Was told to find the street ticket seller as we would get a refund , we found him but no way was he... More

At Times Square, a slimy looking guy in his 30s sold us tickets claiming Tina Fey will perform here. We fell for it and explained the situation to the comedy club owners. They were great performers, too: They acted so surprised and let us not buy min 2 drinks because they're such "nice" managers. We watched the worst comedy show... More

Purchased 2 tickets to a 9pm Saturday show from a woman in Times Square. I am a terrible bargainer and didn't even try to barter and so paid the $30 per ticket. Then got back to our hotel and searched it on trip advisor to read all these horrible reviews about it being a scam and terrible comedy! We almost... More

Wife and I had just had a great dinner and saw a great show in School of Rock when we saw this girl selling tix at Time Square. Growing up in New Jersey I should have known better than not to go to her but we were feeling lucky. Long story short everything she told us was a lie. From... More

We had a fun night but were surprised that there's a 2 drink minimum pp and u r charged regardless. This information was not evident online when we bought our tickets but rather were told at the door when we arrived. People should be given the chance to make an informed decision so this minimum requirement should be on their... More

We made the mistake of buying tickets on the street from one of those lying ticket salesman. Thought we were buying tickets to see Amy Shumer and once we arrived we found an entrance full of people who were scammed. The place says they are not part of it but honor the tickets - also part of the scam. Instead... More

I have no problem as the owner of the venue with reviews and we can learn a lot about what is right and what is wrong with our business..But let me understand, You purchased tickets from someone who said Amy Schumer was at venue and you expected 2 free drinks included ? ... Did you ever think to contact the... More

Got lied to by a seller on the street about there being a 12:30 show on a Tuesday night when the ticket clearly says there's not. He even told us after 12 we would get drinks we took it with a grain of salt because we wanted to see a show. Walking so far on a dark street away from... More

Bought two tickets after being told that Amy Schumer would be doing stand up at the club. Price was $20 for a $30 ticket and promised 1 free drink. This club has a two drink minimum. After four drinks, gratuity added to my check it was over $50 for drinks and NO Amy Schumer.

Hi Chris, Very sorry for your experience ..... On August 1 the New York City implemented a licensed ticket seller law .... That means any people selling tickets for us must be licensed and held accountable for any illicit action ..... On our website we clearly state to always check websites for official lineups if not sure .... The two... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
