First of all let me say that most of these venues are generally great on talent and poor on the wine and dine section. My expectations for the food and drinks are never very high when visiting a place like this. In my experience most...More

Went to see a reggae show here. Small place with friendly staff. Not a bad 'seat' in the house (mostly standing room only). Would definitely revisit. Get up close and personal with your favorite artist. Worth checking out. Full bar and food available for purchase.

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

I think it depends on the popularity of the act. For a super popular show I would get there when doors open. Note however, there are very few non VIP seats. Most of the Highline is SRO.
