We found this place by mistake as our hotel was close by. We attended the Homo Comicus Lesbian comedy show. My 80 year old mom laughed so hard, it was worth it! They have great cocktails & appetizers. Check the website for the schedule & arrive early for better seating.

Very fun night out. Great comedians and the venue was laid out well and felt intimate. If you get there before show starts, you go down a flight of stairs to a lounge until they get emptied and cleaned up from previous show. A two drink minimum per person and drinks average priced for NYC. Would go again. Great comedians.

Tuesday night in Manhattan? Yes to laughing for over 2 hours straight! We just showed up 30 minutes before the show, but would have gotten a better deal with more research. You will NOT be disappointed. Very small, intimate venue with some star power.

One of the most fun nights I've had. The staff was great, as was the seating area. I enjoyed the drinks and the comedy itself was incredible. Definitely worth the experience.

We booked this show last minute on a Friday night. The fact that it wasn't sold out made us a little anxious but we wanted to see a comedy show while in NY. When we got there, the staff was very friendly and the place was very clean. To our pleasant surprise, not only was the headliner very funny but... More

I've been to this comedy club the last two times I've visited NYC and had a blast on both occasions. The first time we didn't know the comic, but really enjoyed ourselves anyway. This last time, we knew who the comic was and he was awesome! The staff has always been friendly and pretty fast for a comedy club. The... More

Definetly a laugh for rear off spot. Great comedy shows by well known comics. Limited menu, but the food isn't bad and not overly pricey. Two drink(expensive) minimum with a cover charge. The wait staff is high quality.

We've been to many, many Comedy clubs in NYC. The thing that makes me come back to the Gotham is the comfort of the seating. Really, not that I need to be in a La-z-boy but at least when your at a table you can move your seat around without clunking into the people next to you. First and foremost... More

We booked to see a stand up show that we were told would be a live recording. The compare for the evening turned out to be Pamela Anderson! The place was comfortable, our seat was good and the comedians did not disappoint.

Wow, We laughed so hard, almost peed. This is a great club, good food, amazing drinks and excellent comedy. I was surprised that even the MC was hysterical! waitresses were there when you needed them, but not obtrusive, the drinks were quite strong, lol, just the way I liked them. Get there early to avoid lines, this place seems to... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
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.
