"Cool ass place to see a show." Irving Plaza Tip by Bela_LUng

Irving Plaza, New York City: 2 reviews and 0 photos

Irving Plaza is cool as *** to see a show. A rather smallish place makes for an intimate show. They have some ok beers at the bar too. I saw Fischerspooner and Front 242 there. Both shows rocked (Front 242 was much more excellent of course) and the sound for the spooner show was off but for Front 242 the sound system held up to the bass attack.

The floor sometimes felt like it was going to give out, so stand where you think the toilet is and at least you'll get to the toilet ahead of everyone else at the end of the show.

Located right near South Union Square so you can conveniently find some bars and *** around there after or before the show to do crazy stuff.

Dress Code: Live Shrimp and electric eel pants only. Strict Seafood dress code in effect.

Address: 17 Irving Place
Directions: between 15th and 16th Streets, one block west of Third Avenue in Manhattan.
