Bowery Ballroom

The Bowery Ballroom is a New York City live-music venue located at 6 Delancey Street in the neighborhood of Bowery in Manhattan. The Bowery Ballroom holds something of a cult status among musicians as well as audiences.[1] Rolling Stone magazine has awarded it #1 Best Club in America.[2] "It's both intimate and grand, with consistently great sound and sightlines, and touches of old-school class, like 84-year-old bronze rails."[2] It has a capacity of 575 people.[3][4][5] A detailed scholarly account of the venue and its place in the wider music and cultural history of New York City was published in 2020.[6]
