Terminal 5 Information

Terminal 5 - Concert Venue in New York.

Terminal 5 is a rock concert venue located in Hell’s Kitchen and can accommodate 3,000 music-lovers. The venue boasts three levels with two wrap around balconies and two fully-stocked bars. Terminal 5 has hosted artists such as Frank Ocean and Bloc Party and is commonly considered a “step up” from all the other Bowery Presents venues including Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg. It’s recommended that you get there early if you want any chance of finding a spot near the front of the stage because the outside line can become pretty clustered. Tickets for all concerts at Terminal 5 can be purchased online or at the door.

This Place can Get WILD
Peter S. Oct 28, 2013
I've seen Bloc Party, Dead Mau5, and Knife Party at Terminal 5, so I've experienced the venue in several different ways. GA Tickets put you on the floor in the middle of a very crowded, sweaty, and jacked-up crowd. When I saw Knife Party at Hard Fest last march I found the crowd no more crazy than any other heavy bass music show. The venue is smaller than one might think, and navigating from the middle of the floor to the bathrooms or bar can be a bit of a headache, but not anything too out of control. The sound and lights are excellent, mega-bass during the dance shows, and I found the live-sound at Bloc Party to be excellent as well. All-In-all, when packed and raging, Terminal 5 is an incredibly frenetic, energetic, and exciting place to go see a concert.
An Awesome Experience!

I had a great time seeing Matt & Kim play here this past year. My only warning is that if you purchase a general admission ticket to a crowded show, it gets really crowded and sweaty rather quickly. I'm fairly certain this is the case for most concerts though. There are balconies if you pay extra, however, and the lighting provided by Terminal 5 is spectacular! You're guaranteed to have a great time here provided you aren't claustrophobic. I definitely plan on seeing other shows at this venue.
It all started here for me.

This place may not be the biggest venue out there but it was sufficient enough to experience what a NYC show really is. From watching bands like Fitz & The Tantrums to Bloc Party, this venue has given me many good and fun memories. It is a multi-story venue so if you're not the type that likes to feel like a sardine in a can, higher floors are available to those who like to just sit back and take in all of what Terminal 5 has to offer. The acoustics of the room are pretty good too. Honestly, I don't really have any complaints about this place. I recommend anyone who hasn't seen a rock show to come and experience what it's all about.

They feature the crazies shows, with a huge crowd: never had a disappoint night. The door can be a bit tricky though. Because of the huge crowd, the wait line can be long, and can take several hours to clear up. But overall is a great place.
Great Concert Venue
Risa C. Dec 11, 2012
I've been here for several shows (Morning Benders, Girl Talk, SBTRKT) over the past few years and had an excellent time at all of them. While the space used to be the notorious 18+ drug hole club, DNA that got shut down by the DEA, little of that prior existence is still present, but it is still a good music venue nonetheless. The floor level space by the stage is good for the type of show where you want to dance among throngs of other fans although obviously it can get a little hot and sweaty in there and hard to get back to your friends if you decide to leave for some reason. If you like to watch from afar there always seems to be room on the first floor by the back bar, or in one of the balconies upstairs. There are also plenty of bars on each level, so don't feel obligated to get your first drink as soon as you walk in if you have the patience to simply walk upstairs where there's usually less of a line.

From the first show I ever attended at Terminal 5 to the last party I found myself at there, I wondered what the Hell this place was trying to do. The decor is sort of new-wage industrial, like the kind of club you imagined everyone went to in the 1980s, all the time. The multiple balconies feel excessive, the bar is hard to get to and even harder to hang out by, and the location--way off in the city's ribcage--feels weird and can be kind of a slog. That said, this place has some banging events and showcases some awesome underground music, so you can't really argue with it. If there's something you want to see here, make the trek, but I wouldn't casually roll up hoping they have something cool going on
A Music Must!
Elizabeth K. Nov 19, 2012
Terminal 5 attracts great talent. I've seen several notable performances here: Gotye, Citizen Cope, and Julian Casablancas amongst others. Terminal 5's ticket prices also tend to be quite reasonable. Because of the reasons listed above, Terminal 5 can get very crowded, sometimes uncomfortably so. The architecture of the venue also allows for large vertical columns that can block one's visibility of the stage. If you're on the shorter side, like me, the combination of the columns and the crowd can make it difficult to see the stage. The solution to this, of course, is to show up early and get a space on the balcony. Much better! If you love to see live music, this venue should be on your list of places to check out.
New York's Premiere Indie Venue
Daniel B. Oct 17, 2012
Unless you're into really into spending hundreds on catching world tours of mega bands and popstars like Coldplay and Katy Perry at Madison Square Garden, the best place to catch a show in New York is at Terminal 5. This massive venue hosts everything from raves like HARD NYC to mellow pop groups like Grouplove to singer-songwriters like Fiona Apple. This is where LCD Soundsystem closed out their career with a throaty soulful rendition of Empire State of Mind. If you want to witness music history in the making, this is the place to be. Get your tickets online, because waiting in a long line the day of the concert only to find out that the show's sold out isn't really all that fun.
