    Best Buy Theater - Concert Venue | Theater in New York.
    Nov 23, 2013 A Hidden Gem in Plain Sight "Although located in Times Square--the heart of New York City--Best Buy Theater has managed to stay relatively off the radar in terms of first-rate venues. Once you make it through the ferocious crowds and extremely tight security, the indoor theater warmly embraces your presence as an integral part of the night's collective intimacy. The nearly eight-year-old theater can hold up to 2,100 people, but its unique design--courtesy of award-winning architect David Rockwell--creates a familiar, homey atmosphere. With GA standing room up front and mezzanine seating in the back, the Best Buy theater can accommodate the needs and wants of almost any concert-goer. And thanks to the theater's state-of-the-art sound system, the quality is great regardless of where you choose to sit or stand. A spacious lounge area adjacent to the theater offers a pleasant escape to those who need a brief moment of relaxation. Concert attendees of age can purchase reasonably priced alcoholic beverages from a very well-run bar; lines aren't too long and they move relatively quickly. From there, you can either head back to see the live music or recline on one of the many comfortable lounge chairs and watch the show on a TV monitor. The choice is yours. If you can't make it inside to see the performance in person, don't fret. This amazing venue is equipped with an 85-foot HD screen outside the theater that is capable of presenting live, digital footage from the stage or anywhere else in the Best Buy Theater. One way or another, you'll be able to see that show you've always wanted to see. The one downside: leaving the venue. Exercise serious caution while doing so. 2,000 people frantically doing anything is usually a bad thing, but when 2,000 people are rushing out of Best Buy Theater and into Times Square, one of the most crowded destinations in the world, it's exponentially worse. Don't lose track of your friends, exit slowly, and always, ALWAYS have a pre-determined location to reconvene if separated. Just follow these simple guidelines and Best Buy Theater will give you the time of your life. " hide

    Output - Club | Nightclub | Live Music Venue in New York.
    Nov 23, 2013 NYC's New Underground Dance Haven "Residents of Williamsburg will be pleased to know that their Brooklyn neighborhood is home to one of the best nightclubs in the United States: Output. Disregard all pre-conceived notions of pretentious clubbing and over-the-top raving because this intimate and somewhat esoteric venue plays by its own rules...and adheres to them strictly. Output owners Shawn Schwartz and Nicholas Matar designed the space with one simple goal in mind: create the best live experience for the passionate club attendees. In doing so, the two music scene veterans put in place a sound system of the highest quality. The Funktion-One system provides crystal clear sound without the egregious volume that's present in many other large-scale sound systems. Although Output's stellar sound system is certainly one of its hallmarks, the club's physical layout is also quite noteworthy. For a 452-person capacity venue, the space is enormous. While most of the action occurs on the ground floor, which can be quite sweaty and crowded at times, Output gives its party-goers choice in where they would like to go party. If the main dance floor is too much to handle, simply retreat upstairs to grab a drink and watch your fellow music-lovers sway to the groovy beats. Moreover, there is a swanky rooftop with huge lounge areas that can accommodate large groups. In the warmer months, it's a great spot to go and hang out with some friends if the club crowd becomes overwhelming (after all, the typical 10pm-4am night at Output can seem like quite the marathon). In addition to the six-hour leviathan DJ sets, Output hosts some phenomenal Sunday "darties" (day parties). Unlike the music-enthusiast scene that dominates the club's nightlife, the day scene is far more casual and, for the most part, held exclusively on the rooftop. Although a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, there is always a small chance of encountering "bros" who are dead-set on getting blackout drunk. With its breathtaking sound system, surprisingly unpretentious crowd, and some of the best underground DJs, Output has made its mark as a premiere venue for true music-lovers. Whether you're in for the full six hours or just trying to catch an hour or two of some great tunes, Output will not disappoint. For all you youngsters, however, leave the fake ID at home--Output is 21+." hide
