NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: The Roseland Ballroom is a quirky mid-sized music venue that has gained a reputation for hosting an eclectic mix of musical acts- Justin Timberlake, Radiohead and Bjork have all performed their concerts in NYC at this venue. Formerly an ice skating rink, this historic building is actually one of the bigger small-scale NYC music venues, with standing room for 3,200 people. Recalling a bygone more elegant era, the Roseland Ballroom standouts with its elevated stage, hardwood floors and a balcony.

Why We Go: The Roseland Ballroom is an iconic building that has become the go-to destination for indie rock performances in the city. An elevated stage and a roomier dance floor make this a prime place to for concerts in NYC.

  • Historic Background: The Roseland Ballroom has been a presence on the New York City nightlife scene since 1919, when it used to be frequented by decadent flappers dancing the night away to the Charleston. It has remained a dance hall fixture ever since, although today is more well-known as the location of some of the best concerts in NYC.
  • Fantastic Performances:Indie rockers flock to the Roseland Ballroom and give some of their most legendary performances here. Sometimes superstar performers who are usually giving concerts to packed arenas make the Roseland Ballroom stage theirs for the night as well- Beyonce and the Rolling Stones have put on intimate shows here in the past.
  • Plenty of room for dancing: This venue holds 3,500 people, which may seem tiny when compared to the likes of Madison Square garden, but is actually one of the larger venues for concerts in NYC. The increased space means you can dance along to your favorite song, or even cut loose and join in on the mosh pit that may be happening on any given night

Inside Knowledge: The back end of the venue faces the Ed Sullivan Theatre, and can often be spotted on the David Letterman show. Anytime the show camera pans down the street, viewers can make out the distinctive industrial exterior of the Roseland Ballroom.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do expect a line: The line for the Roseland Ballroom often wraps around the block, so allot enough time to queue up and wait for the doors to open, especially on the night of one of the more popular concerts in NYC.
  • Do order tickets online: To decrease some of the potential waiting time and avoid the hassle of a show being sold out, order tickets online ahead of time.
  • Don’t forget to explore the area: The Theater District includes Times Square, which is one of the most famous areas in the world, and is chock-filled with exciting things to do in New York City. Come early to discover this must-see area of the Big Apple.
  • Don’t BYOB: Unlike a few other NYC music venues, guests are not allowed to bring their own beverages into the concert. Instead, plan on grabbing a drink at one of the many bars in lively Theater District ahead of time, or plan on waiting in line at the modest bar.
