Bowery Ballroom

Bowery Ballroom has been holding its own in the downtown live music scene since 1997, bringing healthy competition to a part of the city over which Webster Hall (spoiler: up next on the list) had free reign. Twice as many show options in the area can only mean good things for would-be concertgoers. The space, literally right outside the Bowery JZ subway stop, has been so successful that it has since developed into Bowery Presents, the organization that now runs several venues on this list.
