Built just before the Stock Market Crash of 1929, the Bowery Ballroom was formerly a high end retail store.
It remained locked down for several years and it was only in 1997 that is became a music venue.
The club serves as the namesake of Joan Baez's Bowery Songs album, recorded live at a concert at the Bowery Ballroom on November 6, 2004.
It has amazing sound, the perfect size, a great story, and an cool bar! Check out their website for the full list of upcoming shows!
