Located in the Lower East Side, the Rockwood Music Hall is known for hosting live performances in NYC with great artists like Lady Gaga, Gary Clark Jr., Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day and Mumford & Sons.
When the Rockwood Music Hall opened in the year of 2005, it was only a small bar that offered a few live performances. With time, it became one of the best New York City venues to go for live music.
Even though they’ve had huge names on stage, on the other hand the owner, Mr. Rockwood, enjoys putting together shows by emerging new young talents too. You will probably see several of these guys in the near future performing on much bigger stages! They are all fantastic artists!
They have a three different stages, so be sure to see them all. Some will charge a small cover fee, and other rooms are free of charge.
It is definitely one of the best places to meet these new upcoming bands, a great crowd, amazing music and the perfect vibe!
As many New York City venues, all shows have a one drink minimum standing and two drink minimum, if you’re seated.
Advance tickets are available online until 4pm on the day of the show. Any remaining tickets can be purchased at the door at showtime.
We also love the Lower East Side neighborhood. Here are a few places we recommend you to visit.
The Bluestockings Bookstore is definitely a place worth visiting to feel what this collectively-owned business is all about. Last, if you’re in the mood for shopping, go explore Vaute, the first vegan fashion line that is shaking the fashion world in New York.
