There's no doubt about it, the house that improv legend Del Close and founding partner Charna Halpern built rules. Not only has iO churned out legendary folk like Mike Meyers and Amy Poehler among others, but it consistently puts the art of improv first, most noticeably via the Harold, its signature long-form. One of two upstairs cabaret theaters, the space is cozy and intimate and servers are on-hand to brings snacks and drinks from the bar.

The iO Theater is a great time. The space is fairly new (they moved) and it's an intimate setting, but a lot of fun. There's always something going on here, and there's a good chance you'll know someone involved, as iO hosts a ton of classes.
