Not quite as fancy a space as its name suggests, the Grand Ballroom is still a pretty elegant place to catch a show. In the same building as the gargantuan Hammerstein Ballroom, this spot is upstairs and accessible only via a somewhat claustrophobic elevator. The room feels a little like a convention hall due to the carpeting and movable chairs, but it's a nicely intimate, comfortable concert venue.
