Built in 1886, Webster Hall has been through several iterations (and names) before settling into its tenure as a high-caliber concert venue. In the 1950s, performers like Tito Puente and Woody Guthrie graced the stage, and when it was known as The Ritz in the '80s, the same venue hosted rock legends like U2, Eric Clapton and Guns N' Roses. These days, you can expect to find indie acts, metal bands and hip-hop artists. Just be sure to show up early if you want a decent view.

Webster Hall has a very long history as a gathering place for over a hundred years. Large open ballroom is where I have seen most concerts, and they do host a great variety of acts. Have seen bands including Ghost, The Ting Tings, and Nevermore. They also have a smaller venue downstairs, that hosts probably 200 people. Very intimate evening at this location. They also have a bar attached to the venue.
Awkward set up and the crowd felt fratty (not my thing). I saw a show on their main stage and it was set up in such a way that only 10% of the people could actually see. There was a lot of columns and equipment in the way. I wouldn't want to go back here.
