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.

Great venue, I used to come here all the time in college, it can be a little confusing because of the layout (there's a few levels and weird hidden sections) but its an awesome venue, great location right in the middle of union square and they do all different kinds of music so there's always something for everyone. 


Webster Hall is one of the main concert venues in NYC. It has three stages and is therefore huge in terms of being the place to be for a lot of concerts. I love that webster hall does more than just concerts, it hosts club nights and many other events (I'm still waiting to finally attend Webster Hell). I also love that all genres of music play here, whether its a dj set, I love the 90s, a metal show, punk, pop, it's all here at Webster. There is a security pat down now, but given the current times, I can't say I'm surprised. Plus concert tickets get you free access to the club after!


A New York City icon Webster Hall is really, I think, an important part of any young persons life in NYC. Almost everyone has had a VERY memorable night here, including me, and I even know one friend who met her husband here! Many of the best indie bands perform here on one of the multiple stages, DJs, caberet's comedy, Zombie Raves, the works! Although as I am getting older now I definitely like it here less and less. Its crowded, its overpriced, its dirty and you have to get groped by security before entering. But for many, that's part of its charm! 

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.

Webster hall has come to be a second family to me , from watching the miami championship game at the bar with the dj hype man too jumping in v.i.p making out with the hottest girl . Webster hall makes you the party person you never were , I must admit its one amazing feeling ! Webster hall is better than any over hype clubs out there period.
