    Irving Plaza: Cool ass place to see a show.

    by Bela_LUng Written Dec 10, 2005

    Irving Plaza is cool as *** to see a show. A rather smallish place makes for an intimate show. They have some ok beers at the bar too. I saw Fischerspooner and Front 242 there. Both shows rocked (Front 242 was much more excellent of course) and the sound for the spooner show was off but for Front 242 the sound system held up to the bass attack.

    The floor sometimes felt like it was going to give out, so stand where you think the toilet is and at least you'll get to the toilet ahead of everyone else at the end of the show.

    Located right near South Union Square so you can conveniently find some bars and *** around there after or before the show to do crazy stuff.

    Dress Code: Live Shrimp and electric eel pants only. Strict Seafood dress code in effect.

    Irving Plaza Theatre: Catch the show

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We often come here to Irving Plaza for concerts. Usually I must admit it is a Pavement or Jicks show as I am not a large fan of concerts anymore and it takes this to get me to go out.

    Dress Code: Clothes. Prove you are wearing something, anything, and you can get in.

    Well, in one week in NYC, I cannot be an expert, but few good pubs and clubs were near union square.
    I was 2 nights at the Irvin Plaza and saw great live shows.

    Dress Code: No need to be too elegant, just nice sportive & comfortable clothes.
