Irving Plaza

Parking & Transportation:

Street parking. Public transportation is nearby in buses and subway lines to 14th Street/Union Square.

Jump the Line: Yes, disabled patrons are allowed in first
Jump the Line – Other:

If you arrive before doors and speak to security, usually they will let you jump the line.

Stairs: Yes, there are stairs, but there's an elevator
Stairs – Other/Details:

The main way to get to the show floor is via a flight of stairs. In my experience, there is one elevator, and it's a freight elevator - you need a member of staff to bring you back to it and to operate it.

Is There A Designated Accessible Seating Area? No, there's not an accessible seating area
Accessible Seating Area Details

There is no designated accessible seating area. On the main show floor there is a side platform with seats which is usually reserved for VIP ticket holders (I think there are only stairs to this area).

Balcony Details:

There is a balcony that can be mainly be accessed by stairs, or by the freight elevator. Half of it is closed off for VIP/guest listers, and they have seats and tables. Sometimes the venue will bring you in early and give you a folding chair next to the sound desk in the balcony, and from there the view is great, but there's nothing blocking you from other fans. The rest of the balcony has no seats, except for a small lounge in the back with couches by a bar - from the lounge, you can't see the stage but the show is broadcasted on TVs.

Seating: Yes, there's seating available for those who need it
Seating-Other/Details:

Sometimes the venue will bring you in early and give you a folding chair next to the sound desk in the balcony, and from there the view is great, but there's nothing blocking you from other fans.
"I once went to a show here when the entire balcony was closed off, and I was given a barstool on the main floor. However, they put the barstool up against the back wall, next to the bar, so I couldn't really see and everyone was at the bar talking so I couldn't really hear the show either. They would not let me move the barstool closer."

Restrooms: Unsure if there are accessible restrooms
Restrooms – Other/Details:

The only restrooms are on the first floor, next to the coat check / box office.
