Bowery Ballroom

Parking & Transportation:

Only street parking is available

Jump the Line: Unsure if disabled patrons are allowed in first
Stairs: Yes, there are stairs, but there's an alternate entrance without stairs
Stairs – Other/Details:

Typically, the venue scans tickets and sends fans downstairs to their lounge before allowing them back up to the normal venue area. Sometimes the venue lets you in an alternate entrance that is flat to get to the show space.

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

There is a balcony but it's only accessed via stairs. There are seats and tables, but they're usually reserved for VIPs. Sometimes the venue will let you sit there which is ideal because you are separated from most of the crowd, other times they will only give you a barstool in the balcony, and other fans will lean on you which is not ideal.

Seating: Yes, there's seating available for those who need it

"The seating provided was a barstool against a wall but in a very crowded space of the main floor. There was nothing separating me from the main crowd, so when people pushed past to get to and from the bar, or into the pit, I felt unsafe."

Restrooms – Other/Details:

The only restrooms are in the basement, which can only be reached by stairs.

Additional Comments:

"Their website said to arrive 15 minutes before doors open and speak to security or the manager and handicap seating would be arranged. Sometimes this helps, sometimes they just don't care."
