Irving Plaza has an esteemed history as one of New York City's premier music venues. Guests enter through the classic lobby and climb one flight to the main room, a 3,300 square-foot clear span ballroom with polished wooden floors, crystal chandeliers and a fixed stage. A U-shaped balcony with fantastic sightlines overlooks the dance floor and stage. The main floor features a full-service bar at the back of the hall. The Balcony Lounge—with soft seating, crystal lamps and photos of the legends that have graced Irving Plaza's stage—is the perfect setting for a cocktail reception with a rock 'n' roll edge. Its location one block east of Union Square adds to its convenience and charm.
