Have been to this venue at least 4 times for concerts. Always impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. Security does a great job in making the venue feel safe despite what at times can be over enthusiastic fans. Thank you to George...More

Great and numerous bar space, big enough to get great acts but not so big to lose intimacy. I've seen the Lumineers, Empire of the Sun and Thievery Corporation to name a few. If you can score space on the vip level definitely worth it...More

Overcrowded dump with typical tough guy security. Been to most of the significant music venues in the NY metro area and this was my least favorite of them all. Way too many tickets sold for this empty warehouse with sound softening padding on the walls....More

The space was decent. Ample space in the upper rows for a large amount of people to have adequate views of the stage. Restroom attendants were quick in getting people in and out. Good place to see shows!

Went to The Kills concert (GREAT performance!) and had seen mixed reviews for Terminal 5, so went with skeptical attitudes. We arrived 45 minutes before the show and not surprisingly for a stand up venue, the prime spots were taken. But, we did get a...More

I've never been to terminal five but in reviews I read that someone got in by giving the guy at the rope $20 but another person said he offered $20 and he didn't get in.

Shows vary on age limits,typically set by the band. The venue doesn't set age restrictions. You can check the Terminal 5 website before the show to see what age restrictions have been set,typically 18+. Good luck! Every kid... More
