Intimate vibe, potential surprise guest comedians

We went on a Sunday night, which I'm guessing is a quiet-ish night (if NYC even has those) as the audience was quite small and intimate. We ended up sharing a table with two girls as there was just two of us - fine with us but just be aware you may not get your own table if there's only... More

This was an awful experience, not welcoming, not funny abnd not nice at all. American customer service seemed to have deserted them. There were plenty of staff but apparently only one who was allowed to take our order and he was overwhelmed. What was that all about? Appalling customer service. Everyone was complaining. No one was getting served. Then the... More

Great Show, clean and very organized. Will return in the future. 2 drink min is no big deal but drinks in the lounge before the show don't count toward the min 2 drinks.

My wife and I took a weekend getaway to NYC. I've seen Gotham on tv through the years and decided to visit and we picked a great night. We went to the "Mixtape" show which happens once a month. It was outstanding with hillarious comics with a surprise special guest Kevin Hart!!!! This club is highly recommended with great staff.... More

Best night in NY. Funny relatable comedy, laughed so much, also starstruck.. best surprise seeing Jim Gaffigan & Jerry Seinfeld, best part of New York is getting out of Times Square and seeing the real NY. Amazing night out, guaranteed great laugh and great service x

Went on a whim and truly enjoyed the experience. They do a show the 3rd weekend of the month. There was a DJ, who was excellent, and a band too. The 5 comedians were very funny.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
