This small (capacity: 700) music venue in the Greenwich Village should be a great spot to see shows. It has a decent sound system and a large bar. But the stage is low, so when there aren’t tables, it’s impossible to see the musicians. Olafur Arnalds was amazing, though.

I have been here for music concerts and events. The venue is very spacious and has a great sound system.

This venue smells like a rough night out and the staff here are clearly having one. Intimate and worth a visit for a band you like but, like most businesses on Bleeker, the type of place that gives NYC a bad name.

Nerd Nite: A night of educational presentations, plus alcoholic beverages, and sometimes, a bit of speed dating thrown in. Yes, even nerds seek and deserve love. The organization celebrates its 10th anniversary with a big, geek fete at the end of March at Poisson Rouge. Past presentations have been on topics like holograms, music, and maths. For their speed dating events, ladies stay seated, while the men hop from table to table. A clock on the stage acts as a mini-date timer. Buzz. Move on. Keep notes. The following day, organizers will send mutual matches contact information. And let the real dating begin…

It's a nice venue, and depending on who's playing tickets can be really cheap.

Spot is spacious. I like the set up. Outside of the main performance area is a decent sized bar area, the bathrooms and coat check. This is the 1st section when coming into the venue down the stairs. Once they open up the doors to the main area there is another bar as well. So you have the option of 2 bars. Decent sound system.

I didn't go here for the bar, I went for the show in the Gallery (Yum's the Word, a brilliant, monthly storytelling show - they've got folks from the Moth, HBO and a whole bunch of other places). I really like the Gallery - it's intimate without being crowded, with a great little stage. The food was pretty decent as well. Looking at their website, they seem to be having tons of interesting different art-related things going on.
