Coffee, wine and great entertainment at Waltz Astoria
Live Music Venues in Queens NY

Sadly the Waltz Astoria is no more, but that doesn’t mean the end of live music in Queens. There are still lots of great venues you can visit to enjoy live entertainment. Here are some suggestions for a brilliant night out with some live music…

Rockwood Music Hall

Rockwood Music Hall offers a wide variety of musical entertainment on their three stages. There’s no charge to get in, you just need to buy at least one drink, and the drinks are reasonably priced too. It’s not a huge venue, they really have crammed those three stages in there, so don’t overdress for a night at Rockwood Music Hall as it gets hot when it’s busy.

Terraza 7

Terraza 7 has a great atmosphere and it’s beautifully decorated. They have some amazing cocktails. Be sure to try the coconut mojito! There is often lively live music that will have you up and dancing the night away.

The Bowery Ballroom

The beautiful venue plays host to some great concerts. There’s a comfortable bar area to relax in before the show, the drinks are a little pricey though. There’s also a cloakroom so you can drop off your coat.

Saint Vitus

If you’re into rock or heavy metal music then you’re going to love Saint Vitus. This unpretentious venue is welcoming and friendly, the drinks are cheap and the atmosphere is fab. On street parking is easy to find and it’s free. But be warned, the music here is very loud!

Gussy’s Bar

You’ll always get a good welcome when you visit Gussy’s Bar. This place is so friendly and laid back and there are often some great live bands on. They don’t serve food, but they are happy for you order in a takeaway to be delivered right to your table!
