Bowery Ballroom

The Bowery Ballroom is a music venue in the Bowery section of New York City. The structure, at 6 Delancey Street, was built just before the Stock Market Crash of 1929. It stood vacant until the end of WWII, when it became a high-end retail store. The neighborhood subsequently went into decline again, and so did the caliber of businesses occupying the space. In 1997 it was converted into a music venue. It has a capacity of 550 people.

Directly in front of the venue's entrance is the Bowery Station on the BMT Nassau Street Line (J Z trains) of the New York City Subway.

The club serves as the namesake of Joan Baez's Bowery Songs album, recorded live at a concert at the Bowery Ballroom on November 6, 2004. It is also appears in the 2000 film Coyote Ugly as well as the 2008 film Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.
