Roseland Ballroom, New York City

4.1
The Roseland Ballroom was a multipurpose hall, in a converted ice skating rink, with a colorful ballroom dancing pedigree, in New York City's theater district, on West 52nd Street in Manhattan.


The venue, according to its website, accommodated 3,200 standing (with an additional 300 upstairs), 2,500 for a dance party, between 1,300 and 1,500 in theatre style, 800-1,000 for a sit-down dinner, and 1,500 for a buffet and dancing.
The venue hosted a wide range of events, from a Hillary Clinton birthday party, to annual gay circuit parties, to movie premieres, to musical performances of all genres, including Beyoncé's Elements of 4 show and internet stars Team StarKid's Apocalyptour National Concert Tour. It was also known as the place American singer Fiona Apple broke down during a concert in 2000.
The rear of the venue faced West 53rd Street and the Ed Sullivan Theater.
On October 18, 2013, it was announced that the venue would close on April 7, 2014. Lady Gaga completed a short residency as the last performer before the Roseland Ballroom closed.

  • Great venue! Large and plenty of room to dance when I got away from everyone! It didnt get too hot which is a big deal  more »
  • Saw X and Blondie here last week. Stood downstairs for X, and was up in the balcony for Blondie. Excellent view from both locations as it is a small venue  more »

  • Just a beautiful old magical space I love to see shows here!
  • One of the best venues out there! So sad to see it go! Never too cramped, some great artists play there and you always get a chance to make it up front! The security isn't too tight, there is no staff patrolling around, they aren't out to ruin your night or anything just make sure everyone is safe, which you really can't say about a lot of venues. Has always had the greatest crowds ever, it's such a shame they're closing down.
