Apollo Theater - Review

America’s music landscape has a lot contributed to it from the famous Apollo Theater. Established in 1934, this place is hot spot for African- American music culture. Dating back to the days of Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald to the present day Jackson five and Jay Z, it is one of the most cross cultures music venues of the country. Today, the vision it began with once has somehow been met with and with time is also expanding.  With music at its heart, it is a place for established artists as well as artists who wish to establish themselves. It presents them with a direction and curators with the talent they are looking for! For a mélange of ethnicities met with music, this place is perfect for you.

Apollo Theater, New York City Reviews

  • Beautiful place. Clean and well taken care of. The have an elevator for the handicapped or disabled. They have coat check and bag check for large items. The seating was cool the place is much smaller in person then on TV. There's a bar on every floor which was great. Bathrooms were very nice and clean and there's just so much history there it was amazing. I can't wait to go back!!!

  • OK so it was first time going here for the mothers day special. The people who worked there were very nice and helpful. Now there seating on TV first balcony is horrible. There is little to no leg room. If you want to be comfortable I would suggest getting tickets on the ground floor. But overall it was a great experience.

  • The legendary Apollo Theater has not lost its importance. I've seen so many wonderful shows here from independent artists to Oprah. The yearly Kwanzaa festival is always heart-warming, Amateur night is an interesting experience, and the Apollo Music Cafe has some great smaller acts as well. As a tall woman, I struggle a bit with the lack of leg room in the balcony seating and even more so with the lack of ANY room in the balcony restroom stalls. But even that's not enough to make me want to give less than 5 stars.

  • It was honestly so magical just walking inside. I went on a class trip during black history month. The play itself made me laugh, cry, and leap with joy. The sheer amount of history you feel from just walking in is almost overwhelming.... Almost. The people working there are just so nice and welcoming. Although the woman's bathroom is very small, can't say much about the men's never really been in there, I wouldn't want to change anything. It old and classic. Let's not forget the chandelier. The whole place just oozes regality.

  • Great shows. If your going to a show that's for studio audience where you see live performances televised be patient. If your not extremely early there will be a line going around the corner to venue. They will hand tickets as you wait on the line. You must have an invitation in order to have a free ticket. Use the bathroom before seating it's going to be hard if your in the middle of rows going in and out. Easy to get to by train or bus. Driving can be insane it's meter parking. Parking lots are in the area but not any. Best bet get a Uber/cab/taxi. They do have paid shows that are usually awesome. Small bathrooms. So go when you know no one else will. Enjoy!
