He guys, I can't seem to find a seating chart for 54 below, so for someone who has been there, how is the bar seating? Is it any good, or should one try to pay the extra amount for the "main dining" section?

Thanks!

In my three visits, I've found the sightlines to be excellent from everywhere I've sat.

I sat with three friends at the bar once, and it was excellent, both sight- and sound-wise. The bar area is elevated, and the seats at the bar itself are high.

Plus there's the added advantage of getting served right away during the performance without having to wait for a waiter to come by.

If I were paying (I wasn't for the two times I was in the main dining section), I'd probably opt for the bar seats.

The bar seating is a great way of spending a little less and the view is excellent. Otherwise, just get there early and smile and be nice and say that you want to sit close.

Personally, I prefer the "endcaps," the seat at the far end of the table that are perpendicular to the stage--or even the banquettes at the back. The room is intimate and the stage is elevated, so I prefer to be further back.

Does this venue have an open mic night or is it performers only? Looks like a very nice venue.

I've never been but it sounds like the equivalent to Birdland's Cast Party

I will be going to 54 Below for the first time in November to see Jeremy Jordan, and was wondering how the "bar rail" seats are. I am travelling solo and it seemed like the least awkward choice. I'm not really much of a social butterfly. How's the view from the rail?

If you wanna save money Bar is great. Would not recommend side view seats. Bar rail is also very good!

Bar rail seats are fine.

Side view can be okay depending on the act. I sometimes request one of them by table number.

What's the dress code. I'm hitting the Hustlaball after Kiss of the Spiderwoman on Sunday and I don't know if I will have enough time to go back to the hotel and change. Are assless chaps ok?

The Skivvies are always assless so it should be okay.

How can you be late to a dance?! If you go home and change, it will still be happening when you get there 10 minutes later, no?

I've been twice, both times solo, and both times seated with really nice people. On my way out last time, I thanked the maitre d' for putting me at such a fun table, and he told me that they try to match up people they think will enjoy each other. How they know that is beyond me, but somehow it worked. BTW, if you like steak tartare, theirs is top-notch.

There's a little Dolly Levi in everyone who works there.

^^^Dress code? It's pretty all over the place. You can wear what you want. I wouldn't wear shorts or ratty jeans, etc. but you will see everything from a not too fancy cocktail dress to nice jeans, suits or slacks & shirt... and everyone feels comfortable.
