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
