Knitting Factory - Tired of those decrepit, stuffy concert venues where the only thing weaker than the drinks is tonight's special guest? The Knitting Factory is atypical of most New York live music venues, because it has a little something called atmosphere. Not to mention an amazingly friendly staff and plenty of space to either kick-back or practice your spin-kick while your favorite band performs.Comprised of 3 different floors (all complete with full bars), each has their own draw. Dance like a maniac on the lower level's dance floor, and rest your feet in the cave-like lounge. Head upstairs to the mainstage to check out tonight's act, or watch it from above in the balcony. Conspire with your friends over one of the candle-lit tables while sipping super-strong gin and tonics on the the upper level.
