The Highline Ballroom's commitment to eclectic acts ranging from soulful blues to kid-friendly singer-songwriters has earned the sonic setting accolades from music fans including Citysearch’s Best Live Music Venue of 2008. The reggae ambassadors of Third World have parlayed their 10 Grammy nominations and unchecked diplomatic immunity to work with the Jackson Five, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, and other talented performers. Often referred to as the ‘seventh Python,’ Neil Innes inspires lyrical laughs with clever tunes including songs he wrote for the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail and other works in the comedy troupe’s canon. Soothe preadolescent ears with David Weinstone’s playful nursery rhymes about such topics as taxis, skyscrapers, and boogers, a huge hit with kids, parents, and congested cab drivers. The Reverend Horton Heat stirs up audiences with wild live shows that mix raucous southern rockabilly tunes with the delivery of a gospel revival.
Bass-barraged bodies can pick up shock absorption from Highline Ballroom’s full menu of appetizers, entrees, children’s food, homemade desserts and more. Diners seated in the balcony or at the bar can strum on entrees such as three-cheese grilled sandwich ($15) and mini Kobe burgers ($13), and moshers can nosh on Pacific Rim shrimp cocktails ($10) and fried potato straws ($5).
- But indoors, the spartan 700-person-capacity space distinguishes itself with exposed beams, lounge-worthy lighting, and a column-free main floor with great sight lines from both the wide downstairs area and the carpeted balcony. – Amos Barshad, New York
- When you walk into the ballroom you see there's plenty of space for everyone. Lots of "standing room only" for the musical patrons of the night. A good sized stage to fit a good amount of performers. – Clint H., Yelp, 2/8/11
