About the Venue

The legendary Beacon Theatre is a 2,600-seat venue built in 1929 and designed in the art deco style by architect Walter Ahlschlager. Designated a New York landmark building by the NYC Landmarks Preservation Committee in 1979 and acquired by MSGE in 2006, the Beacon has become a venerable rock room for generations of New Yorkers and an intimate setting for unforgettable concerts and events.

The Madison Square Garden Company completed a major restoration of the Beacon Theatre in February 2009, returning the theater to its original Roaring Twenties grandeur. The reinvention was based on extensive historic research, as well as detailed, on-site examination of original, decorative painting techniques that had been covered by decades-old layers of paint. The Beacon Theatre has won several architectural awards recognizing its outstanding restoration.


The theater offers a variety of concessions, including bar service depending on the event. Outside food and beverages (including cans and bottles) are not permitted inside.
