What is the surrounding area like?

Madison Square Garden sits right in the heart of New York City directly above Penn Station. If you're in New York just for the day and want to tick all the tourist boxes, Times Square is just a six-minute walk away, and on the way there you can drop into Grand Central Station. If you keep heading away from the venues you'll find yourself in the wide open spaces of Central Park in ten minutes.

Where are the best places to eat near Madison Square Garden?

Nick 'n Stef's

Voted one of the top 10 steakhouses in New York City, Nick 'n Stefs is definitely worth a visit. It offers great steaks and fresh seafood and, located right next to Madison Square Garden on West 33rd Street, it is an ideal place to eat before or after a concert.

Lugo café

In the mood for Italian? Lugo Café is located directly across the road in One Penn Plaza. Along with everything you would expect from a traditional Italian restaurant, their Lugo meatballs come highly recommended!

Keen's steakhouse

Situated on 72 West 36th Street, Keen's steakhouse is just under a ten-minute walk from Madison Square Garden. Their steaks will set you back over $50 but can be a great start (or finish) to the evening.

Where should people head before/after the concert?

Stout NYC

One of New York City's largest Irish pubs, the three-story high Stout sits just a stone's throw from Madison Square Garden. Open until  4am on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, it's a great place to continue the party. With over 150 types of bottled beer, 25 drafts and more than 65 Irish whiskies, what's not to like?

Pennsylvania 6 NYC

A three-minute walk from the venue, Pennsylvania 6 sits on West 31st Street. It offers good cocktails, craft beers and a 1920's feel. It does have a reputation for getting slightly crowded, but isn't that the sign of a good bar anyway?

The Lady Gaga concert was A-MAZ-ING. MSG couldn't have been any better and Lady Gaga made every single minute that I waited, every chill I got from the cold, worth it! I love Lady Gaga and love Madison Square Garden.

Liked: Lady Gaga
Disliked: Long wait - but worth it.
