Best Venue to See a Show If You're a Lazy Motherfucker and Love Sitting 

The Regency Ballroom

There are a number of reasons why you should see a show at The Regency Ballroom — its ornate, turn-of-the-century architecture and eclectic lineup of performers, to name a few — but no reason is more compelling than the venue's ample seating. If you've been to The Regency before, you might not have noticed the rows upon rows of movie-theater-style seating (which actually are real movie-theater chairs dating from 1909, the year the venue was built) on the mezzanine level above the bar. Because of the sheer number of seats up there and the fact that most people are too preoccupied with getting an up-close view on the ground level, there is always a plethora of seating to choose from, with choice views, to boot. It also doesn't hurt that the chairs are upholstered in velvet, especially if you're wearing a mini skirt.
