Best stadium-style seating that's not in a stadium (2008)

NORTHSIX

Contrary to standard rock clubs, where seating options include wobbly bar stools on which to duck drink orders all night and—gross—the floor itself, NORTHSIX is furnished with a well-carpentered hill of bench seats for optimum stage viewing. Sitting there is oddly reminiscent of high school gym class, where, from the sidelines, you'd relish watching classmates commingle in a stagnant game of volleyball.
