Alcoholic beverages are served during events along with light snacks. On most nights, a smoking section and bar are open on the roof deck. The venue is operated by The Bowery Presents.

The venue was formerly a nightclub called Club Exit (also known as Mirage and Carbon) until its closure by the Drug Enforcement Administration in 2003.[2] Subsequently, Bowery Presents acquired and renovated the venue for live music shows.[1]

As of August 16, 2021, Terminal 5 and other indoor venues will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination from all who enter.[3]
