Chelsea Music Hall is a brand-new venue scheduled to open this weekend, set in the basement of New York City’s Chelsea Market (the entrance is at 407 West 15th St between 9th & 10th Ave). The venue plans to host live music, comedy, DJs, visual art, and theatre, as well as private events. Chelsea Music Hall will also have delicious food options with Israeli celebrity chef Eyal Shani of Chelsea Market’s Mizon restaurant handling the menu and kitchen operation. The venue has been in soft-open mode since mid-September and has hosted a few shows in the past month.
Unlike most music venues around the city, the venue won’t be focused on one specific genre of music and will serve as a 250-occupant space for performers to try new things, according to the venue’s director, Michael Ginsberg. “Our vision of the music hall is one that lives beyond its four walls,” Ginsberg reported to do NYC.
The kitchen opens on Friday, October 19th, which is also the first official scheduled event: a weekly Friday-night dance party called “Soul in the Horn.” Although Chelsea Music Hall’s schedule still seems to be mostly vacant, there will be a dance party four days a week dedicated to Cleopatra, which serves a fusion of music, dance, fashion, theatre, and nightlife.
