Webster Hall has been the premiere entertainment venue for the people of New York City since 1886.
Bohemian Masquerades. Suffragist rallies. Capone-owned speakeasy. RCA recording Studio. Rock club. Since its construction in 1886, this 40,000 square foot New York City landmark has hosted every type of major event and performance from across cultural spectrums. With roots as a social hall for the blue collar East Village to its conversion by RCA as their main East Coast recording studio in the 1950s and it’s later emergence in the 80s as NYC’s top punk and rock club The Ritz, Webster Hall has seen millions of people live out their most unforgettable nights within its hallowed halls.
Today, Webster Hall is one of North America’s premiere entertainment spaces, hosting the most prominent concerts and parties on the planet while staying true to its roots of edgy, crowd pleasing experiences. With 3 performance spaces of varying sizes under one roof and 5 distinct rooms for entertainment and leisure, the building has the versatility to host events ranging from gatherings between 100 and 3,000 people to performances of all sizes, building-wide festivals and beyond. Located in the heart of the East Village a few blocks from Union Square, any event held at Webster Hall is put front and center on the world’s greatest stage: New York City.
