Every Saturday, a nocturnal circus invades Webster Hall's sprawling sextet of dance floors, transforming it into the setting for some yet-to-be-written Neil Gaiman novel. Trapeze artists soar through the air above the grand ballroom as DJs Mike Chach and Tengo alchemize house and electronic beats below. As dancers wend their way to the Marlin Room's mash-up of top-40 tracks courtesy of DJ Ray Roc, they'll rub past fire-breathers, snake charmers, and go-go girls aglow with phosphorescent body paint. Balcony dwellers, meanwhile, can ponder why the tarot reader suggested canceling an upcoming tour of the fireworks factory as they nod along to Sean Sharp and D.L.O.'s sinuous hip-hop. Upstairs, the studio gives overwhelmed revelers an intimate space where they can chill out and take in a cavalcade of live bands.
Designated a city landmark in 2008, Webster Hall was named Nightclub of the Year in 2011 by Nightclub & Bar magazine and called the “jewel of the Village” by Nobel laureate Eugene O’Neill. First opened in 1886, its iconic framework has hosted such major acts as Prince and Mick Jagger, and served as a speakeasy, a lecture hall, and a mentor to troubled teenage buildings. Today, live shows performed by stars such as Kanye West and Alicia Keys take place in the Grand Ballroom, which is equipped with state-of-the-art acoustics and cutting-edge audio-visual equipment. In addition, the venue hosts weekly dance-club nights, the official NYC Halloween Parade After Party, and an annual New Year’s Eve Ball.
There is a great energy in the building and there are so many different rooms and levels to explore.Brian F., Yelp, 5/7/12
