The End Of Webster Hall
Many of us have set foot in the premises of Webster Hall at least once in our lives. In the heart of East Village in New York, it’s iconic Ballroom has been the host of international artists for more than (no kidding) 100 years. Yet, all good things must come to an end and now it’s time to say goodbye.
Last Thursday, Webster Hall shut the doors for good after announcing in June that its lease was sold to Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment. Deep renovations will start soon and, although we are not sure how long they will take, a recent report in Billboard is indicating it will take from 2 to 3 years. What we can be sure though, is that the works will give Webster Hall a brand new look, as Heath Miller, Webster’s VP of entertainment, said: “I’m sure it’s going to emerge a much cleaner and shinier place, which is good on many levels, like the bathrooms. I hope the energy, character, and vibe that makes Webster Hall special remains intact.”
Just a week ago, Webster Hall witnessed for the last time the vibes of Electronic Music lovers. Starring Skrillex, the place held one unforgettable night, 4 and a half hours of non-stop music at this historical place. We certainly hope the future will bring us more moments like this.
With the total makeover of the venue’s face, a name change might arrive as well. Of course, nothing is confirmed yet, but rumors say it might be named Spectrum Center or Spectrum Hall. Whatever the name is, one thing is certain to us: we’ll be ready to dance it off.
