New York City nightlife has been limited since the closing of Pacha NYC last January. Not only does the lack of nightclubs bind club-goers to a select few venues, it also restricts big name talents from performing in The Big Apple. Fortunately, it looks like New York City might be getting a new nightclub in Brooklyn soon.
Billy Bildstein, one of the organizers behind Zurich-based promoters CityFox, has been trying to open Avant Gardner, also known as Brooklyn Mirage, since last spring. However, their prior attempts have been shut down due to the organizers’ previous reputation. The party promoters have been shut down in the past for safety and fire-code violations. Bildstein appeared before the community board earlier this month in an attempt to gain support for his liquor license application.
Avant Gardner is expected to be a 6,000-capacity multipurpose venue that will offer concerts, art shows, corporate events, fashion shows, galas and more. Described as “the most spectacular outdoor and indoor event space in New York City”, the venue is expected to hire 171 employees and generate a $7.2 million in labor income. Avant Gardner hopes to call 111 Gardner Avenue home and will be decorated with 15,000 live plants, along with 35 palm trees, and will include a restaurant that serves tacos, pizza and German Street Food, according to their application.
The community board is set to vote on Avant Gardner’s liquor license on March 14th at their full board meeting. Stay tuned to EDMTunes for updates on this potential new venue in Brooklyn.
