Webster Hall

125 E. 11th St.
Web Site Group Tickets

Located in the East Village, Webster Hall is one of New York City’s oldest nightclubs. Built in 1886, it originally served as a hall for union rallies, weddings and military functions, and during the 1910-20s, masquerade balls. Public concerts started in the 1950s. In 1980, the Hall was a popular nightspot called The Ritz, where acts such as Prince, Tina Turner, U2, Metallica and other then-“emerging” acts performed. The club also had a unique video component. When the Ritz relocated in 1989, the Ballinger Brothers took over, with the venue reopening as Webster Hall in 1992. Today it serves as a nightclub, concert venue, corporate events center, and recording venue, and has a capacity of 1,500 people for its main theater space, with four floors and five unique environments.   

In 2008, it was designated a New York City Landmark. In April 2013, New York band The Yeah Yeah Yeahs held a concert there to celebrate the release of their newest release, Mosquito.

Webster Hall is easy to get to by subway, N/Q/R or 4/5/6 to Union Square station.
