Large nightclub heads to Hell’s Kitchen

December 13, 2012 11:30AM

The far west side of Hell’s Kitchen is slated to get a 1,240-person nightclub, DNAinfo reported. Called Space NY, it will join two existing clubs already in the neighborhood and another that’s also slated to open. There’s no date yet on when Space NY will open. Space NY will be located at 637 West 50th Street at 12th Avenue. It is owned by Eden Ballroom LLC, which also has the Taj Lounge under its belt. The other nightclub coming to the area is La Boom — a Latin club slated to occupy three stories at 605 West 48th Street.

The nightclub will feature a 24-hour café, a 266-person lounge on the ground level, and a 9,00-person nightclub above. Some 25 guards will keep crowds under control.

Pacha And Hudson Terrace are the existing clubs in the neighborhood. They are both situated on West 46th Street.

Space NY on Tuesday reportedly won unanimous support from the Business Licenses and Permits Committee of Community Board 4, due to the industrial area’s low density. [DNAinfo]Zachary Kussin
