Irving plaza

It’s a great place to see niche-y vets (Television, GWAR) and buzzy newcomers like Meghan Trainor on their way up to larger spaces. And from the parlor-lit lounge downstairs to the shadowy corners of the balconies, this pleasantly worn old ballroom whispers of New York’s rock past.

Built over 150 years ago, the building at 17 Irving Place exists in various incarnations. The original building was four separate brownstones that were eventually combined into a hotel in 1870. In 1927, the building was gutted and turned into a theater-style ballroom and christened Irving Plaza. Over the next few decades, Irving Plaza will serve Bethesda union representation space for folk dance groups, and the Polish Army Veteran community center, as well as a place for peoples Hootenannies songs with Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie.

In 1978, Irving Plaza was transformed into a rock music venue and has since hosted acts such as Talking Heads, The Ramones, U2, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, establishing its history kakpremer-concert Hall in New York. Today, Irving Plaza continues to be a major stepping stone to career paths of hundreds of artists every year.
