Webster Hall

Webster Hall History

Webster Hall was originally built in 1886 and designed in the Renaissance Revival style. It was originally set up to be a rental hall, or hall for hire as it was called back then, and for the first several decades of its existence served as a gathering ground for groups that rented out the building. In the early Twentieth Century Webster Hall earned the nickname the Devils Playhouse because it served as a meeting hall for leftists, socialists, labor unions, and balls and masquerades hosted by Bohemians that were seen as hedonistic. In 1992 the venue was remodeled and emerged as a popular night club and music venue.


Webster Hall Events

Since the Eighties when it functioned as The Ritz, Webster Hall has hosted some of the biggest names in rock and roll including U2, Guns N Roses, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, and more. These days it continues to host popular acts like Broken Bells, Mayer Hawthorne, Modest Mouse, Sonic Youth, Black Lips, Dillinger Escape Plan, and others. The venue also functions as a nightclub, and is host to AOL's New York Broadband Rocks series as well as Bowery Ballroom Presents. There is still plenty of excitement going on at Webster Hall, although these days it is more in terms of great rock shows rather than the hedonistic parties of the 1910's and 1920's.


New York, New York

If you are looking to see the best theater in the world, New York is the place to be. Theaters are abundant in the city both on Broadway and off, and if you somehow tire of the theater scene there are plenty of museums like the MoMA to explore, along with countless music venues offering a wide variety of live music. Of course visiting New York landmarks like the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Central Park, and the Empire State Building is a must for any first time visitor. If you are a sports fan there are several professional sports teams playing exciting games all over the city. Catch a baseball game courtesy of the New York Yankees or the Mets, or a basketball game by the New York Knicks or the Brooklyn Nets. Hockey is also a big deal when the New York Rangers are playing at Madison Square Garden, and home NFL games of the New York Jets or Giants are just a short ride away.


Webster Hall Seating Layout

Webster Hall is comprised of three different rooms. The Grand Ballroom is the biggest and holds 1,500 people, while the Marlin Room holds 500 and the Studio holds 300. Any of the rooms offer top notch sound systems as well as great views of some of the best bands in the world playing in an intimate setting.


Trivia

During Prohibition alcohol still flowed freely in Webster Hall and apparently the police and politicians in New York were aware of it but did nothing to stop it. It is rumored that at the time the venue was owned by notorious mobster Al Capone. During the early 1900's Webster Hall endured a string of fires which occurred in 1902, 1911, 1930, 1938, and 1949.
