The Great Hall, a nightclub and concert venue located on 140 Stewart Ave. in Brooklyn, New York, is an impressive part of the group of venues collectively known as the Avant Gardner. It's an extraordinarily spacious and grandiose venue in which a stream of moving lights will glare at you from above and put you in a partying moo as house, techno or dance music plays - just as befits a nightclub. The club was once an industrial warehouse, and it still retains much of its old industrial aesthetic with brick walls, exposed beams and a massive, wide open dance floor. Combined with the other sections of the venue - the King's Hall, the Brooklyn Mirage and the Lost Circus - the whole venue can hold about 6,000 people. Artists who have performed at the Great Hall include KSHMR,Deadmau5 and the Boombox Cartel. Take your place right at the beating heart of New York City's nightlife.
