Nebula, one of the largest nightclubs in New York City history, is set to open on Friday, October 22nd.
The club’s 11,000-square-foot floor plan is divided into three areas: a 5,500 square foot main dance floor, 2,500 square foot mezzanine section, and 3,000 square foot lower level. Upon opening, the club will boast a 700-person capacity.
A significant selling point is Nebula’s high-tech ceiling consisting of six movable video panels. These surfaces span the length of the club and can be controlled by event organizers to easily change up the space’s ambiance.
To mark the occasion, organizers are throwing a series of soft opening events beginning on the 22nd and running through Halloween weekend. Their grand opening party is set for Friday, November 5th. A lineup has yet to be announced.
Richie Romero, founder of numerous NYC clubs such as 1 Oak and Up and Down, came up with the concept for Nebula alongside MIXX Lifestyle Co-Founder Yang Gao. Rob Toma, the founder of TCE Presents, is in charge of music curation, and EMRG Media Co-Founder Erica Maurer will oversee special events.
Nebula’s opening comes as NYC continues reopening after suffering through the brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic. As of October 19th, 73.1% of the city’s population has at least one vaccination shot, while 65.6% is fully vaccinated.
