Marquee New York released an alluring documentary-style video that introduces the nightclub’s distinctively glamorous renovations, state-of-the-art technology, and its music programming featuring the most in-demand artists from around the globe. Blending the excitement of a sold-out music festival with a high energy nightclub, the new Marquee will be an edgy, music-centric venue revolutionizing the New York nightlife scene – just as it did a decade ago.
Instead of solely offering nightly bottle service, Marquee will feature a variety of entertainment programming, including a 1980s inspired club night with downtown doyenne Susanne Bartsch and concert-style nights with advance tickets available for purchase. Along with original co-founders Noah Tepperberg and Jason Strauss, veteran colleagues Rich Thomas, Andrew Goldberg and Jonathan Schwartz will also be partners in the space.
“When it first opened, Marquee pioneered a shift in the nightlife landscape by creating a new type of club. A decade later, there is a deviation in what people truly want from a nightclub, which is an authentic, entertainment driven ambience. The new Marquee will be a filtered version of a mega club for people who don’t want to buy bottle service to get an up close musical experience,” said Tepperberg.
Designed by Josh Held, the designer of W Hotels and Bar Americain, Marquee will be transformed into a tripped out warehouse with 28 ft. ceilings and industrial design accents, including chandeliers constructed from functioning microphones, exposed equalizers, walls covered in recycled leather belts and welded rebar handrails. When entering the space, guests will encounter a long procession that leads them to the middle of the expansive open space – channeling the exhilaration of stumbling upon an underground music venue. An intimate mezzanine and main floor alcove room, “The Boombox,” are extensions of the space, but can also function as their own self-contained venues, ideal for private parties.
