NYC's elite frequent this two level nightclub that is reminiscent of Vaudeville days.
The Box is the combined brain child of Richard Kimmel, Randy Weiner, Serge Becker (La Esquina, 205, Joe’s Pub), and Simon Hammerstein, whose famed grandfather Oscar built the Hammerstein Ballroom. The idea behind the space is to revisit the legendary vaudeville element that made this area of NYC special a century ago. This intimate restaurant and theater has two bars and a stage reminiscent of the old burlesque halls. The crowd is an upscale mix of celebs, trendsetters, and hipster music types, all seeking a bit more than a night in NYC’s standard deejay club scene.
