The Lounge at Dixon Place: Cheap Booze, Free Live Music!
An exciting new spot for broke-asses has turned up on the Lower East Side. The Lounge at Dixon Place is now open for business and celebrating its upcoming grand opening with free music nights and a special party. The official grand opening on Thursday, April 8th, will feature music by Amour Obscur, a Weimar-style lounge trio who offer soulful insights into the darker side of love. They’ll also announce the winner of 'œThe Dixon' cocktail contest that night.
The Lounge is open nightly to the public, as well as for pre- and post- theater patrons attending performances in their main theater. Happy Hour in the Lounge (6-7pm, Mon-Fri) features special beer, wine, and well drink prices and a nightly Bartender’s Choice specialty cocktail. Cozy and neighborhood-artist oriented, all Lounge proceeds directly sustain the Dixon Place mission to support artists developing new works of performance including theater, dance, music, and literature, as well as the costs of maintaining the newly opened non-profit theater. Dope! Check out upcoming events this week below.
