The Cutting Room

What it is: A lot of big things happened at this club during the decade that it was located on West 24th Street. Lady Gaga performed there when she was still Stefani Germanotta; stars like Sting, Norah Jones and Carly Simon played sets on the DL; and co-owner Chris “Mr. Big” Noth met his future wife, who was bartending at the time. When the venue shuttered in 2009 due to a huge rent hike, Noth and his partner, Steve Walter, started looking for a new space—and three years later, it’s just about ready.

Why you should care: The new venue eclipses the original both in size and fanciness. Formerly home to a carpet store, the space has been completely transformed, with 25-foot-high ceilings and a balcony that rings the entire venue. Like the old club, there’s a bar and lounge in the front and a performance room in the back; a removable wall between the two sections means the club can seat up to 450. Live entertainment will be on offer nightly, including some only-in-NYC offerings, like a live version of porn star turned X-rated talk-show host Robin Byrd’s long-running public-access chatfest. 44 E 32nd St between Madison and Park Aves (212-691-1900, thecuttingroomnyc.com). Opens October.—Raven Snook
