Another beloved venue is reopening this summer in New York City!

Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker St.), home to endless indie concerts, drag queen bingo nights and more events since 2008, will reopen on August 28 with an exciting lineup booked through next winter!

The venue will reopen on Saturday, August 28 with two events. The first, with doors opening at 6 p.m, will be the Rhythm Revue Retro Soul Dance Party With Felix Hernandez, open to guests 18 and older. Tickets start at $20 and yes, there will be dancing. Following the big reopening on the main stage, an emo night party will open its doors at 11 p.m., complete with a DJ and many eccentric black outfits, we're expecting. That event is 21 and older, and tickets start at $12. 

Tickets for all upcoming Le Poisson Rouge events can be purchased online, with discounts often offered for advance sales. 

To help support staff and maintain the space following March 2020's government-mandated shutdown, Le Poisson Rouge launched a Patreon, to fundraise and open perks to fans, like advance sales, drink tickets and more. The venue has also raised over $23,000 on GoFundMe that opened in late March 2020. Donations are still accepted, and just $5 gets you a free drink ticket at a future event.
