Located in Hell’s Kitchen, NY, Stage 48 is a multi-use venue that hosts Concerts, Night Life, and Private/Corporate Events. Built in the 1950s as a horse stable, the building has been completely remodeled utilizing the beauty of the old industrial architecture and incorporating complimentary modern elements to create an ambience that currently does not exist in any NYC venue. A large horseshoe balcony overlooks the main floor providing excellent site-lines of the 34 foot wide stage. Several elevated VIP areas are located on both floors and a state of the art Sound, Lighting and Video system will ensure an experience like none other.
