The Melrose Ballroom, a massive performance space located at 36-08 33rd Street in Astoria, opened its doors last month.
The venue–which features four bars, a ballroom and a VIP lounge–has been designed to host corporate and private parties as well as nightlife and sporting events.
“There will be Latin, Greek, and house music events coming up,” said Dimitri Kafchitsas, the general manager.
Upcoming events include Nikos Makropollos, Neiky Zhna, Anna Vissi, and Antonhe Pemoe. There is also an event planned called Soft Opening, which features DJs such as DJ Louie Minaya and DJ Tiny Tim.
The venue will also be offering a range of sporting events.
The Melrose Ballroom already features ‘Thursday Night Fights,’ which showcases Thai kickboxing matches every week. There are plans to screen films at the center too.
The new center is located near Astoria’s 36th Avenue cultural corridor, which includes Kaufman Astoria Studios and the Museum of the Moving Image.
“We truly believe that this area is the new art and entertainment district,” Kafchitsas said.“The location is fantastic.”
