Le Poisson Rouge

Le Poisson Rouge is a 700-capacity (300 seated) performance space and venue founded by musicians on the site of the historic Village Gate. Dedicated to the fusion of popular and art cultures in music, film, theater, dance, and fine art, the venue’s mission is to revive the symbiotic relationship between art and revelry, to establish a creative asylum for both artists and audiences. LPR prides itself in offering the highest-quality concert programming, acoustics, and design. The state-of-the art performance space, engineered by the legendary John Storyk (Electric Lady Studios, Jazz at Lincoln Center), offers full flexibility in multiple configurations: seated, standing, and in-the-round.
