The Highline Ballroom is Closing
In a statement released today, the Highline Ballroom announced it will be closing sometime in early 2019.
Owner Steven Bensusan provided no details on a final date and suggested that the venue would plan to reopen near its current location in Chelsea, but current shows on the calendar past February are likely to be rescheduled.
Bensusan attributed the move to the landlord choosing not to renew their lease, which would give the landlord the freedom to market the space to high-paying tenants eager to set up shop near the High Line and the new residential buildings that have transformed the neighborhood in recent years.
Look for announcements in the future if the venue finds a new location.
