In addition to a functioning winery and 21,000 square foot restaurant/event space, City Winery is also equipped with a full stage, state-of-the-art sound system and in-house A/V-making it one of the most interesting venues to ever hit Manhattan. Whether you are planning a private party, a public concert or an intimate evening of music and/or the spoken word, City Winery's stage and staff can accommodate a variety of live performances and cultural activities that will appeal to sophisticated New Yorkers, and wine connoisseurs, alike.Unfortunately, "to purchase tickets to any of the upcoming shows or classes, you must first become a Vinofile member." I don't think you need to be a member to always go there - for instance you could just be a VIP at the upcoming REM Carnegie Hall event, but I don't know. I also doubt you'll need to be a member to go to the Blackoutsabbath Rufus Wainwright show happening there on March 4th (no tickets for that yet) (for now Rufus is focused on the upcoming McGarrigle Christmas Hour show).
