DeKalb Market Hall opens DeKalb Stage venue and speakeasy bar
DeKalb Market Hall, the food court that's part of the City Point complex in downtown Brooklyn that includes Alamo Drafthouse, just opened a venue within it, the DeKalb Stage. Described as a "dedicated 7,500-square-foot events space," DeKalb Stage will feature "public-facing arts, culture, and entertainment programming throughout the year, as well as private events." The 300-capacity venue opened this past weekend and upcoming events include a silent disco on February 23 and a "Geeks Who Drink" trivia event on March 5. When it's not being used as a venue, the DeKalb Stage space will be used as additional seating for DeKalb Market.
The DeKalb Market also just opened The Understudy, a speakeasy-inspired bar serving "signature cocktails and a special, rotating menu of snacks both crafted in collaboration with Dekalb Market Hall's eclectic mix of vendors."
City Point will soon be home to a new two-story location of independent bookseller McNally-Jackson, and the Century 21 will close to make way for nine new Alamo Drafthouse theaters.
