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.
