The Living Room is planning to reopen at its new location, 134 Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg, in mid-October. The venue, which has given countless musicians a start and a place to play, was previously located on Manhattan’s Lower East Side on Ludlow Street, and before that on Allen Street.
While attending that program, I was able to speak with Jennifer Gilson of the club. She told me of their opening target. She also said that the opening will probably be a soft one. She does not want to start booking acts while there is still renovation work to be done. Jennifer is optimistic that The Living Room‘s liquor license will be issued by mid October as well.
