Retroclubnyc, a dance club that focuses primarily on music from the 1970s through today, has signed a 10-year lease at 161 West 23rd Street, located between Sixth and Seventh Avenues in the heart of Chelsea.
According to Jeff Wittels, who will run the club, the venue is aimed at a 35-and-over clientele, setting it apart from other nightclubs in the area. Along with the distinctively retro music, the venue will also offer a menu that includes wine, beer, creative cocktails and small plates when it opens in early spring.
The venue, which formerly housed a live music/DJ bar, features a 2,400-square-foot ground floor with a full bar, seating area and platform stage. The 2,000-square-foot lower level came with a private bar area, prep kitchen for light food, storage and restrooms at the time of lease.
“Retroclubnyc offers a unique concept that will be a great addition to the neighborhood,” said Winick Realty Group Executive Vice President Lee Block. “Ownership is excited to welcome them to the building.”
Block represented landlord New Men Associates in the long-term lease transaction. Retroclubnyc was represented by Wayne Rose of Rose Retail Realty Group.
