Local 802 Clubroom Update: January 2020 Rental Hiatus
Members should be aware that during the month of January 2020, rentals of the 802 Club Room and Room B will take a hiatus. The administration needs this pause to look at the state of the facility and discuss improvements for the benefit of members. The normally-packed schedule of rehearsals and events makes such assessments nearly impossible without disrupting these activities and causing a distraction for those renting the spaces. We will share news of any changes once a plan is in place and expect that those who have regularly rented the rooms will want to return in the months following the January break. Stay tuned!
Affordable rehearsal space is a luxury in New York City, and finding it is among the most difficult challenges musicians must face. Local 802 is one of the few local unions in the American Federation of Musicians that owns its own building, and with this great asset our union is able to provide musicians with two large rehearsal rooms that can be rented and reserved.
The Clubroom has a capacity of 220 people and is suitable for large ensembles. Room B is approximately 520 square feet and suitable for small and medium sized ensembles.
Members can reserve the clubroom Monday through Friday 9-5pm ($10/hour) and 5-9pm ($20/hour); Saturday 10am – 10pm ($65/hour); Sunday 10am – 10pm ($70/hour)
- Grand piano (in Clubroom only)
