The Opportunity

Staten Island's very own speakeasy is looking for regional acts that fit the unique nature of Amendment 18. 

Edgewater Hall was built in 1876 as a Vaudeville, Theatre & Event space by Michael Nynan. During the late 1890’s Bechtel Brewery made its home there and during Prohibition, Amendment 18 was a Speakeasy frequented by the Vanderbilts & Barrymores. Edgewater Hall was acquired & run by Volunteers of America from 1940 to 1970. In the 1970’s it was converted into an antique center by John Gray & Anthony Deorato.

Many movies have been filmed in the club to include the School of Rock and Ethan Hawke Staten Island. Celebrities have celebrated events there to include The Mob Wives, The Bronx Tale’s Clem Caserta & Impractical Jokers Sal, Joe, Murr, and Q.
