Amendment 18 is located in the Historic Edgewater Hall. 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.

Hip Hop legends include the Method Man, Redman, Cameron, Capodonna, Rae Kwon, Ghostface, Inspectah Deck, Doey Rock and Heltah Sheltah. The late 90’s into the turn of the century focused on the underground scene to include Hardcore, Ska, Punk and Metal. Acts included John DeServio from Black Label Society, MadBall, Dan Nelson from Anthrax to name a few.

Many movies have been filmed in the club to include 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.

We're currently looking for three artists to play the third Thursday of every month.
