The Opportunity

The Delancey is a three-level club equipped with a music venue, downstairs, a main-level bar, and a rooftop garden peering out onto the Manhattan side of the Williamsburg Bridge. Located on Delancey Street in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, just a few blocks from the F / M / J / Z trains, we're in the epicenter of the thriving Downtown NYC music scene. The Delancey has always supported indie artists and gives musicians a platform to showcase their music in on our legendary stage. Since 2004, we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of indie music in NYC, and we strive to continue giving artists the opportunity to play on our stage.
