The VYNL is a Plush, multiroom nightclub with a retro theme, plus a coffee bar & record shop at the entrance. We're a 1970s inspired Nightlife destination in East Village, Manhattan. It is a unique place to experience an era of cocktails, fine cuisine, and rock n roll. This one of a kind venue is currently booking Sonicbids artists for the summer/fall season. 


The Opportunity

Located in the heart of the East Village our new 7,000 square ft space hosts 3 floors of the best music, drink & food the city has to offer. Oh, and why The VINYL? As you walk in off 3rd Avenue you'll find a fully stocked record store and our own VNYL Coffee Co. running all day long. We pay homage to the good old days of when people play their music loud and when we used to listen to full albums on vinyl. We're looking for bands that can draw a crowd and fit the vibe of our retro-chic, 1970s throwback venue.
