Rent the Hall

The Town Hall, known to audiences and performers alike for it's intimate atmosphere and unsurpassed acoustics. Designed by renowned architects McKim, Mead & White to reflect the democratic principles of the Hall's founders, they eliminated Box seats and any obstructions to view, giving birth to the term "Not a bad seat in the house."

This historic venue is available for daily and weekly rentals by performing arts companies, concert promoters, fundraisers, business meeting planners, and others for a variety of special presentations both public and private. For rental inquiries please contact:
