NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Brooklyn’s Warsaw at the Polish Home has signed an exclusive booking agreement with Live Nation's House of Blues Entertainment division.
“Warsaw was the next logical move for us in New York. It is a vibrant music market with a huge population base that we think can be even better served at the club and theatre level.” said Ben Weeden, COO of House of Blues Entertainment, a division of Live Nation that will book the Warsaw in a press statement.
Built in 1904, the 1000-seat Warsaw, was originally known simply as The Polish National Home, and served as transient housing for Polish immigrants. However, in recent years, the venue has been repurposed to serve as a concert venue and bistro, serving up a heady stew of punk rock and food with a Polish flair.
Warsaw Founder and Managing Director Mark Chroscielewski said, “In a unique fusion of community activism by day and rock and roll by night, the Warsaw at the Polish National Home continues the mission of its founders. From Polish patriotic events, to local environmental projects, to fighting power plant proposals to hosting concerts headlining Patti Smith, Lorde, Prophets of Rage, Weezer and many, many more fantastic artists, Warsaw lives up to its nickname as the capital of Brooklyn." – Staff Writers
