NH Friends, please join us this week from 5pm till close for farewell drinks. Sadly, after 8 awesome years, we will close our doors on May 31.

Thanks everyone for the overwhelming outpouring of support and well wishes! We will miss you. You are all the reason we were so successful for so long.

47 East Houston was, of course, the original home of the avant-garde performance space Knitting Factory. Milwaukee native Michael Dorf first opened the bi-level concept here in 1988, and it became a fixture in the downtown music scene.  Seven years later, the club grew into an entertainment company and moved crosstown to Tribeca where it stayed until 2009. The New York outpost now resides in Brooklyn.
