A new 140-capacity club has opened in Manhattan, New York City, called Outer Heaven.

Located at 191 Chrystie Street on the border of SoHo and Lower East Side, it features two rooms – a cocktail lounge fitted with a turntable and a “micro club” with a DJ booth and a small dancefloor, Resident Advisor reports.

The music policy is inspired by a range of styles, with influences cited including Andrew Weatherall, Red Axes, Romanian minimal and classic New York house and disco.

Outer Heaven will be open six days a week from 6:PM – closed on Sundays for the time being – with reservations for the cocktail bar available through the venue’s website.

Artists who have been booked so far include Ivan Smagghe, Wolf + Lamb, Galcher Lustwerk, Tim Sweeney, Justin Strauss and Thomass Jackson.

The sound and lighting systems were created by Scott Ciungan and Nicolas Matar, who founded legendary New York venues Output and Cielo, as well as being part of the original Studio 54 crew.

After the club’s first weekend, it posted on Instagram: “Successful maiden voyage. Staff needs their beauty sleep so we have offered them one night of snore leave.

“First sound tests proved productive, although some of the crew find the panorama booth’s symmetry somewhat unsettling,” it continued.

“DJs have established communication with our patrons via vibrant frequencies and most found them pleasing. Provisions running low, please send more sake.”

It comes after the news in December that a new, 500 capacity club SILO is set to open this month in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in a converted hangar. The opening party is set to take place this weekend (February 10), with Mike Servito, Kia and Vicki Powell on the line-up.
