Lavish and dramatic, this 10,000-square-foot space features break out sections, 2 bars, a dance floor and infinite possibilities.

RUMI LogoFrom intimate gatherings to grand receptions, from extraordinary Bar Mitzvahs to gala dinner celebrations, RUMI is the unparalleled choice for events for 50 to 600 guests. RUMI offers a truly one-of-a-kind New York City event experience.

RUMI is an authentic, warm, and all-encompassing entertainment space built with organic architectural elements. A wall of 19th century doors, reclaimed from a convent, sit opposite a writhing tree sculpture that winds its way through a big top. Stained glass windows flank a bar adorned with artifacts sourced from a church in the Bronx. The main theater is crowned
with custom-made arches, while seats in the lounge area are restored temple pews.
RUMI is a techno, live indie music, and nightlife venue. The venue is unlike any other, steeped in the NYC tradition of CBGBs and the Fillmore. Working with the architectural remains of congregational spaces, salvaged from New York City, RUMI stands in stark contrast to the electronic functionality of modern day joints. It is an homage to an era of vaudevillian
eccentricity and Victorian decadence.
