News   Diamond Horseshoe Venue Reopens as "Decadent Nightclub" in NY
 
The Diamond Horseshoe, the space several levels beneath Manhattan's Paramount Hotel that served as a Broadway theatre in the 1970s, reopens Feb. 18 as a "glittering and decadent nightclub" that will "play host to a sumptuous collection of exclusive private events, live performances and unique nightlife experiences"—and possibly a return to plays and musicals.

The space has been closed since New Year's Eve for remodeling.

Erin Brunner, a spokesperson for LDV Hospitality, which leases the 6,000-square-foot space, said a schedule of public programming and events will be announced shortly. The entrance is located on West 46th Street, diagonally across the street from the Richard Rodgers Theatre where Hamilton is playing.

As for Queen of the Night, the lavish interactive Off-Broadway show from Sleep No More producer Randy Weiner, which closed Dec. 31, 2015, a spokesperson said the show will not return to the Diamond Horseshoe. Producers of the immersive show that combined circus, spectacle, dance, music, food and fashion, are seeking a new venue elsewhere in New York and hope to reopen this spring.

The subterranean Diamond Horseshoe space has been used for many purposes since it was opened by entrepreneur Billy Rose in 1938. From 1970 to 1982 it served as a Broadway theatre (known variously as the Stairway, Century and Mayfair), including extended runs of On Golden Pond (revival) and Dance With Me. Paramount Hotel owner Aby Rosen invested $20 million into the renovation of the space for the run of Queen of the Night.
