There are plans to move the nightclub to a different location, although no venue has been announced.

In a statement Michael Feinstein said, "We are excited that Feinstein’s will be moving to a new location in 2013 when the Loews Regency Hotel undergoes a major renovation. We have several new opportunities that we are considering at this time. It’s been an amazing 14 year run with the hotel and I am extremely proud to have helped present some of the country’s greatest entertainers. I am grateful to the hotel’s management and staff for their hard work and dedication. We look forward to entertaining New York audiences at Feinstein’s for the month of September and then our annual Holiday show in December, followed by a special toast to the future on New Year’s Eve."

Among the many performers who have graced the nightclub over the years are Betty Buckley, Patti LuPone, Petula Clark, Barbara Cook and Judy Kuhn, among numerous others.

Another New York cabaret, the Oak Room at the Algonquin Hotel, also recently closed.

Michael Feinstein, the multi-platinum-selling, Emmy and five-time Grammy-nominated entertainer dubbed “The Ambassador of the Great American Songbook,” is considered one of the premier interpreters of American standards. His 200-plus shows a year have included performances at Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House and the Hollywood Bowl as well as the White House and Buckingham Palace. Feinstein earned his fifth Grammy Award nomination in 2009 for "The Sinatra Project," his Concord Records CD celebrating the music of “Ol’ Blue Eyes.” A new PBS concert special, "The Sinatra Legacy," is currently airing across the country; "The Sinatra Project, Volume II: The Good Life," its companion CD, was released last year. The PBS series "Michael Feinstein’s American Songbook" – in which he uncovers treasures of classic American music – is now available on DVD, with an additional disc of bonus features. The series is the recipient of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Television Broadcast Award. Feinstein serves as artistic director of the Center for the Performing Arts, a $170 million, three-theatre venue in Carmel, IN, which opened in January 2011. Feinstein is working with MGM to turn The Thomas Crown Affair into a Broadway musical. His many other credits include scoring the original music for the film ”Get Bruce” and performing on the hit television series “Better With You,” “Caroline in the City,” “Melrose Place,” “Coach,” “Cybill“ and “7th Heaven.” Feinstein's is located at 540 Park Avenue at 61st Street in New York City.
