New 3000-sqft nightclub to open in NYC, Virgo
Located on the docks of the Lower East Side it hopes to bring more electronic music to the area
A new 3,000 square foot venue, Virgo, is set to open on Manhattan's Lower East Side.
The new nightclub, named after the star sign of co-founder Thatcher Shultz, has yet to confirm an opening date — but early concept art shows a "wild" interior, with LED walls, a purple concrete bar, infinity mirrors and even a carpeted room for DJs to play through an independent audio system hook up to the back of the venue.
Shultz told TimeOut: "Unlike Brooklyn, Lower Manhattan hasn't had a great lounge in electronic, house and disco in recent years. Now that the city's consumers have developed a taste for these genres, Virgo offers them a premium music and nightlife experience around them."

Working alongside Shultz, is Duncan Abdelnour who also said: “We invested heavily into our sound and lighting equipment because we know how important they are to the house and electronic scene specifically.”
Abdelnour continues: “Lights and effects offer an added sensory element that can help build up excitement and emotion. And our world-class speakers and equipment ensure DJs don’t have to compromise their sound to play in Manhattan.”
